Failures And It’s Counter Measures

Spread the love

Hi  guys welcome back to another blog post , you know our life is series of ups and downs in which we falls many times and rise many times . In this post  I am want to say  some facts about failures. you may read  the advantage of failures in my previous posts. Have you ever think about what failures gifts us , yes from failures either one will grow or will fall down .


Those who grow will achieve success and those who fall down will remain miserable. I think falling down is not failure but staying down is a big big failure. some of us can’t able to handle  failures very efficiently that’s why we get failures frequently face it negatively.If you fail in your first attempt then plan well , change strategies then try again once more because if you do not follow smartly  it will give you the same results .


 If you again fail then  repeat the above steps that is change plan and strategies , continue like this persistently . Each time your plan and strategies fails nothing to worry about it ,at least you get new experience and knowledge so that it become benefit in your future.


Remember the word persistence it plays the huge role in any field of success.


 One of the fact is success after failures or lots of hard work is more sweeter than getting success by luck .


 Now the question is how do we handle our failures efficiently , Is there any way to handle failures. If we handle our failures efficiently then it will be great helpful for the rest of our life. There are four ways to handle this  failures let’s  see what are they.


  1. differentiate action from identity

It means differentiate or extract action from your identity for example some peoples say exam failed rather than saying I failed in the exam .


Problem arises when we accept failures personally . Think failure is an event not a person for example if you failed in business say business get failed than saying I failed in business. suppose if I get failed in a exam then if I try again I will pass sure  here if we see failure as a event then you will get pass next time by doing lots of hard work smartly .I think you get what I mean so differentiate action from identity.


2.Learn from past

it is the best way to learn from our life . That is why one remains always a learner through out his or her entire life.Think it as a opportunity to learn from life for what we invest our money and time. As you know one of the richest man Warren buffet always says “ More you learn , more you earn “.




so learn from every failures it is the second way to handle the failures . see failures in our life is  an opportunity and experience to learn more from our life that you will not get from any other university, it is the world university that you have to learn something from your positive experience and  , discard from negative experience.


 Don’t blame on failures instead think about , what do you get know from it. so if you blame failure you remain failure else will grow rich and will achieve success. Get know every master was once a disaster so there is no failures there is only results . In this occasion I came to remember the golden words of  our great Indian scientist A.P.J Abdul kalam.


That is FAIL means First   Attempt  In Learning . Remember try to learn the wisdom from other’s experiences and knowledge also . If you want to know more about failures read the biographies of Abraham Lincoln , Thomas Alva Edison , Helen Keller . There are so many books available online choices is yours so be proactive.


  1. Let Go and Let God.

Do the work with your heart and soul as a part of you. As is said above about persistence so continuously try once more with different plans and strategies . As Indian saint swamy vivekanand  said “ Arise awake try try, try again until you succeed.”


There are many distractions and unexpected event occur on your way to success so handle them carefully without losing your focus on your work.  For example if you are householder while doing work in your company project , suppose you get call from you wife saying her mother got hospitalized in ICU unit so come soon. what you do there are two options available that is option


(1) you can delegate your work on your assistance temporarily . (2) You will have to stop your current project temporarily.


 In Either case you have to nothing to loss just after short period of time you can bounce back on your project . what I want to say here  some people long  interval of time to get bounce back .


I am not saying that ignore situations like this because we all are social beings so how does one ignore this , Instead handle like this emergency  situations deliberately.


  1. Be Proactive

Proactive means  the opposite of reactive that is take actions consciously .  Do you know there are three types of human beings are on  this earth. They are



3.Between Proactive and Reactive


Now we examine these types of peoples one by one . Let’s start with Proactive people .


  1. Proactive


The word proactivity is now fairly common in management literature, it is a word you won’t find in most dictionaries. It means more than merely taking initiative. It means that as human beings, we are responsible for our own lives.


Our behavior is a function of our decisions, not our conditions. We can subordinate feelings to values. We have the initiative and the responsibility to make things happen. Remember we are the masters of our fate and captain of our soul because we can control our thoughts.


  1. Reactive

Now let’s look into Reactive person . Reactive people are also affected by their social environment, by the “social weather.” When people treat them well, they feel well; when people don’t, they become defensive or protective. Reactive people build their emotional lives around the behavior of others, empowering the weaknesses of other people to control them.


The ability to subordinate an impulse to a value is the essence of the proactive person. Reactive people are driven by feelings, by circumstances, by conditions, by their environment.


Proactive people are driven by values — carefully thought about, selected and internalized values. Proactive people are still influenced by external stimuli, whether physical, social, or psychological. But their response to the stimuli, conscious or unconscious, is a value based choice or response.


3.Between Proactive and Reactive

As you know there are  some peoples become proactive in certain circumstance but become reactive in another circumstances.


 As Eleanor Roosevelt observed, “No one can hurt you without your consent.” In the words of Gandhi, “They cannot take away our self respect if we do not give it to them.”


It is our willing permission, our consent to what happens to us, that hurts us far more than what happens to us in the first place. Remember one thing always try to become proactive than reactive because proactive people will always succeed in the long run.


Ok guys these are the four ways that I know to face the failures in our life may it help you .
