How Do You Deal with Failure?

By Joyce Odidison

Apr 10

This Question Stirs up Unhappy Feelings for Many People, but its an Important Enough Question to Ask. 

We will all face failure at some point in our lives, what we do when we fail will determine our future success.

If you have ever failed at a diet, failed in a relationship, a job, a career path or even a business venture, or partnership, then you know the emotional turmoil that comes with failure.

Sometimes you berate yourself, imagine the worst possible outcome, think there’s no hope, become wracked with fears, doubts and disappointment. Some of us even become crippled by fear to the extent that we forego future risks, going on to play small for the rest of their lives.

Failure accounts for many sleepless nights, overwhelm, self-doubt, heart attacks, mental health disease and other health conditions. It also rubs us of professional self-esteem.

Surprisingly, we expect professional athletes to make quick come backs like winning their next game even if they lost their last game. Its easy to fret, stress, regret and become crippled with fear to the extent that we become afraid to “get back on the horse.”

Winners deal with failures differently. They get upset and may shed a tear, but what separates them from losers is that they spend most of their time planning how to win in the end.

If you have taken a risk and met with setback or are facing obstacles on the way to your goals, you are still on the winning side. Then join me as I host the 90 Day Leadership Bootcamp for those on their way to winning big.
