Setbacks can #BOW!

Setbacks. They attack motivation and aspirations.

Setbacks try to suck the life out of our dreams.

Setbacks want us to tuck our tail and run, retreat, find a corner and cry secretly.

Well, I have a message for every setback that crosses my path, “#bow!”

There’s a reason I put the #pound in front of the word. This isn’t about twitter/insta tags. This is about the *boom* you should feel on the inside when you see it. See it and feel it.

Now for the setbacks, the stupid interferences that make you doubt yourself. The very things that cause people to open up to negativity. You have to refuse to keel over and take the beating. Take your stand. Tell the setback, “#bow!”

I thought I rocked a test I took a week ago. I was on cloud9 about how easy the semester would go. After all, this is the SECOND time I am taking this finance course. I should not have to stress about it. WRONG! I did horribly on the test. I got cocky and didn’t study. Ok, I get it. But to bomb so bad?! I am furious! I will not just cave to this! I am bigger than this numerical nightmarish challenge!

Finance, #bow! I will make you eat the dirt the worms poo in, you hear?! #bow!

This is the challenge I am facing… make that: slaughtering.

Name your challenge. Name the setback. Tell it to #bow!




Make your setback BEG for MERCY!

Now make it beg for mercy.
