Setbacks are inevitable. Once I get beyond the setbacks I spend less time being concerned about them. But to deal with setbacks it’s important we have composure, because without composure it’s easy for panic to set in.
When we have composure, dealing with setbacks will always seem easier. There are no right or wrong ways to deal with setbacks, it’s what works for us, but we must try not to be critical of ourselves when we’re going through that period.
It’s easy to look back and question ourselves on what we should have done differently, but that’s counter-productive in my own book. Nothing ever stays the same, circumstances will inevitably reach a conclusion one way or another. Perhaps that’s something we need to think about.
Perhaps we must also try to recognise our progress through the setbacks, however little progress we make. However little progress we think we’ve made, we’ve probably made more than we think. Always see progress as a contributing factor, for a more positive outcome and the start of something new.
