After you encounter a setback, it can be hard to start again. But simply believing in yourself is the best way to get back on track.

    1. Recognize when failure is your fault and when it isn’t. Some setbacks are entirely out of your control. Learn to recognize the difference in your faults and what you can’t control, then move forward.

    2. Learn from your mistakes and don’t repeat them. Immediately letting go of the regret of making a mistake can be hard, so instead, focus on what caused the mistake, then learn from it.

    3. Focus on your new goal. Failure often comes from going after something we don’t truly want. Discover what you really want so you understand what you need to work on.

    4. Celebrate small wins. You don’t have to wait to celebrate, even if you haven’t reached your end goal. Validate yourself for completing smaller tasks, and you’ll empower yourself to keep going

    Find the Right Mentor. This is someone who believes in you, even when you don’t believe in yourself, and who can support you in reaching your goals. Find someone with the right knowledge and experience to learn from.
