In life, we experience both fun and not so fun times whether we’re actively achieving goals or not. So when you’re trying to pursue your set goals and you’re in a not so fun situation, you also get a negative feeling and it can be sadness, worry, or despair. Whichever it is, here are the things that I suggest you do in order to get over this bad feeling.
First, as with all things, feel it. Be in that situation and feel that emotion. If you should feel happiness, then you should do the same for negative emotions. The reason is so that you will better understand what it’s like. In addition to that, you will also gain a better understanding of the more positive emotions if you get what it’s like to feel sadness, despair, or worry.Next, find out why it happened. Search through your journal if you have one, or try to remember what you did and sort of rewind what happened in your mind. Once you found the reason why it happened, you can proceed to the next step. And the next step is…it will be revealed on the next update of Goal Setting: Feeling Bad! 😉
