How many times in your life have you been disappointed? Can you count those moments on one hand, or maybe two? I know for me, even if I used all my fingers, toes, and each extremity, I still wouldn't be able to keep track of the number of disappointments that I have faced in my life. It's amazing how each circumstance in our lives has the opportunity to mold and make us into who we are now...good, bad, or indifferent. We have the choice of whether our failures and less than opportunistic moments in our lives will drag us down or make us stronger, more confident people. So here in lies the question. Is disappointment a motivator? I know for me, in the past, disappointment has been something that brings me down and makes me want to throw in the towel. I have learned something through this distorted way of thinking. The only person that can change your view on disappointment is you. Only you can allow disappointment to be a motivator, not a deal-breaker. Make a choice today to be a more motivated, less disappointed you.
