It’s only natural that you feel disappointed if something doesn’t go as well as you planned. But try to look at it from a different angle. You may be going through a difficult time, but it is the period of change through which you generate something new. In this way of thinking, a seemingly deadlocked situation will foster the birth of epoch-making progress. With this in mind, you can find hope and courage in a time of struggle.
