    I'd like to say I do something productive when I fail but for the most part I go over and over what I did wrong and get angry that I didn't do this or that instead.

    I don't really, I just think about it constantly until my mind physically can't deal with being depressed and then just goes numb.

    If you're talking about making a mistake, the best thing to do is analyse the reasons you made the mistake and make sure you never do it again. It's fine to make mistakes as we're humans not robots after all. The important thing is not to make the same mistake twice. But you can ensure you don't do that by learning from the first time you made it.

    If you're talking about failure that occurs through not being quite being good enough for something, that's a bit more difficult when it comes to taking a positive approach. You can take a similar approach to making an isolated mistake but I suppose it takes a longer time. If you fail in studying because your knowledge isn't up there you can try to improve your knowledge.

    The most important thing: be positive and look to the future!
