What you do when you hit a plateau says a lot about your ability to become successful.

When you hit a plateau, do you say, “Woe is me. I am stuck. I knew I couldn’t do this?” or do you say, “I know I can do this. I need to step back and try a different approach.” Or “I need to bring someone else in with fresh eyes to look at it with me.”

Do plateaus challenge you to look for solutions or do they cause you to despair and give up?

I’ve heard someone say, “When people give up, they don’t realize just how close they were to the answer they were looking for.”
