Online: The art of failing

How to build self-confidence

Failing is something bad, at least that's what a lot of people think. You're brought up with the idea that certainty is necessary before you start something. Maybe that you 'lose face' big time with the people around you if you fail at something. That self-confidence is the basis for succeeding in life, and for achieving your goals. And that experience is a requirement for being able to face a challenge. Incorrect assumptions, as you'll experience in this learning journey.

How do you perceive failure? The idea of approaching failure with a sense of humor may seem strange or even unimaginable given your circumstances or environment. Simply discussing it might make you uncomfortable. You might view failure or making mistakes as a sign of weakness, which is something you definitely don't want to reveal. However, this doesn't alter the fact that you likely desire to address those unpleasant emotions. This online course can assist you in doing so.
