Yes, at first blush, this little gem of a thought does seem at least a bit counter-intuitive. But it’s the things we reach for without success that are the ones that spur us to reach just a little bit higher, with an extra moment of thought, an extra ounce of effort, a bit more ooomph . . . that spurs growth in desire, planning, and persistence. How boring and aimless our lives would be if we always got what we wanted. Sometimes not getting what we want is, indeed, a stroke of luck, at labor, in love and in all of life. May it inspire you to higher heights throughout this new work week.

This little nugget of working wisdom came to us recently from Lisandra K., of Columbia, South Carolina. Lisandra shares that her home city is known for its warm Southern Charm, and its Hot-Hot summer weather. Stay cool, Lisandra!
