"You can learn a lot from suffering. Remember, in the ash of suffering a phoenix can be born." ―Professor M.S. Rao
When you fail in accomplishing your aspirations and expectations you get disappointed. Disappointments are quite common in life. You must know how to deal with them effectively. When you have long-term goals, you don't bother for disappointments. Everything happens for a reason. I failed many times in my life. I was rejected many times. Harvard rejected my application for a postdoctoral course in 2016. I was unmoved. I keep moving forward. Life is never a straight line. It is full of peaks and valleys. Take feedback. Get back to action. Identify the barriers and remove them. Explore options to fulfill your expectations and aspirations. Set realistic goals and objectives. Don't give up. Be consistent in your efforts. Be persistent. It is not intelligent but the persistent will succeed in the end.
Disappointments are temporary. Understand what you can control and what you cannot control. Focus on what you can control in life. Life is a journey. It is full of good times and bad times. Don’t get excited when you accomplish your goals and don’t get dejected when you encounter failures. Stay level headed.
My life is full of setbacks, disappointments, and failures. When you want to achieve big, you encounter lots of disappointments. It is great news because your dreams are bigger, your goals are bigger and your courage is higher. So, don't treat them as disappointments. Treat them as experiments. Try again.
Takeaway: Treat disappointments as learning experiences. There are only experiments, no disappointments.
“There are no disappointments in life, only experiments.” ―Professor M.S. Rao
