Move Past Disappointment

You don’t need to be perfect. You just need to keep going, knowing that your desire for better than this is enough. Your desire for more than this means that you are capable of more. It means you are worthy of more.

You are not your past actions, not your failed attempts. There will be plenty more days of disappointment and loss—that that needn’t discourage you. Let it reassure you that this experience is normal. Expected. Part of the game.

Disappointment doesn’t mean anything. It’s a feeling, and it’s fleeting–it comes, it goes, it passes. Let it pass quickly.


  • Start today—start right now—anew. Focus on the present. It’s real, it’s changeable, controlable, powerful.
  • Present focus is indelibly more powerful than the actions of yesterday. What you focus on this moment determines future outcomes. It changes the trajectory of your day. There are two sides to every coin. Focus on the other side. Focus on the best that still exists despite the disappointments. Focus on your best that still exists. Focus on the best possibility to achieve the best possible outcome.

    “Your Focus determines your feelings
    Your Feelings determine your function
    Your Function determines your future”
