As a Catholic, how do you cope when you fail in your professional life?

The Magister part comes in here ... as a secondary school teacher I can certainly say that there are good boys and girls who simply will not score As or Bs in their classes, and some who will certainly fail. To have an education system where everyone passes makes for a bad education system.

That's certainly fine. The question is only whether they did everything they could—whether they failed in their duty, not in their grades.

That said, it's a good comparison. With your work, or anything, really, one will often fail, but if he has not failed in his duty, there is no blame, and he needs to merely evaluate things and see if there are lessons to be learned. If he has, that is when he must repair in some way and learn the lessons.

Failure is an important key to success, and perhaps the best way of learning what is necessary to be truly successful.
