"There's always failure. And there's always disappointment. And there's always loss. But the secret is learning from the loss, and realizing that none of those holes are vacuums." ~ Michael J. Fox
How do you handle disappointment?
Disappointment comes in all shapes and sizes. It can be big (didn’t get a promotion, break-up, didn’t get into the school of your choice) or it can be small (like my example above). It doesn’t matter whether its large or insignificant, how we deal with disappointment is what makes the difference.
Many times throughout my life, disappointment has been a great teacher. It has taught me determination, resiliency and overall a stronger person.
So the next time you’re disappointed, ask yourself if maybe your expectations were too high. Flip your perspective and realize that whatever happened may just be a blessing in disguise. The Universe works in mysterious ways.
