At some point, we all have to get comfortable with the fact that we’re going to fail at something. The most important thing is not the failure itself, but what you do with it. It could literally be a blessing if you know how to handle it.
That’s not to say it’s not incredibly hard and painful to start with. I’m not suggesting we all need to take the inspirational Instagram quote approach, like: ‘You can do anything you put your mind to.’ It’s just about making an effort not to descend into negative self-talk, like: ‘I'm never gonna do anything again,’ or, ‘There's no chance for me.’
This is where meditation and therapy can be incredibly helpful. For me personally, going for a walk or a run also makes a big difference, as it releases endorphins and gives me a sense of accomplishment.
