Secrets of Success

Two Steps Forward?



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."
