Disappointment happens to everyone, including me, and it can come when you least expect it.
Disappointment was the theme of our vacation. The spa hotel we stayed at was a five star six months ago and it is now a one star. Everywhere we turned, disappointment ran rampant (food, room, pool, spa, staff).
Did it ruin our vacation? Were we unable to rest and relax?
No! Sure, we were disappointed and at times were feeling ill but we coined it the Twilight Zone vacation. Neither one of us had to work (or even think about work) and we spent every minute together. It was bliss.
What’s your reaction when you encounter disappointment? Do you freak out or do you roll with it?
Read the quote above and remind yourself that in order to achieve real greatness, you need to go through disappointments and failures.
Only when you have gone through the deepest valleys can you possibly relish in the astounding beauty atop the highest peak.
