Your past experience

Your time has not been wasted and your efforts have not been in vain. Everything has brought you to where you are now, and this is a very good place to be.

From here, you can move forward in whatever direction you choose. Now, you can put your wisdom, your experience and even your regrets to positive, purposeful use.

The portion of your life over which you have full control begins right now. No matter where you’ve come from, now is your opportunity to choose precisely where you wish to go.

It’s easy to get caught up in thoughts of what could have been, or to fall into discouragement about what didn’t work out. Your best option, though, is to focus on the best of what can be and on enthusiastically stepping forward to make it happen.

You are surrounded by a universe that’s filled with great possibilities. Take all of your past experience and put it to work in creating a future of excellence and fulfillment.

Whatever the past has been, it has also been very good to you, because it has delivered you here. Now, take that good fortune and put it to good use.
