The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.
~ Robert Kiyosaki
You will not get happiness without experiencing sadness nor will you find peace without first experiencing turmoil. Your joy to see the sun come out is because you experienced the cold, grey thunderstorm. Throughout your life, you’ll be faced with many disappointments. Perhaps you’re dealing with a disappointment right now. Whether someone you trusted and loved let you down, whether something in your work or business didn’t go right, whether your life isn’t where you want it to be – Disappointment is not an easy thing to face, but standing strong in the face of disappointment and picking yourself up afterwards is crucial to living a good life. Excitement is what gets you through the daily routine. After all, if you’re excited about what the next day will bring, you will keep on living. You won’t give up. Sure, you may get disappointed. But life is an adventure. You never know what will happen tomorrow or the day after that. That’s pretty exciting, don’t you think? And, instead of relying on others to make your life exciting, rely on yourself. You are the only person you know will always be there, no matter what. Remember, consistency is the evidence of belief. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.
Don’t let today’s disappointments cast a shadow on tomorrow’s dreams.
