Startup Tip #73: Put the past behind you

tumblr_mbfou9AWJ31qzqdem

We have all made mistakes in life.

We all have regrets.

The difference between those that recover to go on to success, and those that don’t, is the ability to put the mistakes behind them and move forward.

Stop wallowing, flagellating, and ruminating.

What is done is done. Triumphs or disasters, wins and failures, successes and mistakes.

Pause, reflect, then move on.

Forgive others.

Most importantly forgive yourself and keep trying your best.

In building something worthwhile, you will make mistakes.

The key is to make new mistakes, not the same mistakes over and over again. Fail forward.

Keep moving forward.
