When you clench your fist, no one can put anything in your hand, nor can your hand pick up anything.

All you’ve experienced

Your failed attempts have taught you crucial lessons. Those good intentions you never followed through on have given you an appreciation for the value of commitment.

Regrets born in your past provide inspiration and energy that you can put to good use. Now you can benefit from it all.

Not only can you expand upon whatever successes you’ve created. You’re also able to find wisdom and fresh determination in recalling those painful times when you’ve disappointed yourself.

From the richness of your life experience, today you can begin to take effective action. You have what it takes to continue doing so until you’ve achieved the results that truly matter to you.

Your past has played a significant role in the person you now are. Yet no matter how definitive that past has been, your future is not a foregone conclusion.

That future will be shaped by what you do today, drawing upon all you’ve experienced and all you know, using whatever you have. Now is your opportunity to make it the best you can imagine.
