How You Rise From Failure, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


(March 21st to April 19th)

You rise from failure by still showing up day after day no matter how disheartened or discouraged you feel, because you know there is no adventure and no growth without trial and error.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You rise from failure by being patient with yourself and accepting that you’re not going to become great at something overnight, and by persistently working a little bit harder every single day to get even just a little bit better.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You rise from failure by being adaptable to change and by still putting yourself out there even if you feel nervous and like you’re outside of your comfort zone.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You rise from failure by trusting your gut, having faith in yourself, and learning to be proud of yourself even if you didn’t succeed – because you still learned something and experienced growth.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You rise from failure by following good advice (even if it means taking the harder route), and by focusing on the infinite number of possibilities that are still out there for you – instead of obsessing over the one way it didn’t work for you.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You rise from failure by focusing on how you can specifically use this experience to improve for next time, and by analyzing what knowledge you’ve gleaned from this ‘failure’ that can be of use to you in completely unrelated undertakings in the future.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You rise from failure by allowing it to make you into more of a well-rounded person, and by using it as a way to bond with and learn from others who have gone through something similar.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You rise from failure by zeroing in on the details of how this can make you better, stronger, or more prepared in the future, and by moving on and plunging ahead while still taking responsibility for your actions.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You rise from failure by looking on the bright side of this experience (you learned something, you discovered a better path, you met someone important to you, etc) and by ruminating on how different of a person you would be if you hadn’t gone through this difficult challenge.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You rise from failure by dealing with the aftermath of it practically and logically, and by challenging yourself to do better next time.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You rise from failure by being honest with yourself and dealing with your feelings head-on, and by coming up with a ton of new ways that you can use this defeat to your advantage in some bizarre manner.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You rise from failure by going easy on yourself, acknowledging your mistake, and deciding for yourself how you’re going to let this affect your future decision-making. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
