How to Handle a Big Loss or Failure

Soccer tips are important and here's a soccer tip to learn how to handle a big loss or failure. 

Have you ever lost to a team 5-0 you should have beat? Have you ever had the worst game ever and you wish it never happened? Have you missed a PK that could have won the game for your team? 

If you are a normal player you probably said yes to at least one of these questions. These moments, these failures, these losses, these are the negative moments in the game that happen to every player at every level; from youth to pro.

Pros mess up too. In the 2008 European Champions League final Manchester United played Chelsea. Chelsea team captain John Terry, one of the top players in the world, missed his PK, which caused his team to lose the final. He was devastated and crying on the field. On one of the world's biggest stages John Terry messed up.

John Terry is still one of the top defenders in the world and he clearly bounced back from that low point. This is just one example of a top pro bouncing back from a failure. Now let's talk about how you can too!


Key Points on How to Handle a Big Loss or Failure:
1. Swallow your pride and deal with the loss or failure on the day. Be upset, you have every right to be but make sure you are a classy loser and shake hands with the other team. 

2. Think about your individual and team performance. Learn from your mistakes and think about what you need to do better and what you need to practice on. 

3. Forget about it! Move on and start thinking about the future, not the past! You shouldn't be dwelling on your failures days and weeks after it has happened. Remind yourself a big loss or failure happens to everyone and don't beat yourself up about it because it won't be your last disappointment in your career. 

4. Have a great next game or practice! Pros in interviews after a big loss say they can't wait for the next game or next practice so they can play well and wipe the slate clean and forget about the loss. You should do the same! 

5. Tell yourself in your mind "I believe in it®" multiple times a day to keep your confidence high. Don't let one bad loss or failure bring your confidence and self-belief down. 


What Player Could Be Doing Wrong: 
If you are turning one bad loss or failure into multiple bad losses and failures then you are not handling the first loss right. If you are beating yourself up and constantly stressing about losses and failures that happened in the past you will continue to experience losses and failures in the future because you are not handling it right mentally. 

Stay positive; don't dwell on mistakes and failures in the past. You can't change them; you can only control your future now!
