“Frame failure as an AFOG (Another F*cking Opportunity for Growth). You are more likely to recover from failure if you invest energy into unpacking the lessons.” | Prof Carole Robin

This year, I’ve experienced some tough failures and rejections, probably the most I’ve got in a while. 

Whenever I face failure or rejection, I remember the quote: There are two tragedies in life: one is not getting what you want, and the other is getting it.”

Looking back, my biggest failures and rejections always led to significant personal growth. However, despite knowing this logically, experiencing failure isn’t any less difficult.

In these situations, I follow the three-day rule: I allow myself 3 days to process my emotions without suppressing them. After that, I get back up and into the arena.
