Setbacks Lead to Stronger Comebacks

Setbacks Lead to Stronger Comebacks




W.h.o. doesn't love a great comeback story? Hollywood does. So does the sports world. There are also many examples where individuals overcame incredible setbacks and are better and stronger.

Personally, in every difficult situation or adversity, I have been through, I recovered, stronger, wiser, more resilient and able t.o take on whatever happened next.

Here are some situations/events that are considered amongst the greatest comebacks:

Abraham Lincoln
Lincoln grew up in meagre circumstances, failed at business twice and had what most considered a nervous breakdown. He lost when he ran for Congress, lost twice when he ran for the Senate and lost as a vice-presidential candidate. He then went on t.o be elected the sixteenth president of the United States

The Boston Red Sox
They won the very first World Series and won four more "". However, they did not win another world championship for eighty- years! In the "2004" ALCS , they lost the first three games against the New York Yankees. No team had come back from such a deficit. But they did and then beat the St. Louis Cardinals in four games straight!

The Buffalo Bills
They recovered from a thirty-two-point deficit against the Houston Oilers in "93" and won the game in overtime. It was considered the greatest postseason comeback professional football has ever seen.

The Cleveland Cavaliers
They are the first NBA team t.o overcome a three game to zero deficit and win the championship. It was also the first major sports championship any Cleveland sports team had won since 64.

Robert Downey Jr
He had great success at an early age including an Academy Award nomination for the film, Chaplin. He then was arrested numerous times on drug-related charges. He was on probation, served jail time and court-ordered drug rehabilitation. After five years of setbacks, he decided t.o have a comeback and successfully started in the Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes franchises and has become one of the most popular actors in Hollywood.

Have you been through a comeback? How did you get through it?
Are there stories of other triumphs that have inspired you?

To most of us mortal ones, a good setback is a real learning experience, these are easy to remember and not go that route again.
Good thought post for a cool Georgia night... Be warm and safe..

I've had many setbacks and I feel that I am currently making a comeback of my own.
It's a comeback that is relevant to me.

Sometimes a person needs setbacks to help fuel a renaissance.

I saw the meme and it sparked the thoughts so I did some researched to support the words. Here we are being teased with glimmers of spring but I hate the constant cycle of melting and re-freezing. It's amazing how much the snowbanks have shrunk which does not disappoint me.
