What you do next is insanely important.
Do you let it put you down? Does it motivate you to do better? Do you start analyzing what you could change? Do you make excuses for why you failed? Do you blame someone else? Do you move on to something else? Do you regroup and attack it again?
Whether you missed out on a PR lift, failed a test, didn’t get a job promotion, botched an important speech… whatever it is, how you handle that next moment will make or break you.
Remember, it starts with you.
Those are not times of defeat, those are opportunities for growth.
How will you face these opportunities?
