    How do you look at your failures?

    I try to look at them as learning experiences and something to help me get better.  Sometimes that is hard to do because a failure feels so final, but I do my best to try to overcome that feeling and keep moving on.

      I agree Cherylone. Failures are tough to move past but I try to think of what I can learn from this mistake. My parents taught me to always take responsibility for my actions. I try to do just that. I take responsibility, try to fix it, and move on.

    There are no failures....only learning experiences, if you take the time to think about it, and to act on it. Every 'failure" as you call it, puts you one step closer to success.
    Maybe if you call it a challenge or an obstacle, it will be easier to get past it and move on, wiser than before.

    There is a saying that goes, "if life throws you a lemon, make lemon juice out of it".
