We all have failed a number of times in this journey of life. From being an infant, learning to walk, failing in your examination to struggling to get a job. Be it minor or pre-eminent failure we all have something going on in our mind during that phase. To get a fine grasp of it let's dig in deeper. (Crockett, L., 2015)

What Is Failing?

When we try to perform or practice something arduously but end up not achieving the result or the goal is what is meant by failing. We all have failed in multiple aspects in this cycle of life from hitting a personal record in the gym or learning yoga for a healthy lifestyle to not being able to reach the finishing line first we all lie.

However, what are the reasons for failing, and what happens when we fail is what we all sometimes get curious about. Thus, let`s break the curiosity and see the reasons for failure.

Why Do We Fail?

We end up failing due to many reasons but a jot of them are listed below, if you feel stuck midway and not being able to reach your goals here might be a few reasons.

Lacking Self-Esteem Shatters, The Dream.

We all have certain goals, if not huge it might be small that we wish to accomplish but low self-esteem leads us to the wrong path. Criticizing yourself, putting yourself down in your own eyes, or being pessimistic about your own self can be one of the reasons for not being able to push back up. Thus, end up failing.

Not Holding On To Your Goal Takes a Huge Toll.

As previously said, we all have goals but not being persistently running or working for them leads to failure. Once you fail, you do not end up holding back and leave midway which enables or stops you from winning thus, ends up deteriorating your performance.

Discipline Is The Only Line To Sucess.

If we have a goal and do not end up working for it with punctuality, hard work ends up failing. Discipline is the mode of attainment of practice and thus, in order to if not disciplined enough end up losing.

Thus, these are a few reasons for failing however there are a lot more that varies from holding on to the past to lousy attitude. Now that we know what are our reasons for failing, let`s look at what happens when we fail do we learn from it, or do we fall back let`s dive right into it.

What Happens When We Fail?

From what we have experienced, we all have gone through a roller coaster of failure but what exactly happens when we fail? A big bang of emotions? Or a meteor shower of motivation let`s explore this universe of failure. (Kurec, A., 2014)

  • Road To Failure: 1.Burst Of Pessimistic Thughts.

When we fail, we end up getting frustrated and irritated or not being able to succeed and end up holding up on it. We often tend to feel sad or even depressed due to failing. All kinds of thoughts occur from questioning your own self to the thoughts of leaving everything behind is what goes on in our mind realistically making us anxious.

  • Road To Failure: 2. Realization.

Once we fail the days pass and we start to realize where we lack or still be negative about it and end up quitting. However, in both cases, we realize what is meant for us and either move forward or dwell on it. As every coin has two sides, we either come up with a negative outcome or positive but end up perceiving something.

  • Road To Failure: 3. Endgame.

We either end up quitting or we learn from something from it. But either way, come up with a result be it negative or positive.

Thus, this is how we usually go through the road of life, we fall and get back up or sink in the tar.

However, if we end up with a negative result here is how you can hold on to it and come out bigger and stronger.

Coping Up With It.

Here are a few measures which can be utilized in order to cope up with your failures and get past them.

  • Dont Dwell To Get The Outcome Well.

Holding on to something that might in turn affect you do not turn out to be good, if you fail, you fail. Accepting the fact and moving on trying again is the apt thing to do. Dwelling on the same thing would waste time, energy, and scope of improvement. Thus, dont constantly linger on to the failure.

  • Learning From Your Mistakes Is What It Takes.

Falling behind implies that you have tried and can improve where you lack. As it is well said failing leads to improvement thus, even if you fail absorb all the omissions and correct them. Thus, the mantra of the road to success can be achieved from failing-learning-correcting-repeating (in case you lack back again)

  • Dont Lose Motivation.

Failure always leads you to good results, thus, even if you fail dont leave the success trail. And hence, dont lose motivation to achieve the goal. Keep yourself focused and dedicated and hustle. You will end up with good results.

Now that we have seen the whole lane of failure let's end the road to success.

The End.

Thus, we fail but rising back up is what is important and thus, rise back up in order to fail and get back on the right track.(Madsen, P.M. and Desai, V., 2010)
