Leave the past behind

It’s easy to lament over past poor decisions.

The ones that cost you loads of money, or devalued your reputation, or set your life plan back a decade.

The problem isn’t what happened, it’s the label we attach to what happened that causes the sting.

Instead of viewing what happened as a catastrophe, look at it as a valuable learning lesson.

After all, you survived, and now you are wiser for the experience. Put that time in your life behind you where it belongs, and move forward with new information.

The world needs people like you. The ones who have dared to be different, failed spectacularly, and had the courage to start over.

It doesn’t matter if you get knocked down, it only matters if you get up again.
