Sometimes when the chips are down and it feels like everything around you is not going how you planned or envisaged it to be, it is so easy to give up. Furthermore, what frequently occurs in such situations is that a whole load of other negative thoughts and depressive situations begin to creep into the mind. This leads an individual to sink further into the depths of gloom and depression.
I think that this is just human nature; we beat ourselves up when something goes wrong. Some people are able to use setbacks as a form of motivation which not only pushes them to continue trying even harder, but also inspires them to reach the absolute top.
On the other hand, other people allow setbacks to bring them down completely- they suffer a complete and utter physical and mental shutdown. Not only is this self-destructive physically, but it is also mentally destructive. It halts your progress in life.
Suffering a setback, whether in your professional or personal life, does not have to mean the end of the world, or you giving up your goals and dreams. Rather, use it as a frame where you look at yourself and all the accomplishments you have SO FAR, and by being grateful for who you are now, and how far you have come, build up the strength and determination to motivate yourself to fight for who you want to be tomorrow, and in the future.
The one who shakes off the dust of setback quickly from his shoulders by doing the above is simply the successful man we see around. Dwelling in your set backs and continuously lamenting over spoilt milk does nothing better than push you into the world of failure.
As we enter a new week, shake of all the dust of setback holding you down in depression , anger and meltdown, join the successful man’s train by appreciating what you have achieved so far, what you are today and step forward for tomorrow.
