Let Sarah read it out for you.
Failure, a state which not many can handle; is a state which has its own significance in one’s life. It teaches one to be grounded, not to develop ego and motivates one to perform better next time. Following is a step by step guide through which you can deal with failure and work hard to not see it again!
1. Gain Courage, Stand Up And be Ready to Bounce Back!
No doubt it is difficult to cope up with failure, but what one needs, are, 3 important things to keep in mind at this stage.
First : – keep your calm, accept the failure and just give time to settle
Second : – stop getting affected by remarks people give you.
Third : – gain courage, fill you mind with positivity to give another try.
After the above steps, set your goal in your mind and aim for it without any further distractions. “Instead of looking at 100 reasons to quit, look at 1000 reasons not to give up”
2. Go Back, See What Went Wrong
Many-a-times, we are very confident about our preparation whether in a school exam or in a meeting at work. If things, didn’t go as expected, why not try and look back again, to know what exactly are our weak points, that require improvement?
This exercise will not only familiarize you with your weaknesses but can help you focus on those weak areas to make them strong. Always remember, “Mistakes are you biggest teachers”
3. Work on Weakness
Once, you know what your weaknesses are, comes the tough part! You need to work on them, day and night, to make them strong. Many lose their patience in this process. But you need to understand, if failure was so easy to overcome, then value of your efforts would always be hidden!
Lionel Messi said “I start early and I stay late; day after day, year after year, it took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success”
4. Motivation and A Goal
It’s very important to have a motivating factor in your mind when you want to achieve something. The motivation can be of any sort or any kind. Be it money, be it luxury, be it happiness. Being aware about your specific goal combined with motivation (here, encouragement) can bring out the real flavor of your efforts!
5. Have Confidence
It is necessary to have confidence in yourself, but in this process, again, be cautious about not getting carried away and be very careful about not having put the prefix ‘over’ before confidence!
This over-confidence can ruin the efforts that you took.
