What is your disappointment recovery time? And by that I mean, how long does it take you to get back up when you’ve been knocked down?

Growing up, being rejected, being let go from jobs, friendships, interviews, whatever would sting me to my core. As time went on and life continued, the more of these setbacks and knock backs I had, I soon started noticing that I was recovering a lot quicker. Words and situations that would have devastated me before, seemed trivial.

What would have destroyed my confidence before was now just a blip. My disappointment recovery time had shortened. My self-belief to overcome had solidified.

So what’s my point?

If you feel like life is throwing a lot at you now, or has thrown a lot at you in the past, trust that its building an inner strength in you. It’s helping you grow an inner resilience to glide past trivial issues, and to bounce up faster and higher than you ever could have when things get tough. It’s preparing you for a life of ease, when you don’t sweat the small stuff (and it is ALL small stuff!)


As Tony Robbins says, what if life happens for you, not to you? What if everything you have experienced or are experiencing is training you to be the person you were meant to be, to do the thing you’re here to do Whatever you’re dealing with right now is preparing you for the greatness to come.
