3 Simple Ways to Deal with Failure

by admin on October 26, 2012

Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective. It is commonly viewed as the opposite of success. We all have seen it. Failure is inevitable. You can’t run from it. Failure brings back bad memories. There is not a single person on the face of earth who has not seen failure.

From how I look at it, here are 3 ways to handle any kind of failure in life:

Change Your Beliefs about Failure

You must change your false beliefs about failure and apply new beliefs. You must understand that failure is just a way that lets you find your mistakes. If you’ve royally screwed up, chances are you won’t do again what you did wrong, and that’s an excellent thing. You must also be aware that success is a matter of failing many times until you find out what works.

Learn From Your Defeats

Failure offers us the greatest chance to improve ourselves. Learn how to prevent the same thing from happening again. There is a saying I often hear quoted “failure is not falling down, buts it’s the refusing to get back up”.


Do a post-mortem and discover what actually your mistake is. Is it possible to avoid it? Find out how you can work smarter to avoid making the same mistakes.

Successful people re-look and change their strategy whenever they experience ‘failure’. They understand that failure is feedback. Understand this principle and you will avoid failure and achieve success in no time at all.
