Failure: a simple seven letters word but feared by most when it comes to facing it. When we talk about this, there are a lot of definitions for it, depending on the situation. The most common meanings are ‘lack of success’, ‘not able to achieve the desired goal’. When one comes across it, low self- esteem, low confidence, and lack of self-worth are commonly found. Failure is like a two-sided coin; one side is totally giving up once failed and having absolutely zero intention to get going. Whereas the other side is, getting up as a stronger and determined individual and achieve the goal in a much revised and better manner. The decision is entirely on you, which side of the coin would you rather be on. While the discussion on this continues, the coping mechanism to come out of this phase and perform efficiently is as much of the same importance. Coping means, putting in one own’s conscious effort to work on one’s personal matters to reduce anxiety, stress. In relation with failure, there are many coping mechanisms like accepting it and move on, or crying and running away etc. Different medical researchers recommend different coping mechanisms for failure according to the person as well as the situation they have faced the same in. This research paper contains about how different age groups define what is failure to them and cope with it. A survey has been conducted for the same which will be discussed in the following paper.
