You would be surprised at how many people learn from failures, but never apply what they learned. Successful people fail many times. However, the reason they are successful is that they not only learned from failures, but they implemented what was learned. Application is the key. It seems sensible, but how many times have you seen a project fail, but the reason why it failed is never addressed in the next project?
When you apply what you learned, you create new opportunities for yourself, your company, and your team. This is one way you can find an opportunity in every situation. It's essential to reflect on failures instead of just moving on and forgetting about it. Yes, you shouldn’t let a failure lower your self-esteem or sense of worth. However, you can move forward with new solutions when you put what you learned into action.
Take the time to reflect on your failures, implement what you learned, and then your performance at work will be better than you expect.
