Don't allow setbacks to set the agenda for you. If you do, then you haven't yet learned to develop the resolve to stick to your plans for success. When you face an inevitable disappointment, learn from it. Find a way around it, over it, under it, or through it. Don't passively accept defeat. When you react with passivity or defeatism, you weaken your ability to do something positive instead. If you learn from your setbacks, however, you set yourself up to handle similar situations differently in the future. You'll grow and learn to face challenges with confidence and positivity.
