Is Failure the End of Everything?


"The important thing is to learn a lesson every time you lose." --John McEnroe

Much as we would like, not everything is going to go our way. Even if we prepare for what we hope is every eventuality, things will, and do, go wrong. It is how we react to those situations that is important, not necessarily the situations themselves. Are you going to collapse in a heap and wish everyone and everything would go away? Are you going to pretend that nothing has happened? What else is there to do?

It's time to decide that there is no such thing as failure, just the opportunity to learn from the experience and move forward.

How about taking what was considered to be a failure, seeing what needs to be changed, improved etc, so that it does not recur, and go on from there.

Decide not to repeat the same mistakes and face the next challenge with your head held high.

By making those mistakes, and learning from them, you will grow and accomplish more. Learn what doesn't work and query why it didn't work and take the opportunity to try a new approach.

Examine everything and formulate plan B, C or Z - until it does work.

Take responsibility. Find a solution.

Your own failure would be if you didn't make the decision to learn and move on - to success.
