Stepping Stone

We all know that failures are Stepping Stones to Success. Failure is one of the toughest things to deal with and happens so frequently in life, on various levels, that learning to deal with it can aid how we approach all types of Endeavour. No one likes experiencing failure, but every attempted goal includes the possibility of failure as well as that of success. To grow we much keep reaching out for these new experiences. Failure feels so bad because it directly affects our ego and sense of identity in relation to the world around us. Failure can make us feel ineffective, inadequate and isolated. But this stage of failure is only temporary and will pass. Try to take advantage of a failure by analyzing what you could have done differently and rest assured that you will never sufferer the same failure again. If a failure was something unavoidable or beyond your control, perhaps you can attempt the project again with other collaborators. In either case, understanding our failures is a key component in dealing with them and being able to move on to new goals and projects.

Once you've taken a look at a failure and determined what you could or could not have done differently to alter the outcome, don't dwell on the issue. One of the most important parts of getting over failure is to move on to the next thing. Success breeds successful feeling people, so don't hesitate to go ahead with your next project or goal. Choose something that you are particularly knowledgeable or interested in and success will come all that much easier.
