Today’s Affirmations

Disappointment fuels my drive to improve.

I accept that life’s experiences sometimes come with disappointment.

I know that not every situation has the desired outcome, but I also know how to deal with those undesirable occurrences.

When I am disappointed, I avoid allowing the feelings to consume me.

I know that every disappointment happens for a reason, even if I don’t see it right away. I take a moment to assess what happened and try to find a positive message out of it.

When things don’t go my way, I feel motivated to improve so I can reap success the next time around. I look for things that I could do differently to avoid experiencing the same disappointment two times in a row.

If I submit a project at work that doesn’t meet the requirements of my employer, I take it in stride. I try to accept that even with the best effort, there is always room for me to do better. I use the opportunity to work on improving my output so the outcome is more favorable next time.

In cases where my expectations of others go unmet, I avoid using that as an opportunity to judge.

I accept that people are imperfect and can make mistakes or bad choices that disappoint others.

Today, I focus on making the most of second chances.

I focus on using a lost first opportunity to make the most of the next one and improve the outcome. I commit to not allowing disappointment to conquer me and cause me to lose focus on my goals.

Answer These Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. How do I help others to cope with disappointment?
  2. Do I recognize my shortcomings that lead to disappointment?
  3. Am I able to resist the frustration that may come when I feel disappointment?
