How Do You Deal With Failure?

There could be a  number of reasons why we experience failure in life. Our circumstances certainly influence how we do things and how we react to whatever comes our way.
Sometimes we find people brought up under the same circumstances or having the same training , same education, doing similar tasks differently. That’s why leaners in a school classroom, having been taught under the same conditions, doing the same material get different marks in the final examination.
It could be that our preparations are different.
We are expected to do what we don’t want to do.
We do things just because other people are doing them.
Our efforts are not the same. Some are hungrier than others.
The other thing is that it depends on how you fail. Did you fail by a big margin or did you miss the mark by by just a tiny point. How do you deal with the failure?

Hi David, I think I used to be number one in fearing failure, but since the day I realised that, failure is part of success, I have had to accept it as part of life, especially if one wants to succeed.

As Albert Einstein say “someone how Have never fail have never tried something new ”
And another quote say Fail means First Attempt In Learning.
So I also remember these two quotes.
When I fail, I get up and keep going until I reach my goals. It’s part of success. Those who succeed failled several times.

Failure in life is caused by many factors like diseases,if you are sick ,you cant do anything,lack of resources ,poor planning and the so called group energy vampires.
After analyzing the cause  of failure,you definitely work on real solutions by a voiding the bad energy vampires,reading motivation and encouragement books,you attend trainings like what we are doing now,and learning from previous mistakes.

Failure can be caused by a number of things such as poor planning, poor education and poor application.
I have failed many times because I did not absorb the education and I have been distracted by other things.
If you fail then just get up and try again.

Since I learnt that faillure is part of success and our lives. I consider fail as one step to away of the success. If fail I stay positive, question myself why I failed and try to understand the “Why “then,I stay focus and keep going forward. Sometimes things may seem impossible on your way but if you stay positive, determined and focus you can reach your goals.

Learn from it – failure will become less and less over time. You can never eradicate it but you can minimise it. Push yourself harder and harder to achieve. Turn it on its head and use it to motivate you

We all have bad days and weeks, when nothing seems not to go right, we all feel to achieve something important that we really wanted to have.
First we have to know that failure is part of the game. Whatever you try to achieve have this two inseparable sides. Either you succeed or You Fail. If you have this concept in your mind failure will not be a problem for you.
When you fail.what matter is to pick yourself up and move on. Recognize and accept your emotions, try to minimize Your feelings, or distract myself.
Don’t see a failure as personal,instead it is something you experience. It doesn’t change the real You.
Take the right amount of responsibility and use failure as a way to improve.

I learn from failure by asking myself how I got to that point, what brought me there, such that I should never repeat the same things. But all in all, I know that it’s one of those things I have meet on my way to success.

For me failure is part of the success, when i failed, i learn from it, take correctives actions and decisions, then try to focus more to keep moving forward. I know that the only thing that will make me to fail is when i stop trying.

Failure is part and parcel of an individual from childhood to adulthood and to elderlyhood.most successful business owners have history of failing,but turn the situation as an opportunity for learning and they succeed.

Just because you failed once it doesn’t mean that you will again. Failure is part of success we need to make mistakes in order to learn from them and form better plans to reach our goals. “If at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again.”

When it comes to tasks there are 2 outcomes Failure or Success. Don’t beat yourself up if you fall into the failure side. just keep trying and eventually you will end up with Success – its as simple as that

Good question. I also don’t know how to deal with failure? I failed so many times, and it made me sadder even more. Tell me, how to handle it well?

I think dwelling more on this question will intensify our attention on failure. Is that counterproductive to ourself? Why don’t we change the topic into how to deal with extraordinary success? Also, instead of asking what if it turns out into a total failure, why don’t we ask what if it turns out into an epic success? 
 
I think most of us have no idea what to think if an epic success suddenly comes to our life.

Adharad: Every failure is accompanied by its solution. You only need to see failure as a lesson and a new opportunity.
Ahmad: Every success or achievement is also accompanied by failure. If you don’t treat success properly, failure takes over.

I deal with failure by avoiding that which is not expected of me to do, always encouraging myself, that am not born to fail

Leno, failure is heartbreaking, I think like you I hate it. I hate to fail, if you are in business and you fail you lose everything. But, for me think of failure like encouragement, it brings in my inermost courage to fight so hard so that I should never experience it again.

I deal with failure by not going to that particular thing that caused me to fail, and I avoid peoples who doesn’t want me to progress in life
