Have you ever thought you matured in a specific area, only to fall flat when confronted with it again?
How disappointed were you with yourself? How quickly did you recover? How did you grow from that experience?
A "lessons learned" can serve as your most valuable asset when it comes to creating a strategy to ease your defeated emotions and help avoid future mistakes.
Consider using this as a template after each unpleasant experience.
- What was the situation?
- What were your emotions in the moment?
- How did you respond?
- How would you have liked to respond?
- What stopped you from responding that way?
- What can you do different in the future?
By answering these questions, you shift negative thoughts to action-based thoughts as you prepare for a successful future.
