“It is better to try, and perhaps fail, than never to have tried at all” – M Dennison
Attempting to overcome difficult tasks or problems may lead to failure but what we learn along the way can help us grow and be stronger. On the other hand, if we always avoid trying to overcome difficulties then we can become trapped in a vicious cycle of avoidance and fear.
1. Have a positive attitude towards failure and re-frame from being a ‘failure’ to being a ‘learning point’, “That was the time when I learnt that…”, “This is not a stumbling block; it is just another stepping stone”
2. Move on from the incident, file it away, and choose to focus on the future.
