Disappointment: The feeling of sadness or displeasure caused by the non-fulfillment of one’s hopes or expectations.
While speaking to clients this week, the word ‘disappointment’ reared its head on several occasions.
“I am disappointed that I only lost 3/4 of pound this week.”
“I am disappointed in myself; I gave into the Cannoli.”
We talked our way through the disappointment, straight to elation and then to a more balanced and measured place – The Middle Path.
The Middle Path or The Middle Way is the path of moderation; the path between extremes.
For those who are feeling disappointed, here are 4 “Disappointing” Quotes that may help you find your way to The Middle Path. I am particularly enamored with the last quote. I think it powerfully speaks to weight loss, hitting the nail on the disappointing head!
“The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.” – Robert Kiyosaki quotes
“Disappointments are to the soul what the thunder-storm is to the air.” – Friedrich von Schiller
“If I had my way, if I was lucky enough, if I could be on the brink my entire life – that great sense of expectation and excitement without the disappointment – that would be the perfect state.” – Cate Blanchett
“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.” – Jim Rohn
