Como si no tuvieras memoria, como si no tuvieras un pasado

Hola a todos,

La frase en cuestión es del libro Cuenta contigo de Patricia Ramírez Loeffler.

Otro obstáculo que bloquea tu estado «emprendedor» puede ser tu pasado. Cuando has intentado algo y no te ha salido, tu memoria te recuerda que no eres capaz de conseguirlo y que ya fracasaste. No nos gusta fracasar, no nos gusta lidiar con las emociones negativas resultantes del error, así que nos cerramos a la oportunidad de intentarlo de nuevo. Si este es el motivo que bloquea tu estado, haz el siguiente ejercicio como si no tuvieras memoria, como si no tuvieras un pasado. Lo que buscamos es que un puñado de recuerdos no condicionen tu future.

El ejercicio consiste en seguir estos consejos para gestionar tu anterior fracaso:

1. Haz borrón y cuenta nueva. Anota tu fracaso en una hoja y rómpela, tírala o destrúyela. Como prefieras.
2. Acepta tu error: «¡Sí, me equivoco, I love fracasar!».
......

What does "haz el siguiente ejercicio como si no tuvieras memoria, como si no tuvieras un pasado" mean?

Do the following exercise to get rid of memories (negative memories) and the past?

Muchas gracias de antemano.

Haz el siguiente ejercicio como si no tuvieras memoria, como si no tuvieras un pasado. = Do the following exercise as if you had no memory, as if you had no past.
The directive calls for the usage of the past subjunctive mood.

Thank you, Rusty!

But how is it possible to do the exercise as if you had no memory/no past, if you have to write down your failure on a sheet of paper ("Anota tu fracaso en una hoja")?

Use your imagination. The author wants you to imagine yourself in that state.
