Weathering a Storm of No’s

Recently, I experienced a series of work-related setbacks and I took it hard. But then I got my revenge, by writing an article about the experience that got published today in Forbes!! PLEASE check it out and let me know what you think.

    Wonderful article, Wendy! EVERYBODY can get something useful from this, whether the setbacks are job/career-related or not. Even those without explicit difficulties or complications can benefit from the reminder to practice gratitude. As always, you are spot on!

    Excellent article, Wendy. Wonderful you, for turning things around…and for reminding the rest of us to do the same, regardless of the challenge/opportunity.

      I spoke to a client today (with a thriving, successful career), who was going through a series of his own setbacks. And he asked (not knowing about the Forbes article), do you have any suggestions as to how to deal with this?

    Congratulations, Wendy. Emotional resilience is such an important skill that I am trying to strengthen. Thanks for sharing.

      I need to strengthen it myself – again and again and again. But I draw daily strength and inspiration from all of you!!!
