Do you focus more on your success or failure?

Lately, many things have no been going my way. I tend to focus on this. A part of it may be I want to learn from my failures. Sometimes, I find myself more fouced on all the things I've done wrong or couldn't get. In these times, I can not focus on my achievements. Do you focus more on your successes or failures?

I make the most of my successes and ignore anyfailure as they don't matter,no matter what ever goes wrong you can normally put it right some way,and if you cannot put it right just forget about it,life is too short.

interesting topic. There is a saying: "we best learn from our mistakes." Perhaps we should focus on our mistakes so that we do better next time. Perhaps to focus one's successes may not be as useful on focusing on one's mistakes. However, it seems natural for us to focus on our successes because it feels good. History seems to show that those who "sat on their laurels" ended up disadvantaged ... Personally, I believe in humility; that no matter how high we "feel" we have rsen to, there is always the calling to be better... There is a saying: "any one who does not fear making mistakes and learns quickly to do what is right or what is even better will inevitably attract success..." Cheers.
