When things become difficult or we experience a setback in our businesses, the easiest thing to do is to pull back and retreat. Allowing ourselves to recover is important. Remember to keep any sense of over-reaction to a minimum. Four things you can do when overcoming a setback
Determine What Really Happened Sometimes it’s easy to create drama and add unnecessary detail to the setback or failure.
Ask For An Outside Opinion Talk to a friend, a spouse, or a trusted confidant. If you need an unbiased opinion, talk to a professional such as a coach.
Decide to Move On This is active decision that comes after you’ve processed the failure. Put the failure behind and actively move forward.
Develop a plan to get back on track This is the hardest part, but the most important. The longer you retreat from your company and your responsibilities, the harder it is to come back.
