"It is a cardinal rule to not self-pity, because it will dissolve your resolution. Don’t take it against yourself if you have done something the wrong way, or have failed the first time. Remember that there is always an opportunity to correct things in the future. Always look ahead and never ponder on “could have” or “should have” but rather “I can” do it now. Failure is just a hurdle we must overcome but if all of our focus stays on the hurdle, we’ll never be able to see what lies ahead. Don’t keep yourself down, but rather get up and get going; success lies ahead."
