A bad presentation, taunts from the manager, failed business deal can all make you feel bad about yourself and you may even begin to doubt your capabilities. However, it is important to remind yourself that failure is a part and parcel of life and is a valuable teacher.
So, instead of thinking about the negatives, focus on why things went wrong and how you can rectify them. Learn from your mistakes and make sure to never repeat them, instead make new mistakes, and learn from them, too.
