Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.
--Leroy Satchel Paige
Lingering on events out of our past prevents us from living here and now. When we keep looking back, we cannot look ahead, which puts us in danger of missing opportunities or losing hope for better things to come.
When we make mistakes or do not achieve the success we'd anticipated, let's examine our actions at that moment, then take our lessons with us and move on. We are who we choose to be - successful, competent, wise, and wonderful. The future will become the present, so we need to anticipate and prepare for it.
