If you’ve ever tried something I’m pretty sure you’ve failed..Not just once.. maybe a couple of times. Everyone deals with failure at one time or another. I guess, failure is a huge fear for everyone. It leaves you with bruises.. It definitely bruises your ego but, it also makes you start over again! It is also crucial to handle ourselves when we find out that we’re stuck in a daunting situation. Everyone falls flat on their face now and again, when things don’t work out as planned- but really.. Really in real life, if you were to fall flat on your nose you would get up straight away and continue with what you were doing keeping in mind how not to fall back again. That’s exactly what we have to imply when we come face to face with failures in life. Here are some things that I do to I battle through in my tough times which you could try too…
DONT GO HARD ON YOURSELF
First thing first, LOVE! Love yourself honey. Be kind to yourself. Remember, everybody fails.. and just because you didn’t succeed the first time doesn’t mean you’re stupid or one less of a person. Hating yourself and surrounding yourself with your own negative thoughts won’t help you take positive steps forward. Help your mind to be more understanding towards yourself and treat yourself with less stress and constant pressure. Because guess what? There’s always next time and billions of more next time!
DON’T DROWN YOURSELF, BUT GET MORE ENTHUSISTIC
When your mum say’s “Don’t do it”.. Don’t you always do it? Correspondingly, When life gives you a hard time and secretly tells you not to DO IT.. You have to DO IT! Buckle up your shoes and get ready to fight for it, even after heart wreaking denials. Remember, you just need time and subtle change. Give it a shot again but this time, just differently.
LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
We hear this slogan almost ever time to fail which indeed is very true. The key is to come back stronger than you were before and learning from our mistakes will make us stronger. We have to make those mistakes an opportunity to grow and better yourself. Instead of crawling down in a foetal position and crying, we might want to try looking back at our mistakes and making it an opportunity educational point. What exactly went wrong??
TAKE ONE STEP BACK
Give yourself a break. When your mind and body is not ready there is no point in fighting. So, take some time off to clear your head and get a fresh perspective. Listen to your gut and start over again when you’re fully ready to come back stronger. Taking a step back does not necessarily mean you’re giving up. It’s just another way to analyse the situation and distress yourself so that you can refocus. And you’ll know when you’re ready to jump start again.
A FRESH START
Wipe off those negatives vibes and thoughts and get ready for a fresh start. Don’t hold onto your past mistakes because once you start dwelling back on your failures I’m afraid, you’ll never move forward again. Whatever happened.. happened! It’s over and nothing can change the past but we can surely build a better, bigger and brighter future!
How have you dealt with past failures?
P.S: Don’t forget to encourage yourself and the most important, Love yourself.
