“You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”
If I followed/learned/remembered/put into practice even half of these various quotes, mantras, words of wisdom that I find (and occasionally post), my life would be much different.
Indeed, you can build on failure and mistakes. I do finally learn a few things from them, though. Closing the door on the past and not dwelling on the past can be another battle altogether. Doing the latter and not doing the former becomes a huge distraction on the present.
