Shed your past.
There is no real ‘failure’ in our life. Something you did becomes a failure only if you recognize it as a failure.
But what’s the point of accepting something as a failure? A sense of guilt often paralyzes us and prevent us from taking a bold action to turn things around.
The purpose of accepting a failure is not to beat yourself up; it is to learn lessons from what you did. No one wants to fail, and no one likes failing. But if you faithfully accept a failure, it becomes a precious experience of life—that you can benefit from for the rest of your life.
