If at first you don't succeed......

‎'Every set back developed his game' and how true is that for those determined to succeed. I gave up watching Andy Murray playing tennis, I couldn't deal with his continued failings and disappointments. Every time he showed signs of tremendous potential--a real contender, but in each eventuality his losses were bitter and painful. On occasions I even said to Scots family members 'If you want to ruin your day just watch Andy Murray playing tennis'...upsetting as it was to them. But with his Olympic gold and now waking up to the news that Andy won the US Open, his first grand slam, Andy has taught me again the timeless lesson about hard work and perseverance. In life and in spirituality the odds often seem well stacked against us and with quitting not being an option we must plod on. In our journey I doubt we face the odds that Andy has and besides that we do have a most benevolent supreme friend to aid us along the way. Perhaps that is what made the difference for Andy in his grand slam victory, as it does appears to have dawned on him in the picture.
