Find a New Goal Don't dwell in the past. The best way to get out of a rut is to start building momentum again. Get a new goal or pursuit. A new challenge will get you to stop thinking about your failure and get you to focus on something positive. A new goal will also give the opportunity for future successes instead of dwelling on a current stumble.The author also recommends building a support base (peers, mentors, etc.), being humble, and figuring out what the bad experience has taught you.
