The most successful people in the world had to fail many times before they achieved the thing they were striving for. It is like Winston Churchill said: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” So we don’t have to be discouraged if something doesn’t turn out as planned, the important thing is to go on.
While we do that, we not only can learn from those mistakes but also just laugh at them as not all failures are so serious and detrimental. Sometimes they are just a result of miscommunication or maybe they lead to an even better outcome. Like these Halloween fails. There is not much to learn from them but they really can give a good laugh. So enjoy this list that Bored Panda collected from all over the internet!

If you are trying to do something, there is a good chance that you will encounter some bumps along the road and that is what will make you better as you will find out how to avoid them. You may try to DIY a Halloween costume and it can turn out to be nothing like you pictured it in your head, or, like some of the people in this list, you might not have realized you’re the only one who’s excited to celebrate it.
It might get frustrating or embarrassing, but in the end, you should be able to laugh it off and make sure that the next time you are more prepared and know exactly what you are doing.

Sure, fails that entered this list are not that serious and they probably didn’t have a big impact on anyone’s life. But being able to deal with failure regardless of whether it’s bigger or smaller is an important part of being human, because to make mistakes is human.
The first step to deal with failure is to acknowledge it and let yourself feel all the emotions that come with it. Ignoring the anxiety, embarrassment, sadness or anger may lead to further issues so allowing yourself to analyze your feelings will help you take proper measures to make yourself feel better.

It can be talking to a friend and just venting, going for a walk or taking a bubble bath. Be careful not to indulge in unhealthy coping methods like eating junk food or drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.
Also, it is important to not allow those negative emotions to take over. If it was a mistake that really affected your life, you may develop a fear of taking on the task that led to that mistake to ensure you won’t fail again.

This sentiment is understandable but this kind of solution may be restricting. If you are in need of inspiration, just look up the most successful people in the world or inventors whose innovations changed our lives completely.
Take J. K. Rowling, who went to 12 different publishing houses with Harry Potter before Bloomsbury accepted it and released it in 1997. And we all know how that went. If you need another example, the actress Jennifer Aniston, who is considered to be one of the biggest celebrities was struggling at first. She had to work part-time jobs like a telemarketer, waitress and bike messenger at the beginning of her career as the shows she was in weren’t successful.

Coming back to what Churchill said, failure is not the end, you just have to find another way and not lose the enthusiasm of trying. Besides, if people always did well in everything they started, we wouldn’t have this hilarious list.
