It is a good thing to shoot for the moon, but to consider it a failure that you don't reach it on the first try, is not being hard on yourself, it is destructive.
Failure doesn't come from not succeeding in resolving a problem overnight. Failure comes when you give up on trying to find solutions or when you waste time beating up on yourself because you didn't sprout wings and fly.
Concentrated on what you did right, there are enough people standing in line already, ready to tell you the things you did wrong.

Honestly if you guys did a little research and read something about economic data you would see how wrong you are but since you only rely on an individual experience to understand the greater economy you will never have knowledge of why things are headed in the direction they are
