Managing Emotions to Learn from Failure

Book Description

This Element is an excerpt from From Lemons to Lemonade: Squeeze Every Last Drop of Success Out of Your Mistakes (ISBN: 9780131362734) by Dean A. Shepherd. Available in print and digital formats.

At some point, you will fail: here’s how to handle it—and gain from the experience!

If you’re normal, you’ll have obstacles, setbacks, and outright failures. For some people, these sting like the dickens. For others, they lead to total collapse. I want to help prepare you not only to expect to deal with some failure, but to deal with it more effectively when it comes, and actually derive some good from it.
