Bad things happen in life. Sometimes more often then good.
What you do with the bad situations is what will define you.
There are a couple options you have when you have failed:
- Letting failure destroy you - this simply cannot be the case. Nothing great was achieved on the first try. Failure is bound with future success.
- Being defined by your failure - This is sheer insanity. Things happen. Move on. Being defined as a failure by others is only true if you never try again.
- Learning from failure - failing fast and iterating quickly are skills that need to be in your toolbox
Which will you choose? This is a rhetorical question.
