Defeating Disappointment - Strategies to Overcome Any Obstacle and Succeed

Wealth Creators must learn how to overcome disappointments in order to become Effective, Wealthy, Successful and Happy

 
We’ve all been there. We think we’re well on our way towards a specific goal – whether it’s a new career or a new lease on life – when all of a sudden disaster strikes! We have a setback. Perhaps you didn’t capture the heart of your crush, the promotion fell through, or somehow your perfect plan just didn’t work out.
 
Disappointment is only human. However, knowing how to accept, manage, and strategize beyond disappointment is the real key to success!
 
Here are some excellent tips to enable you to stay on track, remain motivated, and defeat your disappointments so that you can overcome them and reap your success:
 
1.    Accept reality. Disappointment is a necessary part of life. In order to experience success, every person must face setbacks or disappointment sometime in their life. The reality of life gives us the polarity of setbacks and successes to better appreciate our wins. Such setbacks also encourage us to strive harder to achieve our goals.

  • Overcoming challenges brings us the wisdom to reach even higher goals.
 
2.    Accept relativity. Facing up to the fact that life will always bring trials to overcome will help you beat disappointment in your current mission. Hindsight will inevitably show you that no setback is as big as you thought it was at the time.

  • Realizing that life could have handed you a much larger disappointment helps you put the setback in perspective.
 
3.    Do not dwell. When you are hit with a challenge to obtaining your goal, it can be very easy to sink into disappointment. If you find yourself having a pity party, pull yourself up with some positive thinking. Above all else, do not dwell on the last snafu in your struggle to succeed. Dwelling on your disappointment will not change the fact that it happened.

  • Spending your time feeling sorry for yourself will delay your success as well as permeate your life with unnecessary pessimism and futility.
 
4.    Create realistic expectations. Like many people today, you may be harboring an unrealistic expectation of yourself. Perhaps you had this inspiring idea to change your life in some grand way. Naturally, you want to achieve your goal now and without anything less than stellar performance! However, realistically, you must recognize that achieving your goals may take some time. You can always adjust your expectations higher and higher as you conquer new goals!

  • Having unreal expectations of yourself will only set you up for failure, as you cannot reach impossible heights.
 
5.    Learn from your mistakes. When a setback occurs, the first thing you’d like to do might be to toss in the towel on the whole enterprise! However, a much wiser person bent on success will acknowledge the disappointment as a learning experience.

  • If you examine how and why the unwanted situation occurred, then you may be able to restructure your strategy for even bigger and better things than you had originally planned!
 
6.    Stay positive. Lastly, you can surely find your success and win your prize by obliterating disappointment with positive thoughts. Know that you will obtain your goal! Pessimistic thoughts can swallow you whole if you let them, forcing you to delay or give up your dreams altogether.

  • Following your positive thoughts with decisive, confident and positive action will propel you to new heights.
 
The best strategy to become successful happy and effective is to follow the Kaizen Wealth Transformational Process.
 
Even though disappointment may creep into your life when you least expect it, you can take it in stride by following these techniques. Setbacks don’t define your life; it’s how you react to them that will determine your success. When you face disappointment, learn from the situation, deal with it positively, and confidently move forward toward your goal. Success is yours!

This article is so true!!! Setbacks don't define our life...but the way we deal with them definitely does!!!
My recent...(?!) in September house breaking and theft of most of my electronic eqipment, computers ect resulted in me being disconnected from life, people and myself!!! I felt disappointed, my inner being bruised and hurt!!! I let the outsiders to negatively affect my life, my plans and commitment to Kaizen Challenge...I let the event to take away my responsibility for the situation!! I had such en easy justification for feeling sorry for myself and listening to people saying"you are so lucky not being hurt" ! Unaware I was sliding back into negativity and complacency....until my birthday and the Christmas celebrations....I realised that life carries on and I can chose: either to just exist or to look at the situation from the perspective of the Wealth Creator Student and go back to Kaizen Challenge once again and start creating my reality the way I want it irrespective of the circumstances!!! My inner world of thoughts started to influence my outer reality !!!
I decided to "let go" of many things from the past...to do some clearing of spaces from negative energies accumulated since the robbers intrusion.....I looked around at the collections of "the material things" around me ....suddenly outdated, unnecessary and blocking new things to come my way!!! Also a pleasant surprise: in the past I would have been in depth of depression and negativity and stress....now it really doesn't matter any more!!
I have ability to center again, to disconnect from negatives and create positive "turn around" strategy, the ability to feel wealthy, succesful and happy irrespective of life dissappointment s!!
Thank you Hannes for the journey...since I've joined your Wealth Creators Club it has been an adventure of self discovery and daily Kaizen with and through people!

This moment is light years away from where I found myself 2 years ago. It is at once the exciting end of a 49 day challenge that seemed to evolve from a two year journey, yet at the same time it has magic wrapped up in it like any wonderful new experience upon which one is about to embark, like getting married to your sweetheart or Read more...

I have always been miserable in everything I do, because I always wanted something bigger and better.  I used to wake up in the morning and try to convince myself that I need to get up and go to work to get a pay slip the end of the month.  “That’s where money comes from”, I tried to convince myself.  You have to work hard to get somewhere in life.  I always knew that this wasn’t true, but I had to convince myself to be able to go forward in... Read more...

For all the years of my life I have been a workaholic & thought that this would produce my hoped for results in the long run, not realizing at the time,  that this would be to the detriment of both my family life as well as my health. What a sacrifice! Now in my latter years, I realize that I underestimated myself & my capabilities, Read more...

Ek is nou net oor die vyftig en was totdusver min of meer tevrede met my lewe. Ek het 'n wonderlike vrou en drie pragtige dogters. Verder het ek 'n goeie werk wat my darem so nou en dan stimuleer en die pot aan die kook hou. Daar kom egter ook dae wat ek teen Read more...
