How to move on after failure — and rebuild your confidence

Be mindful of burnout

Set strict limits and boundaries on time spent on it. The more time you're able to put in a project, the more you can build your confidence.

Demanding projects are often a combination of a marathon and a sprint - many intense deadlines and tasks that lead towards accomplishing a larger goal. Take the time to celebrate the sprints after they're done.

Why Interviewers Ask It

This introductory question serves as an icebreaker to lend an easy flow to the conversation. It helps the recruiter to get to know you in terms of hard and soft skills.

It’s a great op...

How to build your response
  • Present: Talk a little bit about what your current role is, the scope of it, and possibly a recent achievement.
  • Past: Tell the interviewer how you got there and/or mention a past experience that’s relevant to the job and company you’re applying for.
  • Future: Continue with what you’re looking to do next and why you’re interested in this job.
You do not have to respond in this order. Tweak it to suit you. Make sure to tie it to the job and company.
Tailor Your Answer

Interviewers want to know how your answer about yourself is relevant to the position and company you’re applying for.

This is an opportunity to articulate why you’re interested and how your objective fulfills their goals. In order to do that, spend some time researching the company. If your answers resonate with them, it shows that you really understand the role.

Focus on learning

The chips aren’t always going to fall where you want them to, but if you understand that reality going in, you can be prepared to wring the most value out of the experience, no matter the outcom...

Redefining failure

Behind many fears is worry about doing something wrong, looking foolish, or not meeting expectations — in other words, fear of failure. By framing a situation you’re dreading differently before you attempt it, you may be able to avoid some stress and anxiety.

Approach goals vs. avoidance goals

Goals can be classified as approach goals or avoidance goals based on whether you are motivated by wanting to achieve a positive outcome or avoid an adverse one.

When you’re dreading a tough task and expect it to be difficult and unpleasant, you may unconsciously set goals around what you don’t want to happen rather than what you do want.

Self Esteem Vs Self-Worth
Self Esteem Vs Self-Worth

Many of us have our growing up years filled with experiences that destroy our self-worth. Slowly we establish in our minds that we are not good enough.

Self-worth is different from self-est...

Society Primes Us To Feel Unworthy
  • Ads on TV tell us what we need to spend money on to become acceptable, successful or lovable.
  • Our educational system measures us using standard grades and test-scores, destroying our individuality.
  • Parents love our accomplishments and subtly want us to push ourselves towards greater success at the cost of our freedom of personal choice.
  • Social media has highly effective metrics to measure our worthiness, like the number of followers or likes.

When we fail to do what society wants us to do, we lose approval and experience unworthiness.

Imagine A Beautiful World

Begin to feel worthy by:

  1. Forgiving yourself for your past mistakes, acknowledging and accepting our flaws and deeds.
  2. Accept how you look, your laugh, your smile, your unique way of looking at the world. That’s what makes you special.
  3. Embrace your quirks and work towards enhancing your worldview.
  4. Do not criticise yourself when you experience emotional pain. Be kind to yourself.
  5. Connect with people who are supportive and healing.
  6. Have the courage to free yourself from society's rules and work towards being you.
