1. Get rid of all negative emotions and learn

There is no failure, only feedback!

Remember what Thomas Edison said, "I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work."

2. Go into a fresh-start mindset more intelligently

Given the situation you are in now as a starting point, consider various options: what opportunities for and a roadmap to ultimate success can you see or imagine?

3. Take different views of the situation

Having looked at the scene from your view, look at it from different perspectives, try each of these views:

  • an optimist's view;

  • a pessimist's view;

  • an anarchist's view;

  • an architect's view;

  • a child's view;

  • a poet's view;

  • a strategist's view;

  • a competitor's view;

  • a customer's view;

  • a supplier's view;

  • Salvador Dali's view;

  • Charles Darwin's view.
