Failing is very important for your goals. Failing may seem like end all be all, but if you can stay positive, it makes it much easier to achieve your goals. Some tips are to think about why you failed and what could have been done. Thinking about this in a constructive rather than destructive way is very important. Stop putting great pressure on yourself to achieve what you are trying to do. It makes it much less stressful.
- Some pressure is ok, but when it starts to affect you mentally, it’s time to stop.
- Start off with smaller goals to get to the big one. It makes it easier when you fail.
- Try not to dwell on your failures. It’s ok to see what went wrong, but when you start blaming yourself you need to stop.
