Disappointment is not where you want to dwell. It's just an emotion letting you know that you need to refocus on what it is you do want. There may be a shift to make in your path to your dream or goal.
For me, disappointment can be from someone else telling me that I'm not doing something the right way. Or, I hear that I don't know what I'm doing.
As you can imagine, words like these can make a person want to throw in the towel. What helps when we're disappointed or discouraged? We need encouragement, like the crowd along a race route cheering on the runners. Like an "atta girl" or "atta boy" that comes from a friend or coworker.
Try this - Cheer Someone on Today
If you have had a block or a problem that slowed you down from finishing a project, reaching a goal, or making a difference, what helped you? Having someone cheering you on can make all the difference. This week, you can cheer someone else on with:
- A text
- An email
- A video
- A quick phone call
- A handwritten note or card
- A pat on the back, literally
Another idea is to cheer yourself on this week. Put a fun sticky note message on your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, computer monitor, and even the dash of your car!
