Setbacks are inevitable. 

It is how you deal with them that determines your ultimate success.

It is easy to stay motivated when you are winning. 

What is challenging is staying motivated when things are going badly. 

Ultimately, success depends upon your ability to handle inevitable setbacks.

Here is how...

1. Realize they are temporary.

Every successful man and woman has encountered setbacks, learning what does not work is an essential part of learning what does! 

Setbacks are a sign that you're making progress. 

Remember: Life's delays are not Life's denial.

2. Recommit to your goals.

If you truly want to succeed, banish all thoughts of giving up before you accomplish your objective. 

Be willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, within legal and ethical bounds. 

You will get there eventually.

3. Contact some positive colleagues.

Positive emotions are contagious, so this is a great time to reconnect with people who trust in themselves and trust in you. 

Give positive encouragement to others and they will return the favour. 

Get energized together!

4. Reset your timetable.

You may not be achieving success as quickly as you would have liked, yet success generally comes one step at a time. 

This is a great time to "retrench" and think through what you might do differently to achieve your goals.

5. Take action today.

Pursuing success is like riding a horse; if you get thrown off, you have to get right back on it. 

Rather than dwell on the setback, take some action - right now - that will continue your momentum.

Know what you want, work to get it, then value it once you have it.

May You Enjoy A Lovely Day.
