Scott’s Answer

Learn from it! You will overcome this. Every failure is a future opportunity to succeed.


“Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” - Denis Waitley, Motivational Speaker and Author


Look at your failure as a learning opportunity. By the end of a semester, no one remembers the failure on a paper or test, only the final grade in the course. By the end of college, no one remembers the dropped or retaken courses, but the success of the degree. College is about learning. You did not succeed this time, so use this as a learning opportunity.


What did you do that was successful? Did you start a study group? Spend time studying 20 minutes a day? Do all of the homework? Identify your strengths and weaknesses. Then form a plan to utilize your strengths to OVERCOME your weaknesses.

Roger’s Answer

What Scott says... "Learn from it." The best way to deal with failure is to learn from it. I have learned FAR more from my failures than from my successes. Some of my failures or where I have screwed up over my lifetime include my first choice for college, relationships, major purchases (like a 2nd home condo), a few stock market investments of companies that went bankrupt, not paying bills on time, spending more than I make, and speeding tickets. Where I have failed... I have learned to succeed.


Let’s face it. We all make mistakes.Most of us know that failure is a reality of life, and at some level, we understand that it actually helps us grow. Intellectually, we even acknowledge that the greatest achievers -- past and present -- also routinely experienced colossal failures.But still, we hate to fail. We fear it, we dread it, and when it does happen, we hold onto it. We give it power over our emotions, and sometimes we allow it to dictate our way forward (or backward). Some of us go to great lengths to https://scoop.eduncle.com/11-secrets-of-happiness avoid failure because of all the pain and shame associated with it. Deepanshi J.

Tina’s Answer

You aren't trying if you don't fail. If you succeed at everything you, then you aren't challenging yourself. Each day you should do things that make you uncomfortable. Learn from your experiences and apply those lessons to your next attempt.

Anusha’s Answer

Once succeeded not always succeeded and same is with the failure.

But the more we think about failures, the more we are limited. Simply because our doubtful thoughts makes us blind to see the opportunities when they are in front of us.

So success or failure is not permanent, change is the only constant.

Daniela’s Answer

Failure is a part of life, and we make mistakes pretty much every day. 

Don’t let it get to you and think about how things could have been worse.

Don't make it personal. Don't waste time thinking it over and over and what other things you can done to avoid it. Try look at it through this quote: I'm happy that it's raining because if I wouldn't be happy, it would still be raining. 

Learn from it.
