Good attitude indeed. I was taught that being fired is a disgrace, a career killer, which is to be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. I was also taught that failure is UNPARDONABLE, UNFORGIVABLE! One MUST ALWAYS SUCCEED!
Wow, with all due respect, this sounds like a lot of people in your life who needed a bit of perspective. Everyone fails at something at some point - it's those who keep getting back up that find the best successes in life.
Having a mindset like this causes some people to sink into a deep depression/consider suicide when life throws them a curve. My mother used to say: "I was looking for a job when I found this one!" No one wants to be fired but it's not the end!
To ChristinS & Dashing, some people have such a dour outlook on life, they believe that being fired IS THE END. They inculcate this premise unto their children which result in some becoming quite suicidal when things go awry!

that is the mature way to be. However, there are parents who refuse to tolerate failure of any kind. They endlessly rehash mistakes/failures that their children made. They believe that ALL must be PERFECT AT ALL TIMES!
