Setbacks are inevitable in life, whether you’re striving for perfection, or dealing with difficult people around you, but once we get beyond our setbacks, we will spend less time being concerned about them.
To deal with setbacks it’s important we have composure, because without it, it’s easy for us to panic. Having composure is usually based on self-beliefs and confidence and comes with experience.
As children, we’re never far away from our emotions, and trying to keep a mental positive attitude can be difficult. When anyone has composure, dealing with setbacks will always seem easier. There are no right or wrong ways to deal with setbacks, it’s what works for the individual – but we must try not to be critical of ourselves.
It’s easy to look back and question ourselves, but that’s counter-productive. Nothing ever stays the same, circumstances will inevitably reach a conclusion one way or another. It’s important we recognise our progress through the setbacks.
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.
