I like to call a failure a failure—without denial, and without glorification.  If I feel it might be constructive, I’ll indulge in a short (five minutes seems appropriate) period where I berate myself, but from what I’ve seen, viewing a failure as some romantic anecdote where I demonstrated toughness, or some catastrophic loss where all is lost, ignores the potential gift that hides within it.  

I believe failures are opportunities to expose shortcomings—whether they originate from lack of capability or just plain old ignorance—which arm me with knowledge I can use on my next endeavor.
