      1st Answer Example

      "Experiencing a setback is always disappointing and can be a bit disheartening, but I understand that it happens occasionally. If I experience a major setback, I will take a few moments to debrief with my site manager and discuss what I could have done differently. Then, I move on."

      2nd Answer Example

      "Setbacks can be trying, but I find that you have to learn how to lose before you learn how to win. While I never enjoy a setback, I use them as a stepping-off point to something even better."

      "Setbacks motivate me to become the best version of myself and learn from my mistakes. Setbacks increase my motivation, dedication, and drive. My work becomes better when facing setbacks because I become more alert, self-driven, and humble. Setbacks are awesome because I love to learn from mistakes and want to maximize my potential."

      You showcase a lot of enthusiasm, which is terrific! I would recommend scaling it back a little bit (setbacks are not usually awesome....this may be a bit much) :) I have offered a slight reword, below.

      "Setbacks motivate me to become the best version of myself. When I encounter a setback, I use it to increase my motivation, dedication, and drive. My work often becomes better when facing a setback because I become more alert, self-driven, and humbled by the situation. Setbacks help me to learn from my mistakes and maximize my potential."

      "When I suffer a set back I believe that the disappointment I feel afterward is an indication to assess the situation which has involved the setback. By assessing and reflecting I can learn what could have been done differently to avoid the setback and take this forward in future behavior."
