Many useful tips to:
- Help those who have experienced moments of failure in their lives.

- Learn how to transform a negative experience into a strength.
Failure as a life experience from which to learn
From a very young age, we all experience, one way or another, what could be seen as failures. By instinct, we have a tendency to bring ourselves down, to see failure as the negative conclusion of a certain experience.
When confronted with failure, we may at first not see that these experiences are a plethora of lessons to be learnt. The mistakes we make don’t only teach us not to repeat them: they are food for thought. The emotions linked to the feeling of failure harden our character, making us better and better at handling this type of situation.
