Setbacks are inevitable, whether you’re striving for perfection, or dealing with difficult people, but once you are able to get beyond your setbacks, you may spend less time being concerned about them.
To deal with setbacks it’s important we have composure, because without it’s may be easy to panic. Having composure is based on our self-beliefs and confidence, and comes with experience.
When we have composure, dealing with setbacks should be 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 may be easy to look back and question ourselves, but that is counter-productive. Nothing ever stays the same, circumstances inevitably reach a conclusion one way or another. It is important to recognise progress through the setbacks.
However little progress we think we’ve made, we’ve probably made more than we think. It’s important to see progress as a contributing factor, for a more positive outcome.
