Venus Williams  failed to win medal at the  2012 Olympics.  She suffered from depression after the loss. She was devastated by her poor play and struggled daily with her game. Venue "said" I needed to let go of the loss.  
1.  Forgive yourself and others
2.  Learn from your mistakes
3.  Find support -  Venus  went to her father.
4.  Find the upside of the loss 
5.  Plan your comeback 
6.  Write down some new goals
