Before indulging into how we can recover from failure, it is imperative to understand failure. What does it mean to have been failed at something? Is there a specific set of events defines failure or is it something each individual determines on their own?
As per dictionary, failure is when an individual does not get desired or intended result and can also be termed as an opposite to success.
Failure is “painful” and nobody likes to fail. Though embracing failure might not be an enjoyable experience, it is perhaps the best way to learn. In fact it is a necessary evil. All successful and famous people have failed most of the times, but they chose not to “give-up”. Whilst each individual has different set of circumstances to deal with, success is not possible without a failure.
How to Come Out of Failure Depression?
Accept Failure: Success or failure needn’t necessarily be binary concept. Creating anything is difficult and there would be roadblocks in the process. Always separate failure from who you are as an individual. Be courageous to accept the failure and be determined to come out of it.
Being Passionate about your goal: Address the meaning associated with your goal. Revisit the reasons why is it important for you to succeed. Having deep passion for your goal with a right planning will supersede the failure you will ever come across.
Fix your failure: Your failure cannot be cleaned by someone else, you have to set your own things right to be able to start over again. Do whatever you can to control the further damage that might occur.
Positive Attitude: Never get in the frame of being victim to the circumstances when events are not favorable. Have optimistic approach and be committed to improvement.
Move On: In business failure can make or break an individual and the venture he/she has created. It is not so much about the failure you face but how you respond to it that would determine your success. Always remember how you define failure will determine how you feel about it- whether you decide to continue taking action or give in.
If you choose to happily succeed rather than succeed to be happy, you can always recover from failure. If you have right mindset and do things for the right reasons, the only thing that can separate you from your goals is time. Create new plan, re check the plan and execute!
