If yes,How did you handle that failure ? Did you cry ? Were you angry ? Did you do something to compensate with it ? How did you deal with it ?
I kept failing in biology in 12th standard throughout the term including all the tests, midterm and mock board exam. I hated that subject. I hate memorizing. Professors encouraged us more and more to mug things up without understanding because they thought "we don't have much time and exams are coming". Of course we didn't have time because of so many bullshit tests. I did extremely good in Math, Physics and English but bio was a nightmare! I wasn't confident about the final exam but I had no choice. I can't believe I mugged up a lot of things and scored 66/100 in the final exam. I was so relieved! After that, thankfully I've never had to mug things up like that. But those failures made me realize that you can't expect everything in your own way. You have to do some things that you really hate but are really important. One of my zoology professors was very kind and his guidance really helped me get out of my bio-phobia. Thankfully, engineering has been really amazing so far.If yes,How did you handle that failure ? Did you cry ? Were you angry ? Did you do something to compensate with it ? How did you deal with it ?
Well,I've got to go through what you went through for the next two years except for the fact that I hate math.My failures have always been due to math.I'd work so hard but when I fail,It would put in distress.So I adopted this new strategy of working smart.It's working quite a bit.I kept failing in biology in 12th standard throughout the term including all the tests, midterm and mock board exam.

I have failed MANY TIMES and am proud to tell you that I will probably be failing more in the future. So admitting your mistakes or bad commitments then forgiving yourself would help release your stress in the first place. How after many ups and downs, I have had more chances to learn to acquire new skills to polish my old ones in cleaning up my own messes and others to control myself better. No failure made would up one's self-esteem and create more competitiveness as well as conflicts within one's own surroundings, and then certainly come more physical and mental sufferings.If yes,How did you handle that failure ?

Been there done that! I almost always run into the same situation with my current project. It is tiring yet fun filled tasks to enjoy myself though.... I've spent weeks building pieces of software that just didn't work the way I thought it would and had to do the whole thing over...
Everyone has, Eddie Van Halen didn't come out of the womb a guitar genius, Albert Einstein wasn't born knowing Special relativity. Trial and error is how we develop any talents we have. Babies crawl until they walk. you can look at failure one of 2 ways. 1. As a lack of ability and therefore a (failure) 2. A temporary lack of skill and an ultimate (attempt at success)
I don't know much about advanced degreesA PhD is an exercise in repeated failure until desperation drives to you try something you'd never normally do - and then you end up finding what works.
