Failure and weakness are painful, but can be harnessed to your advantage, Kevin Daum, a successful entrepreneur, writes for Inc.com. Three ways:

1.  Be fully accountable for them. Recognize your role in creating a problem and quickly rectify any damage.

2.  Create process around them. Be prepared to fail. Set specific plans for changing any behavior that will reduce the risk of failing the same way.

3.  Brag about them. Share the story with others. You’ll often get em­­pathetic feedback, not harsh judg­­­­ment.
