Every second you dwell on the past you steal from your future. Every minute you spend focusing on the problems you take away from finding your solutions. And thinking about all those things that you wish never happened to you is actually blocking all the things you want to happen from entering into your life.
It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.Bill Gates
I shouldn’t have done that!!
You see, some of us, being the perfectionists that we are, tend to beat ourselves up over our mistakes. “I shouldn’t have done that,” Or, “I was so stupid. I wish I did things differently”. However, What we don’t realize is that mistakes define us–not success. Our mistakes make us stronger, wiser, and more conscious. So never treat all those past experiences as “mistakes” rather they were learning experiences. They were merely life lessons to help us to grow.
So clearly, It makes no sense to worry about past incidents unless you want to experience them for a second time. Instead, accept your weakness and use the lessons you have learned from your past to rise to a whole new level of awareness and enlightenment.
If you have suffered more than your fair share of difficulties in life, perhaps you are being prepared to serve some greater purpose. Use these life lessons to fuel your future growth. Remember, happy people have often experienced as many hardships as those who are unhappy. What sets them apart is the way they handle those adversities.
And understand that if you have failed more than others, that means, you are living more completely than others. Those who take more chances and dare to be more and do more than others will naturally experience more failures.
If I talk about myself, I would rather have the bravery to try something and then fail than never to have tried it at all.
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.Robert F. Kennedy
