Setbacks to Success

Setbacks Are Not The End
I was writing an article the other day and I came up with this line. I found it pretty inspiring and I wanted to share it here with you. Let your setbacks become a springboard for your comeback
Setbacks are common in life, but wallowing in misery that the setback has brought you would only make things worse. Instead use the setback as a springboard for your success. 
Emotions Are Energy
Setbacks always leave us with anger, resentment or hurt. Allow the anger and the disappointment within you to create something that makes heads turn, ears perk up and eyes widen with astonishment. 
The energy that could be wasted in negative emotions which make you feel even worse than before need to be converted into positive energy.  This energy when put into action can bring out the best in you. 
Rise Above Your Emotions
Prove the world wrong by rising above the situation.  Do whatever you do in the best, in the way you can. Let your work rest, look at it again, you may see the flaws in your work, correct them. 
You may come up with new and better ideas to do what you have done. Don't be afraid to redo the work if you have too. Work until the the dullness wears off and the work is illuminated with the brilliance of your effort.
Become The One You Want to Be
 You cannot become the one you want to be by being who you are now.  Let the anger and the disappointment drive your comeback. Become the one you have always wanted to be. Change is the way to growth. 
Commitment is the strength that can keep you in your track to reach the goal. Never let it go out of sight. If you have to write your goal on a placard and put it on your desk to remind you do so. If you have to have the text running on your phone each time you look at it make it your wallpaper. Do what it takes to remain committed to your objective. 
Drive Away The Doubts and Fear
Do not entertain the lies and the doubts that stealthily enter your mind. Drive them out with the purpose that is now in your heart, to prove your worth.  Challenge every doubt and see if it holds water, test it against your past achievements. Remember that there is always a first time. Do not fear the outcome. give it your best shot. 
Do not let the setback push you to the edge,  take control of yourself. Do not allow your emotions take the reigns. Emotions are there for a purpose, let them serve their purpose. To make you what you ought to be
Let your emotions become your ally not your enemy. It is not enough to ensure that there are no distractions. It is more important to work as one, thoughts, emotions and action.
