Life aint easy. Its what grandma said and contains more than a bit of truth. All the effort in the world, the most positive attitude, the most careful preparation isnt going to spare you from disappointment. You will try and try and try, and still things wont work out. And it seems to be a basic universal law that every disappointment weighs more than every success. What may seem equal, the joy of getting the job v. the shattered hope of failing, is disproportionate. Disappointment overwhelms. And yet, while attitude will not spare you from disappointment, it will help you cope, and to keep a sense of perspective. With any disappointment, you are still here to be disappointed. It didnt kill you. You get to move on and try again. The best of us will take disappointment as a driver, the least of us as a dead-end. Only our choices make the difference.
