How to Manage Failure with EARL Technique

Why do people give up their dreams and goals?

One of the reasons could be because they don’t know of how to manage failure. Today, I want to share tips, how to manage failure.  Managing failure is important because we may give up our dreams and goals when we can’t manage our failure.  Break the pattern for moving away from hard feeling  is only for short-term solution.  In order that we learn from our failure and turn it into success, I would suggest EARL technique. EARL technique is used in coaching. E means exhale or relax or calm down our hard feeling. A is assess our situation, like what is the reason we fail. Then, R is reframe. We can reframe any difficult situation into a positive statement. Like Thomas Alva Edison who said: I haven’t failed, I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Lastly, L is learn.  What do we learn from our failure? Soichiro Honda, the founder of Honda said: success is 99% failure. Success can be achieved through repeated failure and introspection. Managing failure is part of goal setting process.
