We've all heard the saying, "Two steps forward, one step back." But it really just emphasises the negative. It's like saying, "We can't have any progress without losing momentum." Why not turn it around and say "One step back, two steps forward." Now it's a positive encouragment. It now means, "I may take a step backward, but when I do I'm going to take two steps forward."

If you are one of those the takes one step forward and two steps back, change the way you walk: take one step back and two steps forward; at least you will be making progress. God Bless, Vic, Team leader of God's Family.
Remember, two steps forward and one step back is still one step forward. As long as you keep moving forward, you're winning. No one is perfect -- forgive yourself, learn from your experience, and soldier onward. Progress, not perfection!
