How to Succeed, Seize the Present!
Many people spend too much time in the past and in the “junkyard of regret.” People focus too much energy on what could have been, should have been, and might have been. Many people feel that by reliving the past, they can change it. Unfortunately, you cannot change the past. One must learn to live in the present which is the greatest gift from God. The further you live in the past, the further you are from the “present” opportunities. Opportunities wait for no one, so you must live in the present or miss out on “golden” opportunities from God.
The only thing you can do is learn from your past and let past lessons become new opportunities for you. One cannot change what happened in the past, but you can start over with a clean slate. So let the past go, focus on the present, seize every new opportunity, and live your life.
