Setbacks are part of the cycle of life. Don’t let these take you down. Setbacks are just a setup for a comeback – if you take advantage of the opportunity that was just handed to you in a guise of a setback. THE COMEBACK IS ALWAYS STRONGER THAN THE SETBACK.
Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.
• Accept what you cannot control. Just let go. You can’t control a hurricane or a pandemic.
• Focus on what you can control. You may have to adjust HOW you work to achieve your goals.
• Look for the lessons/opportunities. There’s always something you can learn – if you look for it. A new way of looking at something, a new method, something you ought to stop doing. These can help you in the future.
Your feelings of disappointment are valid and it is important to allow those feelings, but don’t wallow in them. Wallowing in them keeps you stuck.
