Disappointment is temporary.
I feed my mind with thoughts that keep it from becoming fragile. Instead of crowding it with self-defeating contemplations, I train it to believe in silver linings. Even when I am disappointed, I know that the sun will shine on me again soon.
That knowledge and belief give me the motivation to move past unfortunate situations. At times, I feel upset by an outcome, but I refuse to allow that feeling to linger.
I have the power to rise above adversity. I maintain confidence in my ability to start again and be successful. I am rarely slowed down by disappointing circumstances.
When I lose out on a job opportunity to another candidate, I see that as a sign to accept that my true blessing is still on its way. I exercise patience. I continue to take inspired action toward my goals until my reward arrives.
I curb disappointment by focusing on the great things in my life. When I look at my many blessings, I immediately lose the urge to feel bad for myself.
There is so much joy in my life because I have the support and love of family and friends. They reassure me that, even in the most difficult times, there is a promise of healing and fulfillment for me down the road.
Whenever I feel disappointed, I take a few moments to find the blessings from the experience. There is always something to be grateful for.
Today, faith and motivation trump disappointment in my life. I know that any negative state of mind is temporary as long as I believe wholeheartedly in myself.
