Don’t Look Back

Fight the urge to look back at the past.  Looking back at the past, where you’ve been, whether good or bad, will cause you to miss the beauty of the opportunities ahead of you.  It’s easy to look back.  Too easy.  Too many people do it.

No matter where you have been, or where you are at right now, you need to look forward.  You can learn from the past, but you can’t stay there or keep looking back at it.

It takes courage to keep looking forward, but that is where the new opportunities are. Opportunities to be better personally and professionally.  Opportunities to positively impact others and help them to be better.

Don’t look back.  Keep looking forward so you can see where your journey will take you next.

I’m cheering for you.
