To do great things, we need to love both. We need to be able to endure tragedy and setbacks…and endure them well.
If we say that we love what we do, that means that we need to love all that it entails. Not just the perks of the job, but also the occupational hazards.
Let go of your expectations and accept what happens to you. Soon, you will realize that there are just some things outside your control. But, there are plenty of other things that are very much within your control: namely, how you choose to react. It also helps if you think about ‘next steps’ in terms of what you get to do instead of what you must do.
It’s life. It happens. Might as well have a good attitude about it.
