I failed at the exam and I felt like a total failure.
It was raining heavily and for a moment,
I felt like throwing the answer paper into the rains.
I felt like a total failure
Fearing the worst, I went home only
to find my problem reframed.
Carol Dweck (Growth Mindset) says
validation or confirmation of how good they are
Hence, when they fail,
they feel like a “failure”
as a challenge to be grown out of
as learning to be implemented
as an action to be taken to improve
as a necessary step for growth
it is not an identity
it is not who you are
Whether you have failed in
It does not make you a “failure”
Look at it as an event
to learn from
to grow from

What failure in your life,
did you use as a stepping stone
for learning and growth?
