Setbacks

August 12 2017

A missed promotion. A late project. An injury. A disagreement with a loved one. A failed deal. A lost partnership. An audition with no call back.

When you hit a speed bump or obstacle, how do you deal? Do you focus on what cannot be and concentrate on what is out of your control? Or do you place emphasis on your response?

Obstacles test your mentality: is your mindset fixed or flexible? How long will you remain disappointed? Instead of dwelling on the outcome that might not be, what can you change? How can you grow?

Setbacks are opportunities to double-down on your goals.

Reflect and shift gears. Re-channel your energy. Stay your course.
