REPLAY: Overcome disappointments. Rise above challenges.
It is not the challenges we face that limits our success, it is how we respond to them. It isn’t even the (normal) negative thoughts and emotions that keep us from succeeding. It is how we choose to respond to them that matters.

Engage your thoughts and feelings from this point of view: “Does this belief/emotion move me toward or away from my values and goals?”
If you struggle to control your thoughts and feelings, you cannot focus on your performance actions to be successful.
How can you be willing to experience the adversity in service of your goals?
