7 Techniques To Stop Feeling Like A Failure

Feeling like a failure? The fear of being a failure in life, the distress of losing can be devastating. The negative thought holds us back and does not let us achieve our goals. We become self-critical whenever we fail. Some people give up on their dreams because of this failure; others take it as a challenge to pursue their passion.

How you look at a failure directs the way you look at your life. Either you let the loss define you or let it be a stepping stone to your success. Think about it, productively! Beating yourself over your lack of success leads to a feeling of doom and resentment. At some point, everyone fails; you can’t avoid it as it is a part of life. Trying to avoid failures is like trying to avoid living life itself; you would be merely surviving. You need to shift your perspective, and you may learn something in the process.



How to stop feeling like a failure? 7 Techniques to stop feeling like a failure

The following techniques will help anyone overcome their fear of failure and start leading a successful life.


Behind each time you succeed, there might be some failures. Mistakes are made on the way. Identify these mistakes and learn from them. Problems occur when we focus too much on the failures but not the lesson learned from it. Observe your mistakes and let them be the base upon which you can grow. Never regret your failures. They teach us a great many lessons to learn from them.


After a particular loss, we generally talk to ourselves. We criticize and belittle ourselves. It is incredibly damaging when the morale is down, no need to push it further in the ground. Failures sting for a while, but then you have to move on.

Once you have calmed down, analyze the problem- why you have failed. Identify the root cause; trace back your steps so you can work where you made a mistake.


Once you have analyzed what is wrong, you can actually focus on taking corrective measures. Keep your eyes on the prize.

Try to gather your wits, recalibrate, and then put your mind back to work. Set your sight on the outcome that you want. When you turn your energy and focus on the goal, you come one step closer to achieving it.


Don’t dwell on the negatives of the failed attempt. Do not lose hope; try to do something. Even if it is not good, doing anything is better than doing nothing. If you let your fear fail to drive you, you would never be able to get back up on your feet. To move ahead, you need to do some. Doing the task imperfectly is fine as long as you are working on the task.


Sometimes the fear of failure has a paralytic effect; it leads to procrastination. You would stall as long as you do not have to get back to the task at hand. Doing the ‘thing’ we like seems a bit difficult. But stalling hinders our progress.

Stop wasting time and move forward to reach your goal.


We all want to leave a legacy. We want to be known for the work we do. We do not want to be remembered as a person who lost and never stood up. Rise like a phoenix and conquer your failure. Envision a better future, work hard, and you would be able to achieve it.


Our instincts rarely lie to us. Trust your instincts, your inner guide. If you went wrong once, it does not mean that it would guide you wrong every time. In a difficult time, your inner guide will be able to guide you in the best possible manner. It would help if you were calm and patient. Don’t lose hope, and never give up on yourself. Your dreams will come true when you plan accordingly and patiently; follow your gut feeling.

Finally, Failures are required; they are rather necessary to grow in life or work. They hold in every situation, whether it is work-related or home-related. Even in relationships, you should not let your failures define you, rather let these failures be a bus stop. You need to ride the bus and stop at every station to get to your destination. Learning from your failures would only make you stronger but do not let it hit your self-esteem. Learn to overcome them; you would feel confident and ready to take even your failure as a new challenge to overcome. Stop surviving and start living, take up new chances, and learn something from them, even if it means you would have to do it alone.
