How to deal with Setbacks?

1. Realize they're temporary.
Every successful person has encountered setbacks, learning what doesn't work is an essential part of learning what does! Setbacks are a sign that you're making progress. Remember: God's delays are not God's denial.

2. Recommit to your goals.

If you truly want to succeed, banish all thoughts of giving up before you accomplish your objective. Be willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, within legal and ethical bounds. You will get there eventually.

3. Contact some positive colleagues.

Positive emotions are contagious, so this is a great time to reconnect with people who believe in themselves and believe in you. Give positive encouragement to others and they'll return the favor. Get energized together! 4.

Reset your timetable.

You may not be achieving success as quickly as you'd hoped, but success generally comes one small step at a time. This is a great time to "retrench" and think through what you might do differently to achieve your goals.

5. Take action today.

Pursuing success is like riding a horse; if you get thrown off, you've got to get right back on it. Rather than dwell on the setback, take some action--right now--that will continue your momentum.

6. Have a Positive Attitude

In all of your jobs, believe in yourself. Expect that you will do well at your job. Employers and coworkers enjoy working with people with a "can-do" attitude.

7. Watch and Learn

Speak and act in a professional manner. Find people at work who you see are doing well. Observe them. How do they dress? How do they communicate with coworkers? How do they interact with bosses? What are their work behaviors? What skills do they use?

How to make a powerful first impression?

1. Be confident and outgoing.
When a person realizes someone has those qualities, they find them easier to talk with and much more welcoming. Maybe if you are in junior high, shaking hands may not be the thing to do, but for anyone else, shake hands.

2. Relax.
Posture is very important, but you don't want to look like a robot, either. Sit up straight, but don't be so rigid that you'd fall over if pushed. It's like when people say that an animal can smell your fear; people can tell if you're nervous. Just be yourself. Don't try to impress someone, let your real personality do the work.

Especially when first meeting someone. It's not necessary to show your teeth, just a meaningful grin will do. Be careful not to transition from a smile to a straight face too quickly, or people will sense you're being fake or that you don't like them. Make sure you let the other person speak too, there is nothing more people hate then someone who talks non-stop.

4. Make eye contact.

Stay focused on the person you are speaking with and certainly not on anything else to avoid them feeling unappreciated and unwanted. Often if the person has an eye problem, like an eye that turns in, you're put off by this. Instead, focus on the person's nose or mouth.

5. Never fidget.
Keep your hands to your side or in your lap. Never bite your fingernails, twirl your hair or crumple a napkin in your hand. Remember to never over do it though or you may look boastful and spoilt.

When it's time to move beyond the handshake stage, simple conversational skills are the key to a successful first meeting

Beyond body language and conversational skills, the actual tone of your voice is an important part of the impression you create,

8. Express yourself. Choose accessories that bring in your personality. If you have a vibrant, lively personality, let it show through in your accessories. A colorful or elaborate hat for special occasions, a special pin or scarf, or for gentlemen, a favorite tie or cufflinks can make the difference between a me-too business or personal outfit and a Just Me outfit that makes you stand out from the crowd. Celebrate your personality and individual style in your accessories, and youll be better dressed! 9. Have a sense of humor.
People who try to be funny are NOT funny. Truly funny people are just themselves and the wittiness shows. Don't use lame jokes or lines
