    If you want to become successful then failure must be your best friend

    My philosophy of life is this, "One should strive to maximise their outcome in the future".
    This implies a lot of things. First of all, it doesn't matter whether you succeed or fail, as long as you do the best you can possibly and achieve the best you can possibly achieve.
    Secondly, it doesn't matter what happened in the past, and it does't matter where you might be heading, as long as you know you're doing your absolute best.
    Thirdly, it's normal to feel bad about failure, but the sooner you get back to trying to maximise the positive outcome in the future, the sooner you feel happier.

    I disagree. If you were kicked in the head by a horse or Chuck Norris and become a dribbling retard as a result, your future wont be all that great.

    Some logic applies regards to where your heading (to or from space in a dodgy rocket). Apart from that I agree with what you said.

    Well yea of course it materially matters, but my point is that what's happened has happened, don't try to change it, only look for the future.

    Yep, same.

    The only way is to force yourself to pick yourself back up and carry on. Stewing will only bring more failure.

    Also, it's never failure if you learn something! For example I got EEUU in my AS levels 2 years ago BUT I learnt that I should start revision earlier, attend more lessons and push myself. Now I'm sitting waiting for A2 results. Don't get me wrong I'm still terrified of failing and very nearly didn't go to some of my exams but I forced myself.
