Quotes About Disappointment and How To Handle It

 

 

What do you think about these quotes about disappointment?

How we each handle disappointment is often very different in many cases.

Some people do not handle it well. They feel like failures, or they become angry that things did not go as they had wanted and planned. Others take disappointment and learn from it, so that they do not have to feel it again on the same situation. They re-think, re-tool, and ask themselves what they can learn and change from this experience.

For example, if you did not get your dream job, why? While it might feel painful, send a note and ask the person that interviewed you if they can offer some insight on why you were not chosen. Or what you can work on to score a position next time. If someone won a pitch over you, what did they do differently that worked?

Learn from what they did that was different, and incorporate those thoughts, ideas, and skills, if appropriate.
