Strength to move forward

Every fault you admit can challenge you to improve yourself. Every weakness you embrace you can proceed to transform into a strength.

The failures you acknowledge illuminate opportunities for success. Your mistakes and their consequences teach you how to make better choices.

Any regret you have, as painful as it may be, serves a positive purpose. It’s an effective reminder not to create more regrets.

Certainly you don’t want to wallow in the negative aspects of your past or present. But you don’t want to completely ignore them either.

Whatever you’ve done or failed to do that has held you back can now point you in a more positive direction going forward. The costly price you’ve paid for your experience can now be transformed into useful value.

Never does your past have to be an excuse for a dismal future. For right now you can choose, you can act, you can improve, transforming whatever has held you back into new strength to move forward.

— Ralph Marston
