Failing is never final until you accept it as a reality. Do not allow the failure of something to define you and stay permanent…
Failure is a part of life
Life is full of many obstacles and many a time these obstacles require repeated attempts to overcome. Without failure, life would simply be, a failure. Failing or failure allows us to grow as individuals and learn from our mistakes. Going forward in the future it helps us attack that same facet in a more intelligent way, yielding success. If we were to go through life without failing at anything then guess what? We would never achieve ANYTHING.
So, how do I deal with failure…?
There are many ways to deal with failure, but first and foremost is to not allow failure to stop you in your tracks. Never let failure make you quit at something (for good) otherwise it will be come permanent.
Here are some tips to deal with failure on an emotional and physical level
- Learn from your mistakes – The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again expecting a successful outcome. Failing at something allows us to determine what we did wrong and what can be improved for next time. Observe how you handed a certain failed situation and look at what you could do differently next time. Over time this persistent assessment will bring success and teach you many things about life, and yourself
- Pick yourself straight back up – The best thing you can do after failing at something is to get back up and try, try again. Its important not to dwell on something which has gone wrong (although brief periods of reflection are essential) as it can lead to depression (which I will talk about it another article). Dust yourself off, get up, and NEVER GIVE UP!
- Realise it is building your character and passion – When you fail at something, it can either make you more hungry to achieve it in the future, or demoralised; both are great character building traits. Firstly with regards to your passion; failure can make you more hungry and help you realise your true passion. The repeated failures may allow you to build a solid will, and in the process realise your true heartfelt passion. And then being demoralised. Sure it can hurt, and you may quit. But those dark moments are when all the work is done, those moments are the times no one see’s, they can just speculate whilst you at standing these, with your hand raised, successful.
I hope you enjoyed the article – remember.. never give up!
