Its easy to be discouraged. We are amazing at internalizing and tearing ourselves down. There is definitely an element of the human psyche that is remarkable at self destruction. What we need to learn is how to turn setbacks into opportunities. Accept that we have hit a wall, a roadblock or whatever cliche you what to use as an excuse to quit or belittle yourself and move past it.
The truth is these setbacks are paths that we can learn not to take in the future. Thinking about how you got to where you are now rather than the fact that you are there. Simply analyzing and identifying where things went wrong is an invaluable mindset for making positive change.
Use your setbacks as lessons strive forward with confidence that you can do better this time around. you can do this because you have the knowledge to do so and the knowledge to avoid this specific pitfall.
Life’s progress is about learning from our failures as much if not more than from our successes.
Fight hard against the self deflation and strive for self motivation. Fight hard and rise above your setbacks.
