It’s Not You… It’s
The first thing you need to realize with these flops is that
it’s not your fault. You didn’t do anything wrong. The blame is all on the
other party. They didn’t follow through with their promise, their effort, or
whatever it is they should have been doing. It happens. It’s not a fun
experience by any stretch of the imagination, but it happens. The faster you
can accept that and move on, the better in the long run.
Things change, people change, and unforeseen issues pop up.
It happens, but no matter what or why it happens, the blame does not lay with
you. It may or may not be the fault of the other party, but remember. It’s not
you… it’s them.
Don’t Let Doubt Creep
It’s easy to feel like the failure is your fault. It’s easy
to let doubt about yourself, your abilities, and your products creep in. Don’t
let this flop, and the failure of someone else to take action and do the right
thing undermine your self-confidence.
You’ve worked hard and are close to reaching your goals.
Yes, a flop can be a setback and make it harder to get to where you want to be.
But that doesn’t take away from everything you’ve accomplished. Don’t second
guess what you’re doing. Don’t doubt yourself and your abilities. You will find
another way to get to where you want to be.
Look On The Bright
Side – There Always Is One
The most important thing I want you to take away is that
there’s always something positive to be found in every single flop. It may not
be all roses and sunshine when things don’t work out, but when you look hard
enough, you can find something good that came from the situation.
Maybe the other person feels bad about letting you down and
now owes you a big favor. Maybe you meet someone else in the meantime that can
help you reach your goals even faster. Maybe you simply become more
self-reliant. If you look long and hard enough, you will find something
positive coming out of every single flop. Start looking.
