What happens when someone fails?
- They accept the result and never returns (quit)
- They may get frustrated and stressed
- They get up, refresh and get ready for another attempt
Too few belong to the third category.
Too many belong to the second category.
And a good number of people belong to the first category.
Of course, a failure
- Exhausts your energy
- Exhausts your resource
- Exhausts your time
What else can you expect from a failure?
Failure is not a point that makes you clueless about where to move next. Failure is a circumstance. Your contemplation of the circumstance determines whether a failure fails you or lets you find your weaknesses. Your body language, your planning, and the way you reset your lifestyle reflect your mindset. You may either call it a day or emerge as a more determined and resilient version of yourself.
Failure can be your “friend, guide, and philosopher” or it can be an astute invisible antagonist that confuses you.
Is failure a step forward to success or a reason to stop dreaming? Is it a way of finding what can go wrong or a reason to curse yourself? Can it become a magnifying glass to spot your weakness or accept yourself as weak? Is failure a resource or retirement package?
It’s all up to you – your psychological construct is incredible.
