-Did you try this thing again and again until you get it done, but what if it was a one time in life event!!!
-Did you hate this thing and keep afraid from it till death!
-Just forget as we will all be dead sooner than we think.

Failure is often an opportunity to learn. I try to do so, and then try again.

I also drink and complain about the failure to people who don't care. :)

im not a good example haha. i changed my major over the fact that i failed my digital devices class and barely passed (D) my physics class and data structures...so i guess im one of those "Just forget as we will all be dead sooner than we think." kinda people haha...

@Amadeus : I'm last a lot too...i guess we're tied for last..now that's sad.

It depends on what the thing is that I failed in, and how bad I want to succeed at it. Usually if I'm not good at something I don't keep doing it. I don't like to fail.

If you are talking about programming, then I keep trying (and ask people how to do it) until I get it right.

There are a few other things that I will keep trying even though I fail at first, like dieting.

If one thing doesn't work, then try something else until you find something that does work.

Accept it and move on. Try again sometime when you are more educated and comfortable with the situation, and try to live life unaffected. Chances are you'll find the answer to whatever it was you were looking for later on in life just out of life being random.

Although, I know really nothing about life, these are just the principles I run by.

Failure, is not an option. Even when you fall short you have succeeded in ruling out an option to acheive your goals. If you learn from your failures, then you have not failed... Except for Amadeus... grin

Failure is an inevitability in which we all face from time to time, what matters is how you face the challenges put before you and ways to strive to become better at those obstacles in your way.
