Disappointment is part of life. Sometimes there's no way to escape it. But, even when you're feeling disappointment, there's still ways to gain more confidence. Here are ways confident women shake off disappointment.
1) You, as a confident woman, put yourself on a deadline to feel disappointed. You don't allow yourself to wallow in it. And you don’t give it more power than necessary.
2) If you're not careful then you can make yourself believe that your disappointment is bigger than what it really is. For example, if you say," This is the worst thing." Or, "I'm never going to succeed." Then you’re priming your brain to believe these untruths.
3) Gain perspective of what disappointment is and isn't. Disappointment is a temporary setback not a permanent loss.
