Listen to the episode:


No one likes dealing with disappointments. In fact, most of us will do almost anything to avoid disappointment. We hate the idea of what our disappointments might say about who we are and what we do. We’ll avoid things that help us grow our business, like being visible or connecting with people that might help us grow our business. The truth is, the reason we do is we’re so afraid that maybe someone is going to see past who we say we are.

But the truth is, is that disappointments in business and in life are inevitable. They actually happen every single day. And the more we can learn to embrace our disappointments as a natural part of our business growth and future, the better we’re able to rebound and move forward in ways that might be even better than what we thought possible.
