Don’t measure your future by your past, if you do this you will fail in any endeavor you journey towards.
Instead, see your past as a stepping stone preparing you for take-off. And the time spent till now as the time you needed for creating your definite purpose of where you will be heading now. Your past was your training time to shape your character in the form you need in order to reach the next step of your life.
And when you have achieved peace with your past and look forward to the future, never say to yourself:
“I will do my best”. It will not give you the energy you need when you are trying to accomplish your goals, dreams and life purpose.
Instead say to yourself: “I am going to do this and I (“… your name …”) can depend on me that it will be done”. That’s the difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to do it.
No one is ready for a thing until they have made up their mind with definite purpose that this is what they must do to place the next piece of the puzzle, of their life together.
