How to recover from failure

This is a little visualization exercise I want you to try to help you ease the guilt of failure.

When you fail at something, instead of crying and blaming yourself, sit down, relax, take a deep breath, close your eyes and imagine or visualize a round trampoline. Now visualize yourself falling on that trampoline.

Notice what happens. Did you injured yourself? Did it hurt? Did you remained down? The answer is NO.

Falling on the trampoline didn’t hurt you, didn’t caused you any injuries and you didn’t remained down there, you actually bounced back up quicker than it took you to fall. And pay attention to this: you actually are now at a higher point than you were when you fell.

Repeat this exercise in your mind multiple times if you need and you will notice confidence building up and motivation to try again to achieve your goal.

Failing is not the end of the world, it’s a process of learning what didn’t worked and improve the next try. I failed at so many things so many times that I can’t even count and I’m still here trying again. You can do it too.
