You didn’t reach your goal

You didn’t reach your goal

Just because you've set a goal doesn't mean that you will reach it. The best feeling about reaching a goal is the journey it took to get there. If all your goals were easy, then you'd feel nothing at the end of the process. 

Solution: Take the goal you didn't achieve and try a different approach. Your heroes miss their goals too, but they don't give up.
