In the industry of public relations, dealing with setbacks and disappointments comes with the profession. It’s part of the trials and triumphs of pushing through challenges. I had to learn early in my career that setbacks and disappointments are means of moving forward. I had to understand, not to take the situation so personally. Instead, use each setback and disappointment as a footprint to lateral progression. We have to be able to adjust and accept changes. Everything is not going to go as planned. We have to take every situation as a learned experience. My advice in handling setbacks and disappointments is to always stay positive, be focused on the main goal, and always have an open mind and be optimistic in the situation. Lastly, embrace setbacks and disappointments, its part of the change for the better.
