When Things Don’t Go As Planned

May 5, 2023

Are you having communication breakdowns, technology glitches, or travel mishaps? It might all be a coincidence or it might be Mercury in Retrograde.

I know I am… and it happens to all of us!

Whether you believe in the Mercury-in-retrograde-thing or not, when things start going wrong, it can feel like we are acting as a human magnet for problems and disappointments. 

So how do you course correct when things aren’t going as planned?

1. Acknowledge your feelings. 
Allow yourself to feel sad or disappointed, just don’t dwell on it too long. Setbacks are a part of life and business. 

2. Reframe the situation.
Instead of seeing this as a failure, think of it as an opportunity to learn and grow. Or at the very least, it might turn into a funny story later. 

3. Focus on what IS working. 
This can help boost your confidence and remind you of your value as a human. 

4. Take care of yourself.
Do something that makes you happy or relaxes you.

5. Keep moving forward.
Remember that setbacks and failures are a part of the journey toward success.

Happy Wednesday!
