The Myth: “Celebrating failure” is better than “You can’t afford to fail” attitude.
The Fact: Focusing on failure is detrimental. Both attitudes encourage failures.
Here are some better tips to prevent and deal with failures, inspired by Robert Biswas-Diener:
1. Set goals for yourself and expectations for others clearly.
2. When things deviate from your goals and expectations, try to reframe a perceived failure in terms of success.
This is a good example from Muniba Mazari.
