Episode #71 – Recovering From a Setback – Do you Spring Forward or Fall Behind?

How do we react to setbacks or disappointments in our lives – do we spring forward or fall back?

Everybody has setbacks – trying to avoid them is useless. In fact, the bigger you play in life, the more often you’ll experience them.

Instead of letting yours drag you down, learn about the magic of transforming them into opportunities to get everything you want (and more).

In this episode, you’ll learn how to spring forward when setbacks happen in your life, including a proven method to get back to your A-game quickly.

Show highlights include:

  • Why “dust yourself off, keep going” is bad advice—and how to use self-care to make recovery more fun and more effective. ([4:10])
  • 2 questions to ask yourself to reverse any setback and turn it into an opportunity. ([8:45])
  • How to channel your “a-game” by changing tiny details in your life. ([13:00])
  • The most important decision you need to make when a setback happens to you. ([19:15])
