Living in the Past, Limit your Future

It is important not to let living in the past limit your future. Retroactive existence can significantly retard future progress and dampen your outlook by blinding you to all of life's opportunities. Do not narrow future horizons by letting the demons of your past haunt your present. Avoid dwelling on past mistakes and regrettable decisions that can prevent you from being the best person you can possibly become.

Instead, adopt an attitude of determination to turn today's stumbling blocks into the foundations of a solid tomorrow. Better visualization of ever-widening doors on a brighter future requires increasing blindness to those that have firmly shut behind us. Although change can be somewhat frightening, we should never let irrational fear stand in the way of future growth. Instead of struggling to keep a tight grip on what has already happened, we must struggle to relinquish destructive links to past mistakes.
