New consequences

You can’t go back in time and erase your past mistakes. But you can go forward and make sure you don’t repeat them.

Although regret is painful, that pain has a useful, positive purpose. It’s a constant reminder that your choices have very real consequences.

Today you have the opportunity to stop tomorrow’s regrets before they happen. Today you can line up future consequences in your favor.

Yes, you made some regrettable choices and you’re living with the results of those choices. Yet you’re now in position to reap some value from your mistakes.

Decide to transform the lingering pain of regret into a fresh sense of determination. After all, you’re paying the price for your past mistakes so you might as well claim their benefits.

Whatever regrets were born in your past, let them guide you now to a more positive future. New consequences are coming, so do all you can to make them the best.

— Ralph Marston
