Unaccomplished goals sting. There's no debate over it. No matter how hard you try, it just doesn't always happen. You can let the failure break you and tear you down, or you can use it as motivation to persist, persevere at times of adversity, and keep trying.
Michael Jordan once said, "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
Jordan has learned to see the silver lining through his failures and I'm here too, to discuss the several takeaways from unachieved goals. The lessons you can embrace will take your disappointment, transform it into drive and dedication, and help you recommit to your goals.
