Setbacks stymie my progress

Takes me some time to recover from a
setback

They  get
to me for a while then I recover

Depending on the severity of the setback
I can recover rather quickly

Setbacks? What are setbacks?

Well it’s pretty obvious that the closer you are to rating yourself as a 5, the faster you can get on with whatever activity you were working on when the setback occurred.  Most of us probably fall into the 3 and 4 range. Anything below that needs some attention if we are to achieve our goals and dreams.  You lucky ones are the ones who can take a setback in stride.  You are able to analyze the cause of the setback and quickly consider the options you have to move forward.

For those of you who are in the 1 and 2 range the Six- step process will be a valuable tool to add to your mental tool box. There is someone out there who has experienced what you are going through. If you can find that person perhaps their insight as to how they addressed their setback would be helpful to you. This is one of the places where expanding your personal network can be very valuable.  Then there is always the information that is available in libraries and over the internet.  If your situation is such that setback presetbacksvent you from functioning normally, professional help may be the answer.

Whatever your situation, I hope a few setbacks won’t stop you from reaching your objectives and achieving your dreams. In the word! s of Dr. Robert H. Schuller, “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.” Be resilient!  Don’t let the tough times define you. Be that tough person that can react to a tough situation with personal fortitude and creativity.
