Lessons from Failure (FastCompany)

Success FailureWhat can failure teach you? An Olympic snowboarder, a Hollywood stuntman and a corporate psychologist provide some useful insights on how to handle failure. Their suggestions include refusing to let loss define you and setting attainable goals, as well as shifting your perspective. Instead of stewing in failure, psychologists suggest finding the silver lining and recognizing the benefits of the situation you are in. Failure, ultimately, can be a learning tool and in no way heralds future failures. Just ask Michael Jordan, who missed more than 9,000 shots in his career.
