Failure is a Fact of Life
Successful men and women are separated from those who are not successful by their attitude about failure. People who are successful don’t fear it. But they feel that failure, though they don’t like it, is one of the best things that happened to them. They recognize rebirthings can happen. At some point in your life, you will experience failure. Whether it’s a public or private, it happens.
Failure has stages similar to the ones identified by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in her book On Death and Dying: denial, anger, bargaining, letting go, and acceptance. Carole Hyatt and Linda Gottlieb wrote When Smart People Fail, an international best seller. In their section on The Anatomy of Failure, they also identify stages of failure: shock, fear, anger, blame, shame, and despair.
