"Always try to get over failure quickly. Learn from it. Study how you contributed to it. If you are responsible for it, own up to it. Through others may have greater responsibility for it than you do, don’t look for that as an escape hatch. Once you have analyzed what went wrong and what you did wrong, internalize the lessons and then move on. As always, drive through life looking through the front windshield and not the rearview mirror. ... Learn and move on."
General Colin L. Powell
