Even a correct decision is wrong when it was taken too late.

Active, continuing involvement

Celebrate the good things but don’t let your celebration become tinged with arrogance. Enjoy your good fortune without allowing it to make you complacent.

In much the same way, when you lament the inevitable losses don’t let it fill you with intractable despair. Accept whatever difficulties may come while at the same time working to move toward more positive results.

Momentum is a powerful force, but that does not mean your current trajectory will continue indefinitely. Your active, continuing involvement has great power too.

So whatever yesterday looked like, make your actions today purposeful, positive, and productive. Whether your recent results have been favorable or not, there’s something to be learned from them, and useful responses you can choose.

What matters more than where you’ve been is what you do today. Let the past inform and inspire you without letting it immobilize or confine you.

Your choice is here, your choice is now, regardless of what has happened before. Make it a choice that propels your life in the direction you most want it to go.
