I had a professional setback a few weeks ago.
After months of preparation, one of my professional goals didn’t come to fruition the way I was hoping and honestly, it was difficult and frustrating to process. It’s moments like these that I, like many of us millennials are tempted to throw in the towel. Tempted to pull the plug, switch gears, change directions. It’s even tempted to make big life decisions when we don’t get our way or something becomes too difficult, because that’s just easier than processing a no, or persevering through the challenge and trying again.
