Learning to deal with setbacks and failures is something we can always improve on. In this interview with Marie Forleo, Cathy Collaut discusses her 4-step system to overcoming devastating setbacks and the kinds of conclusions that are appropriate and inappropriate to draw, as a result of them.
Here is an overview of the 4 Steps:
Step #1 – You must learn to deal with setbacks and failures with clarity, constancy, and confidence, if you’re going to live a life worth living.
Step #2 – Successful people fail just as often, if not more, than unsuccessful people. How you respond to failure is what’s important.
Step #3 – Celebrate the effort, not the result. Genuinely applaud yourself for trying.
Step #4 – Don’t let specific failures become global; confine your conclusions to this specific “try”.
