Surprising What You Can Learn From a Setback

1. Humility

When we make a mistake, fail, ourselves, or fail others we have a choice. Either make excuses for our behavior or admit fault and move on. Which one takes more strength? Humility takes more strength than excuses yet leaves us stronger yet to handle more.

2. Patience

A setback is merely a time to reflect on a new approach to accomplish your goals. Patience allows us the time and discipline to evaluate our approach. Without it setbacks would mean failure.

3. Hope

An optimistic spirit feeds the fire of our ambition.

Welcome setbacks when they occur. Use them as an opportunity to recognize the above and realize “The greats weren’t great because at birth they could paint. The greats were great cause they paint a lot.” – Macklemore, 10,000 hours.
