Use your Experience.
Do you spend your life focusing on all that was and all that could have been? Do you allow your days to be seasoned with regret because things have not turned out as you expected? What is the cost of living in the past? How does it serve you?
Our life is a gift that we can easily take for granted. It is easy to get caught up in the momentum necessary for existence at the expense of living. Don't allow the means to take priority over the end. For what are you living? If the breadth of the question is overwhelming for you, think in terms of today. What is your mission for today? Use all of the rich experiences and the lessons of your past to guide you to a smoother path to your future.
Success or sabotage? Appreciation for all experience is the expressway to greater joy and success. Don't allow yourself to get caught up in thoughts of what might have been.
Is this going to be an incredible day? Don't wait until it is over to decide.
