Do not make the mistake of looking at your failures as final, instead understand that it is simply a step in the process as you move forward on your success journey.
Remind yourself that your nonachievements are rarely as final as the word failure implies. Rather they are lessons you can use to gain insight into how to do things better the next time around which will lead to a more favorable outcome.
I would challenge you to find one occurrence in your own life where you have not actually gained something from a past mistake. It might take some heavy thought here, but as you ponder the situation I think you will see what I mean.
Even if it was something as simple as learning what not to do the next time around, that's still valuable knowledge to have gained.
The next time you find yourself faced with something that doesn't go as well as you planned take the time to give thought to what happened. Gain knowledge from the experience that you can apply so that things work out better the next time around.
Success in most every endeavor comes from an ongoing commitment to learning and applying what you learn. Our shortcomings can offer up valuable experiences when we choose to view them as valuable lessons as opposed to failures.
