What do you do when you feel like a failure!

I feel like that so often it is not even funny! Many times it is not a feeling but a truth. I n reality everyone fails alot But on the other hand everyone suceeds alot. I am going to look at my sucesses today!

When I feel like I've failed, I remind myself of all the hard work I've done and that small slip (or large slip) will not undo all those days, weeks, and months of hard work. Then I tell myelf to "just keep going!"

I just redefine success to something more attainable.

Think about the old saying "Turn your weaknesses into successes" - you know, like when doing an interview---you talk about your weaknesses and then talk about what changes you are making to make those weaknesses into a strength... :-)

You know, think optimist vs. pessimist... :-)

One thing though, it's a new "learned habit" that you need to work on-- so when you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts of failure, you have to consciously stop yourself and "rewire" your thinking by changing to a more optimistic thought...

I hope that makes some sense! ;-)

well, speaking of failing I have failed my boards 4 times to get into a residency program in internal medicine. It is tough most people will quit but not me. I have endured alot, I am determined to make it. I am organizing myself better, evaluting what I did wrong, make a viable game plan and moving forward. Nothing is impossible, everything and anything is possible, if you really want it. I will make it and be the best damn doctor there is.

I can be the queen of that sometimes! I just remind myself of the friendships that I have. If those people can feel the way they do about me, then I can't be a failure. Sometimes that helps when I'm self-sabatoging

Do something for someone else - someone you love or someone you have never seen before ....feel the power and the joy of being able to help someone else.

... and remember, you are not a failure until you stop trying!

I have that inner voice that creeps up from time to time and I feel like a failure and then I try to change my bad attitude and count my blessings and I always instantly feel better.

3:47 - If you made it through med school, you must have done something right! Keep working on it! One of my friends did the same thing when becoming a teacher--she couldn't pass the math test-- but she persisted and is now the head of her department at her high school!

My sister failed the bar the 1st time she took it-- Not that she used it as an excuse, but she had just lost a close friend 2 weeks before-- but decided to take the test anyways in memory of her friend. She is now a practicing lawyer....

Keep on keeping on... With your persistence, you'll make it!
