We’ve only got right now.
Yesterday is gone forever.
Tomorrow is still out of reach.
The only time we’ve got to take action is right now.
Stop crying over your past. Everyone has had those moments in the past where they failed. Mistakes were made and even worse, regrets.
Right now you can choose to either:
- Cry like a baby over your past failures or;
- Learn your lessons from past mistakes so that you do not repeat them. Instead, you improve as you propel forward in your life.
Sounds easy to me which one you should choose.
The past is gone forever. Use the past to learn and refine your approach.
What have you done wrong that needs to be changed going forward? What positive things can you take from the past that you should keep?
Then there’s the uncertain future.
