Setbacks and Adversity

Setbacks and adversity provide an opportunity for individuals to continue to learn and develop.

Failures are opportunities to correct mistakes, try new approaches, and move in a new direction.

If not handled properly, setbacks and adversity can prevent you from moving forward, and even regress your personal development and chosen career path. Regardless of how difficult life may be at any given time, you must keep moving forward toward your goals, and try to improve your work, training, and function every day.


When things go wrong, it’s easy to get discouraged and start feeling as if there’s no point to moving forward. When you get depressed, it becomes much harder to work, socialize, see small improvements, or to deal with everyday problems and frustrations.

Accomplishing great things in life is a product of hard work, dedication, and consistency, but never underestimate the power of surrounding yourself with a supporting cast that will encourage the right attitude. Remember, “this too shall pass.”

Setbacks and adversity often present the best opportunities for learning. People learn by experimenting and making mistakes. Failing to make mistakes will impede your progress because mistakes are an inherent part of taking risks.
