5 Ways to Deal With Failure in Your Career

“The beauty of life is that whatever happens and however it happens, it goes on.”
Our lives are an amalgamation of ‘success’ and ‘failure’. For a child, his ‘success’ can be tying his shoelaces on his own. His ‘failure’ can be tripping over the same laces. But in hindsight, it is realized, that these were neither success nor failures, they were merely experiences.

A failure or even a series of failures can impact you negatively. How you reassemble your thoughts and move on from that point on defines you as an individual.

Here are 5 ways to deal with failures:

  1. Let it all out
    We sometimes tend to think that no one will be able to understand our situation. We milk our problem for too long, all alone. But, if we just take the time out and start sharing our problem with people we trust, a clarity of mind begins to set in.
  2. Failure is universal
    By her own submission, JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, had her books being rejected by a number of publishers. Right now, it seems impossible for us to accept this fact as she is extremely famous. But, it did happen. Just imagine if she would have given up writing fearing more failures. It is by example that we should learn that failure is temporary. Faith and conviction in oneself and one’s talent should always keep one going.
  3. Move onto the next project
    Life is more than what today holds. Life is a sea of opportunities. These opportunities can only be availed by you if you act fast. If you hit a roadblock, don’t wait for the traffic to clear. Backup your vehicle and move along another road. Who knows you meet up with your destination via the other way?
  4. Don’t let anyone get to you
    There might be instances when someone tries to make us feel bad because of one bad experience. DO NOT let this get to you. You are not, in any way, lesser than any individual. All you have to do is work hard for the next opportunity. If your parents get worried, explain to them that this is just a small bad phase and with their support, you can ultimately achieve what you want.
  5. It does not define you
    It is human tendency to remember all the bad phases but forget the good phases. But we must always remember that any bad phase of your life does not define you. You are a good human being if your kind, respectful of the law, confident and headstrong. These are the only qualities you need to imbibe and repeat about yourself, over and over again.

“No matter how often you fail, you are not a failure as long as you don’t give up.”
True, indeed.
