Disappointments happen. But sometimes they lead to equivalent or greater opportunities. We’ve all seen this play out before. Because there’s no way to know it won’t happen the same way this time, why not embrace the possibility with a hopeful attitude?
Instead of letting disappointment about something gone wrong get you down consider it as the one necessary step backwards in order to take two or three steps forwards. Don’t let your mind rush to a negative judgment. Instead, allow some time to let the chain of cause and effect play out. In the meanwhile, if negative judgments keep popping into your mind, play devil’s advocate with them (which is more like “angel’s advocate” in this context) by observing that crisis breed opportunity.
Be mindful of the possibility that things going against you are happening just to turn you around so you're heading in the right direction, again.
