regrets a waste of time

“You always pass failure on the way to success.” -  Mickey Rooney

Failure is inevitable if we are to succeed in life. Unfortunately, many people do not know how to overcome failure, and they are stopped by it when they encounter one. The ability to overcome failure is one big difference between successful and mediocre people. After all, we should pass failure on the way to success, so it is the ability to pass it that makes the difference between those who eventually reach success and those who don’t.

So, knowing that overcoming failure is essential, what should we do? Here are some tips to help you overcome failure:

1. Rise up and don’t regret; you have spent your time wisely

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
George Bernard Shaw

When we fail, we might be tempted to think that we have wasted our time and thus regret it. But that’s should not be the case. The fact that you have done something is much better than doing nothing. Many people who despise persons who fail never do anything themselves. Rise up and move on. The regret lies not in doing, but in not doing.

2. Understand that failure is there to bring you wisdom

Good people are good because they’ve come to wisdom through failure.
William Saroyan

Failure is there not without a reason. It’s there to give you the wisdom you need to succeed. Each failure you encounter increases your wisdom and brings you one step closer to success. If you have this mindset, you will see failure differently. You will see each failure as an opportunity to learn.

3. Learn as much as possible from the failure

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
Albert Einstein

While failure brings you wisdom, how much wisdom you will get depends entirely on your ability to harvest it. So don’t waste the opportunity to learn; harvest wisdom as much as possible from the failure. If you fail to do this, you may waste a lot of time by repeating the same mistakes in the future.

4. Don’t give up; maybe you are only one step away from success

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Thomas A. Edison

The thought of giving up is tempting, especially when we have failed over and over again. But who knows that maybe you are only one step away from success? Will you waste the long journey you have passed when you are already so close to your destination?

So hold on tight and don’t give up. Thomas Edison failed thousands of times to perfect the light bulb. Heknew what it means not to give up.

5. Maintain your enthusiasm

Not only you should keep on trying, you should also do it with the same level of enthusiasm as when you first began. Otherwise your subsequent effort will have less and less power.

So how do you maintain enthusiasm? One good way is by realizing that you are now one step closer to success thanks to the lessons you learn. There’s no reason not to be enthusiastic when you are getting closer to success. Another way is to keep your mind on the destination, which brings us to the next point.

6. Keep dreaming big dreams

Always have your destination in mind; keep dreaming your big dreams. Spend time to visualize them and let the dreams energize you. Let them make you passionate and enthusiastic. Once you cease dreaming, soon you will also lose your energy and be back to mediocrity. To overcome all the obstacles you encounter you always need a greater why, and that why is provided by your dreams.

7. Keep your confidence in yourself

Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.
Belva Davis

Keep your confidence in yourself despite the failure. Of course, you need to put a lot of effort and learn as much as possible from the failure, but you have the ability to make your dream come true. Many people who achieve great undertakings have no special trait. They are just ordinary people with extraordinary attitude. Let’s be one of them.


Thinking something can make it true. Wanting something can make it real. And I didn’t regret it anymore. I’d wasted so much time wishing I could be different, wishing I could change things, change myself. If given the chance, I would’ve shed myself and become a different girl. Slipped on a name like Clara or Mary, docile and gentle and smiling and kind. I thought it would be easier to be someone else than to be who I was becoming, but I didn’t think that anymore. The girl who wanted those things had died with Rachel, buried under the asylum I brought down. And I realized now, for the first time, really, that I didn’t miss her.


It’s just a simple picture, but how will the world react to it?

(fml i used 3 fuckin hours to do this gosh….) I didn’t even know all these shits just waste my life so much… but it’s worth it tho~ and btw, Dispatch being Dispatch again like they literally use couple items to state someone is dating..pfft way to go Dispatch. and maybe i failed at doing the sasaeng’s ver. but it’s okay cause i ain’t a sasaeng so i can’t imagine sasaeng’s thought

When your friends are buying starter homes with their accomplishments
Drinking at a house show can feel childish and embarrassing
With people glaring because despite what the advertisements said:
Malt liquor doesn’t make you young.

I did not waste my time being high. I enjoyed my time, what i didn’t enjoy I learned from.  That doesn’t sound like time wasted to me.
—  undated journal entry
The best day of my life was when I realized I wanted to love myself.  Because I will always be there even when others are not. I cannot leave myself. I cannot abandon my own structure or being for it is my vessel. It is never a waste of time or energy. I will never regret all the days I spent and continue to spend learning to love every inch of myself. When I crawl into bed at night I will always be there. Lovers, friends, people may come and go but I will always be there to hold myself while I cry. To bandage up the wounds. To scrub myself clean. To brush my own hair. To look in the mirror and tell myself I did my best and I do my best every day. When I realized if no one else can be there I can be there.  If you feel you deserve better than it’s time to be the better you deserve. So when your heartbreaks you know that you are still full and worthy of all of your own love. You are worthy of your own love.

Silverflint Domestic AU: Inspired by @mrbarrow‘s awesome Domestic AU gifset. Silver and Flint go back to Miranda’s house and make a peaceful life there with good books, plenty of food, and a comfortable bed. They go fishing, tell each other stories, and tend Miranda’s vegetable garden. It should be too quiet, too sedate, but they’re both so tired of fighting and pretending that it’s only a relief. They’re safe and comfortable and happy together, and finally James can return Flint to the sea and become himself again. 

(Oh, and of course Silver comes home one day with a parrot and Flint is far less than impressed, but his irritation only makes Silver more pleased with his impulse purchase.)

The Greatest Lessons I've Learned

1. Be happy on your own. Don’t look to anyone to make you happy. You don’t need anyone to fulfill your life.

2. Money is not everything but it is beneficial to have. Money can not make you happy and will not fix all your problems but without money, you may/will have struggles.

3. Regrets are a waste of time. No matter what the situation is, having regrets about it will not change the past. Learn from it and move on.

4. Karma is a bitch. Just be nice, treat others well and don’t do anything that will come back and bite you in the ass.

5. Whatever you are going through will pass. If this is your lowest point, just know that you can only go up from here.
