Something you were counting on might not come through, but that doesn`t have to be the end of your forward progress. Step back and take a look at the problem from another angle. Just because your first, second or even third attempt didn`t work doesn`t mean that the fourth or fifth one won`t. Giving up really isn`t your style, and it would be a shame to end things on a sour note. If the present situation simply isn`t workable, then this is a good time to start planning for the future.
