Don't give up ..... hang in there. Success may be just a few more steps away

A couple of unsuccessful attempts at winning a new job, or having "bombed" at an interview, can really leave you feeling quite discouraged and with a few bruises to your self-confidence, can't it?

It's these sorts of times when we need some inspiration, so as to rekindle our determination to move forward with a sense of hope.

Have a look at what follows, and perhaps see if there is something here that helps you re-discover the positive attitude and self-belief you need to persevere. So hang in there, because things can always be turned around!

The following video clip is an uplifting one. You may have heard of the idea of "pay it forward", whereby when people receive an act of kindness they in turn pass it on to someone else........ Well in this video, people are influenced by SEEING others being kind and considerate- and they are inspired to do the same. It reminds us that we can each make a difference, and that small acts of kindness can have wider and more far-reaching ripple effects than what we might imagine ..

Try and remind yourself of times where you have overcome similar set-backs and disappointments ...

"The difference between a successful person and others is often not so much a lack of strength, nor a lack of knowledge,
but rather it is more often a lack of perseverance."
Vince Lombardi

"Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration"
Evan Esar
