Summary: No matter why you’ve gone through what you consider a “failure,” you can choose to turn your failure around into a success. Here are four steps to help you do just that.

Many people seem to think that they either succeed at their goal or they’re a failure. In their minds, this means that anything short of what they envisioned means that they’ve failed. But life doesn’t work in this black and white kind of thinking.

First and foremost, sometimes we get what we need rather than what we want. Sometimes we’re meant to learn lessons along the way or we’re meant to go in a whole new direction we’d never even thought of before.

Most importantly, no matter why you’ve gone through what you consider a “failure,” you can choose to turn your failure around into a success. Here are four steps to help you do just that:

  1. Find the lesson. This step is probably the most well-known and the first step needed to turning your failure into a success. Take a look at what went wrong. Hindsight is 20/20, so use it to your advantage. What could you have done differently? What did you try that didn’t work well? How did going through this experience help you grow as a person? Actually taking the time to make note of these things can only benefit you in the future.
  2. Turn the failure into motivation. Don’t let the failure bring you down and make you afraid to try again. Take the experience and use it to motivate you in the future. Every time you fail, you’re one step closer to succeeding. You’ve tried it one way and it didn’t work out, so now you know better.
  3. Use the emotions you experience to make yourself stronger. Emotionally, failure can be pretty rough. It makes you confused and upset, but think about how failing builds your character. What kind of person do you want to be? Qualities like perseverance, self-confidence, creativity and initiative all come from someone who has gone through difficult experiences and learned from them.
  4. Apply what you’ve learned. This is the last step, but you won’t get anywhere without actually applying what you’ve learned. If you either quit or try again by doing the same thing, you’re not going to move forward. Take what you learned from the failure and use it to help you determine how to move forward in a positive way.
