Change Your Approach

Disappointment is something that everyone should experience at least once in life.

Why? Because we need to know how to react when something doesn’t go the way we want. Sometimes, we have to be disappointed in order to force ourselves to change our approach.

If you've only done things one way and got the same results, how can you expect for the results to change?

 

 

 

Once I changed my approach, I yielded better results. I still got disappointment, but I handled it differently. I didn’t see it as a disaster. I studied what I did, the results I got, and my disappointment. Took what I learned from that, and revised my approach for the next attempt. Rinse and repeat.

It’s not all roses, but neither is life. Allow yourself to feel. Then reflect, re-evaluate, and try again.

Until next time,

Allow Yourself to Feel

Peep the scene.

You invest time and energy into something with the hopes that it will be a success. You weigh the pros and cons, mentally preparing yourself for the worst while hoping for the best. Anxiety has you in shambles.

The countdown is over. It’s time to find out your fate…and it’s the worst case scenario.

*insert expletive of choice here*

No matter how much you prepare for it, disappointment hurts like hell. My way of dealing with disappointment was to be upset for a sec and then move on to whatever was next. That worked until this year when I realized that there’s beauty in disappointment.

The catch is, in order to experience the beauty in disappointment, I have to allow myself to feel the disappointment.

When you know better, you do better, right?

Until next time,

Joy
