How to handle the setbacks in life


    How often we have seen that even enthusiastic people get bogged down by setbacks. Setbacks are part of life but not everything. People tend to take it hurdles of life and start crawling towards success. I am sure you have faced many such setbacks. It may be financial, emotional or anything else. It may be a tough phase of life, but that cannot be called as hurdles. I feel setbacks are actually a motivation to achieve even more.

    Who creates Setbacks?

     Setbacks are not created by the circumstances but created by ourselves. It is the outcome of a poorly handled affair in the past or talking negative approach in life. When you are on a journey, you are bound to make some or the other mistake and life is just the exact reflection of that. You must be positive enough to take back the outcome of it. The real success mantra of life is to learn from the mistakes we have committed not to get upset because of it. The life is pretty simple and we make it complicated by allowing negative thoughts to rule our mind. You often get upset when something unexpected and terrible thing happens but that is not the right approach. If something that is beyond your control holding you to go further then you are actually holding for no reason. You can’t control everything, but you can handle whatever comes in your way. So, the setbacks are the real incidents that happen in our life, we just dig it and make it an issue.

    How to tackle setbacks

    The first thing that you have to keep in your mind is that it is not an obstruction. It is the self belief that is l required to overcome any setback in life. If you are confident enough to understand the situation and act accordingly then you would come over it even before you realize it. It is all in the mindset that holds you back. Once you make yourself clear then no situation is a setback and no setback is a hurdle. The positive frame of mind with the immense desire of achievement can bring down any negative thought that tickles your mind. All you need to know is that you have decided your path and nothing can stop you.

    Can setback be handled in other ways?

    I feel that everyone has the courage and ability to deal with any situation of life. However, if you are running out of confidence to deal with the situation then you can always divert your mind from that. If it is financial upset then you can involve yourself in initiatives or creativity. Taking some time out with friends and chalking out different plans for the future can help you to relax. If you are dealing with an emotional breakdown then taking few days off from work and set off for a vacation should be ideal.

    Even though this can help you to get settle down a bit but you have the utmost power to throw away everything once for all with your attitude. Always remember that none can keep you happy if you don’t want to be.
