“My favorite piece of advice by far for dealing with difficulty is to make sure you think about your goal in terms of getting better, rather than being good.
As you’ll recall from Chapter 3, when we are focused on personal growth and development, on making progress rather than on proving ourselves, we deal with difficulty far more gracefully.
We tend to see setbacks as informative, rather than as signs of personal failure.
We don’t worry as much about the likelihood of success because we know that even if we never do it perfectly, we will certainly improve.
(And getting better is, after all, the goal.)”
