Posted: September 2, 2008 in Failures & Success

None of us has never been on the top of success without passing through the way of failure. Even the richest man in the world, the most powerful president had experienced once failure in their lives. There are people who views failure as a source of inspiration to move on, there are also who sees it as a failure itself and they just stuck to it and there are people who don’t know how to cope up failures. At the end of everything it’s not on how many failures you have in your life, but it’s how you manage to recover from it. Here are some business tips on how to recover from failure and these things can be applied also to our daily lives.

  • Swallow Your Pride – We fail because  we knew on the first place that we are on the wrong track but still we are insisting that we are right. Sometimes try to listen to others, give them chance to talk and accept their ideas. Be humble to accept the fact that there are ideas that are greater than our ideas.

  • Meditate – The hardest thing in the world is to walk away, but we need it, for you to clarify your mind, for you to think of a better ideas and for you to rest for a while away from the burden of problems and failures. Sometimes we need to meditate, reflect to yourself, ask your self what have you done. Turning your back away doesn’t means cowardliness but it’s a sort of being smart to the decisions you are making in your life.

  • Take Comfort in Your Convictions – If you think you fail, admit it and have some comfort in the idea that once in your life, it’s normal for normal people to fail.

  • Cut Yourself a Break – No one is perfect. Be who you are, we are just human, we are not divine, we were born to commit mistakes. Have a break from your daily life, make a change and live to what is right based on the mistakes you have committed.

  • Follow a Mantra“It is not the critic who counts. … The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, who … if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt speech in 1912. Stand to what you believed, have a philosophy in life and follow it wholeheartedly every now and then.

  • Put Things in Perspective – Prioritize what is more important. Manage things depends on how important these things in your decisions in life. View it in different perspective.

  • Demolish Something – Life seems to be a vast of everything. Having all things in life may cause a great burden to us. Learn how to unload unnecessary things in life.

  • Prove Them Wrong – We fail because we think that our best wasn’t that good enough for other people. Challenge yourself that they were wrong, make something worth they think you can’t.

  • Remember the Single Greatest Truth About Failure – Learn the lesson from every failure you have made in your life.
