Get your support and your resources ready, so that you can turn to them for help, while still pressing onward.
Backtracking, waste, unexpected expenses, tears, anger, hopelessness (not helplessness) and frustration are signs of lessons and learning, not signs of ultimate failure.
Load your mind with pertinent/ focused knowledge, guidance and information. Then make an honest effort. Temporarily wallow in the unpleasantness of not succeeding. Go back and read, listen and ask, now in a more focused manner. Next, SLEEP ON IT! You will receive insights, new directions, and renewed energy to feed your progress.
