Change your mind

For a month (June and July) the world was practically paralyzed due to the World Cup of Soccer held in Russia.
Several teams could not meet the expectations of proclaiming Champions or at least reach the final stages of the event (meaning Semi Finals and Final). Teams like Brazil and Argentina were two of those who did not comply with the above mentioned.
It should be noted that, although in the case of these countries, some time ago they are not champions Brazil (2002) and Argentina (1986), between the two have a total of 7 Championships (Brazil with 5 and Argentina with 2) of the 21 editions of this event.
Faced with this "failure", comparisons emerge; that the representatives teams with Pele (Brazil) and Maradona (Argentina) were better than those of the present with Neymar (Brazil) and Messi (Argentina). Going into that thought that becomes a feeling of nostalgia, that "all past time was better."
In order to move forward in the present, towards a better future we have to leave behind the great burden of the past that overwhelms us. Finally, I would like to share the 15 Steps to find the positive side of failure :
1. Recognize that there is a big difference between mediocre people and those who succeed.
2. Learn a new definition of failure.
3. Eliminate the "I" from your failure.
4, Take action and reduce your fear.
5. Change your reaction to failure by accepting your responsibility.
6. Do not let external failure get inside you.
7. Say goodbye to yesterday.
8. Change yourself and your world will change.
9. Disregard yourself and start giving to others.
10. Seek benefit in every bad experience.
11. If you are successful on the first try, try something more difficult.
12. Learn from a bad experience and transform it into a good experience.
13. Work on the weakness that weaken it.
14. Understand that there is not much difference between failure and success.
15. Get up, recover and keep moving.
