Everyone has experienced failure in their lives whether it be a failed relationship, marriage, examination, business, or interview and this failure can be a crushing experience. The one thing that separates successful people from the rest is how they respond after they failed.
When faced with challenges, you must decide if you are going to let them be the excuse for your failure or if you are going to make them the story behind your success.
Even if the past did not go as you had hoped, your future can still be better than you have envisioned. The only true failure is doing nothing which puts you at risk. When you do nothing, it means you are not moving anywhere. It is the fear of failure that keeps you from doing nothing.
Like all fears. You conquer it by facing it head-on and when the fear of doing nothing exceeds the fear of doing it wrongly, that is when your true work begins.
Strength does not come from what you can do, it comes from mastering the things you once thought you could not do. What you do every day matters more than what you do occasionally. What are the things you like about yourself or the traits that make you? You are intelligent, hardworking, kind, and sincere, see yourself through these lenses and not through the lens of failure.
Never see starting over again as a setback whenever you fail instead see it as an exciting opportunity. Failure means you tried something that did not work so you can try something new or different. It is the perfect opportunity to reinvent yourself and create something different.
The important thing is to ask yourself how you can learn from your failure, listen to feedback, and try innovative ideas. While failure feels bad you can end up on top with the right attitude by accepting your mistakes and learning how to approach challenges differently.
