When you stumble, it can be hard to get moving again. Nothing is the same as it was, and you must adapt to a new way of doing things. Though not impossible, it is frustrating.
The tendency is to fall back into old habits. But they are what led you to fall in the first place. If they did not profit you before, do not expect them to become profitable.
Having shed such notions, you will be surprised at how useless they really were. Why did you cling to them for so long? Not only can you go on, but they were actually holding you back.
An individual must set their own course. No one can tell you what to do, nor can they do it for you. Everyone's experience is different, so there is no formula for success.
What they can tell you is what not to do. Although, you have probably figured that out through trial and error. Still, those who do not learn from their mistakes are doomed to repeat them.
The ones who wish to progress will not be deterred. Stumbling is just a part of the journey. You have learned to make your steps sure, and now are headed in the right direction.
