6. Stay In The Present

By wandering in the past or focusing too much on the future, you will miss out on your present. Therefore, don’t wander in the past or focus on your future. Rather concentrate on what you are doing “now.”

By staying in the present you allow yourself to grow from your failure and overcome it rather than drowning in your own pain.
