A failure is nobody else but anyone who fails to accomplish/complete whatever he/she has started already.

So from now onward, endeavour by all means to accomplish/complete whatever you've left unfinished/unaccomplished all these while. Never forget, refusing to do just that will automatically make you a failure.
