JUN 27, 2014 8:47p ET
Most people look at failure negatively, feeling bad and not realizing the gift that failing provides. There are very few things that you can actually fail at and not have the opportunity to improve and give another shot. Some of the best lessons can be learned by undesirable outcomes. There is no greater truth than realizing you weren't ready or weren't prepared.
When looking at failure positively you are able to get stronger and smarter, you have the ability to analyze your shortcomings and improve upon them for the next opportunity. Without trying and pushing yourself beyond your limits, you aren't able to really test your potential.
The best way to deal with failure is to beat it before it has a chance to beat you. To always give your all, to do your best, put all of your heart into the things you do. If for some reason you are met with failure, you can rest at ease, because you know you did everything you could.
I have had my share of failures throughout my life and I will continue to fail, but I won't be beat or discouraged. I will take these lessons I learn and apply them until I no longer fail.
