What lessons are you learning?

This quote by Oprah is so true. Sometimes it’s the detours that turn out to be the most fruitful ideas which lead to the greatest lessons. Delays, disappointments, and detours are all a part of your success journey and serve a purpose. Through life’s greatest difficulties, valuable lessons can be taught that make us stronger, if we can take time to look for them. We continue to be amazed at how our weekly winning words are aligning perfectly with what we are experiencing in our lives right now. Seriously, can someone say detour?! These times may feel more like a dead end than a detour, but it’s important to remember that there are no dead ends, just detours. We hope this edition of your Weekly Winning Resource is encouraging to you, and will help you navigate through the detours you may be facing right now. Remember, closed doors do not decide your fate, they simply redirect your path. Keep moving in the right direction, you will get there!

Just like when you’re on a road trip and you run into a detour, it causes some stress and definitely some fear of the unknown. While you may still experience some disappointment when things don’t go your way, you can learn to enjoy the scenery on life’s detours and navigate safely and successfully to your desired destination.
