How have you most constructively dealt with disappointment and turned it into a learning experience

When I have encountered a setback in my career, I always give myself time to deal with the disappointment and reflect upon the circumstances, figuring out why it happened.

Thereafter, I focus upon moving forward, the positive steps necessary to recover even if at times it does not always feel like there is anything positive about the situation but there always is.

I take into account, what I have learnt from the disappointment, what it taught me about work or the sector/industry.

All these events help to offer me a new perspective on my career. There are always benefits to consider, and this serves to help recover from the disappointment and see beyond it.

Being an optimistic person, at work and in life, I look at my past achievements reassure myself with the knowledge of how well I have performed in my career up until that point

Once I have come to terms with a particular disappointment, I think about the future, seeking career advice from a mentor thus allowing an experienced person to help with my career development, using the disappointment as a focus for change.
