Your self-esteem is your armor that enables you to fight the bad and the hurtful experiences that you face throughout your life.

Never doubt yourself because you are capable of doing everything that you put your mind too.
- Take Control after a Failure
Failure is a part of our lives. It doesn’t define us, our skills or our abilities to achieve something. But most of us feel like our life has just ended after a failure.

Figure out what variables you can control and work hard on them and try again. Motivate yourself and be around people who live you up so that you maintain a positive attitude towards yourself.
- Distract Yourself from Brooding Thoughts
Thinking about hurtful events and having evil thoughts only going to pull you down. So stop obsessing and stewing over past games and focus on your future by keeping the brooding idea out of your mind. Whenever something wrong comes to mind distract yourself with work or remain in the company of positive people to forget about your failures, breakups or any other upsetting event.

The loss is a part of our lives that we can’t avoid. It is natural and everyone faces it at some point in time. But instead of letting it destroy you find something meaning from it and use it to recover.
