How to deal with Setbacks..

Nobody set life was easy.. so learn to embrace your setbacks.

When you have a problem– in love, work or any other area of life – you want to get rid of it as quickly as you can. That’s the whole point about problems, surely? But a long tradition in philosophy and psychology, reaching back to ancient Rome, urges another perspective – instead of simply trying to banish our hardships, we should look at them more closely, perhaps even with an attitude of friendliness, because the solution lies hidden within. Or, as the Roman emperor and philosopher Marcus Aurelius put it: ‘What stands in the way becomes the way.’ Step one is finding the courage to face reality. Step two is to look more closely at the problem.

Step three know that your problem today or now will seem less as time goes on and will for sure be replaced with another!
