The Serenity Prayer works wonders for me: 

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

I'm with Susan Emo  I had a family tragedy back in 2011 and I could do nothing but stare into space or get back up.  The serenity prayer was the only thing that I could wrap my mind around

Zombie targets.   3:)

Give yourself permission to be hurt, pissed off, indignant, disgusted, depressed and miserable. 1 HOUR. Then go do something physical or something that 'gets you out of mind' . . . and finally, overwrite your inner programming with so much gratitude for what is good in your life that the experience will dissipate. Itemize that list and be specific.

Also remember, Rejection Is Protection.

Nothing you didn't get is right for you anyway. Love what you have.

I try to remember everything is situational. Sometimes I can control outcomes, and sometimes not. I have a tendency to beat myself up first, so have to step back and think to see if I could have done something differently.

It depends on what happened and how major it was. If the let down was due to someone else, I deal with it differently and get over it much faster than if it was due to something I did and should have been able to control. If it was due to someone else, either lunch with a good friend to complain to or some retail therapy can do the trick. If it was due to me, I beat myself up and usually start cleaning the house to take out my anger and hostility since I am not fit company to be around when i get like that.

Michael Jordan missed 12,345 shots he took in his career, and is considered the greatest basketball player of all time. We all get let down one time or another, but it is what you do afterwards that tells you what kind of person you are. If Jordan stopped shooting after he missed his first shot, then he wouldn't have become the greatest. This is what I think about if I miss a shot.
