Failure is inevitable. A part of life. Everyone fails.
The trick is what do do when we fail.
Take 30 minutes to write yourself an "In Case of Failure Letter". Seal it or keep it out of sight, and don't look at it until you fail.
If you need some inspiration, take a look at my in case of failure letter:
This letter has come in handy when I've failed or had a day that didn't go as planned. Reading this letter has brought me back from sinking into negative self-talk that doesn't serve me and has allowed me to self-reflect on what matters the most while helping me improve.
By writing your own "In Case of Failure Letter" you start to realize that failure is a part of life and WILL happen. However, your response will decide how much airtime you choose to give failure and assist you with focusing on how to bounce back quickly.
I'll end with this powerful quote on failure:
The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.” —John C. Maxwell
