How do you recover your confidence after you fail?

Focus on this quote by Michael Jordan: I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. https://www.forbes.com/quotes/11194/

Look at fail as F - first A - attempt I - in L - learning The question is not why you failed ? The question is what you learnt ? And how do you change to avoid that mistake again ?

By seeing it for what it really is - an opportunity to learn. Success requires failure. Failure is not terminal. And anyone who tells you they've never made a mistake just did.

Mistaking should build confidence - for your own learning and for others to learn it’s survivable. You can’t do great things without trying - and trying brings risk - and if you never fail, you’re not challenging yourself enough. Long story short - you should never lose your confidence when you fail.

Great comments here already, I will just add that your leadership can and should play a big part in creating an atmosphere that allows for failure by supporting the spirit of innovation.

A strong recovery is to find the resilience within you. To know more about it, you must read https://www.thefailureinstitute.com/blog/resilience/?mc_cid=2a825f32ab&;mc_eid=64a7aa82f2 As well as to find about Boris Cyrulnik’s work, since he is an expert in resilience. His insights will inspire you deeply as I did.

I try to capture everything I learned through the experience. I’ve learned more and matured more as a leader through failure, near failure and difficult problems. Ironically I’ve typically been rewarded professionally more for easy projects because leaders above me thought the problem was hard but they didn’t have the experience As long as you learn, and nobody was injured it’s a success

Honestly, I think you should have confidence in failing, first of all.  There is risk in everything we do every day.  Yesterday, I wrecked my brand new drone that I've been wanting for years.  Despite knowing my capabilities as a drone pilot, I still made a mistake.  It is a costly one, as I had two events coming up in the next 10 days that I won't be able to use it for now.  I'll still have confidence in my ability to fly it after it gets repaired, and I'll be more cognizant of the scenario that doomed it. So that's not so much a professional thing as it is a personal one.  I've had my share of spectacular failures in the work environment.  You have to take your lumps and move on.   I love the MJ quote.  He is as inspirational as they come. There's also the comment "it's not how many times you get knocked down, but how many you get back up." Be brutally honest with yourself.  Take your after-action assessment.  What was your role in the failure?  Were you over your head?  Will you make the same mistake again?  How do you make sure you don't?  Once you do these things, that should inspire the confidence to succeed next time.

Realize that failure means that you at least tried which means that you overcame so many other organizations that refused to act in case they failed. Also, failure of one team is validated learning for the entire organization. So, use that failure to gain a market advantage on your competitors Embrace failure. That is what separates successful organizations from the rest.
