Why We Lose Hope or Give Up
You have failed once and more likely you feel like it would happen again so you don't bother trying again
The Problem With Giving In To Failure
Easily giving up after your first failure could lead to a bad habit. Every time you quit, you strenghten your belief that failure is bad, which can prevent you from trying again.
How To Avoid Giving Up
Change The Way You Think About Failure
Here are some examples of thoughts about failure that will likely discourage you from trying again:
1. Failure is unacceptable.
2. I’m either a complete success or a complete failure.
Replace the irrational thoughts with these realistic reminders:
1. Failure is often part of the journey to success.
2. I can handle failure.
