The Year of a Mindful Career: Setbacks Are Welcome

You might not think about hanging up this shingle at your workplace:

“Setbacks Are Welcome.”

But every success story has its setbacks.

  • Elvis Presley was told to go back to truck driving because he didn’t have talent.
  • W. Woolworth was told that he didn’t know how to serve a customer.
  • Abraham Lincoln failed in business and politics numerous times.
  • J. K. Rowling survived on welfare and faced numerous literary rejections.

You get the point. Setbacks are stepping-stones to success. Please don’t throw in the towel. Go for broke even if it means running on empty for a little while.

Personal Challenge: Can you welcome setbacks?
