People often go on the extreme point of thinking. They narrate a situation in two-way either it is a failure for us or successful. They tend to paint everything black and white which attracts an immense wave of negative thoughts. Exactly here, we make mistake. There is a space between failure and success.  The life is not a two-lane path but it has 3 ways. Whenever they are in problem, they must pick the 3rd lane which suggests going moderate.
