Christine Lagarde Shares The Best Way To Overcome Failure

One of the biggest barriers both men and women face in their careers today is the internal struggle with past failures -- but even the most accomplished individuals experience low points from time to time.

International Monetary Fund's managing director Christine Lagarde joined Arianna Huffington on HuffPost Live to share advice that helped her cope with her own failures along the path to success.

"Accept it," Lagarde said. "Don't feel ashamed. Learn from it, and bounce back. Move on. I know it's easier said than done, but I've gone through my lot of failures myself and I think the best way is to get a grip on yourself and reflect on why you failed, and then just move on."

Watch the full HuffPost Live clip above to hear more of Lagarde's tips for facing your failures.
