1. Accept your setbacks but don’t resign to them. The quicker you accept, the quicker you’ll move on. Your setback could be a setup for more incredible things ahead of you.

2. Reset by visualizing yourself accomplishing a new and fulfilling purpose. Cultivate an earnest desire to see it through. It’s important to learn from your past and move forward.

3. Strategize to get there. A vision without a strategy remains an illusion. Work on the plan with renewed vigor.

4. Learn new skill sets and increase your competencies to match your purpose. The greater the competence, the greater the confidence.

5. Meanwhile, seek counsel/coaching for your struggles or pain, if any. Be open to discovering new insights and uncovering blind spots.

6. Conquer your fears and apprehensions. It may take time to get out of your setbacks, but courage and grit will get you there. Always remember, you did not fail; you learned a lesson.

7. The Secret Sauce – fill up daily with grace and strength from God. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
