Jim must have had this one set up for me. This quote deals with something that I've had to try and deal with my whole life and I really only realized that fact probably a few years ago. It's been said many times, by many different people that we are our own worst enemy. Out of all the awful and negative things that others can say about us - what we say to ourselves can do so much more damage.
I've learned over the years how true this is. Recently I've been trying to change that in my life and I feel that it's starting to help. What I am thinking and saying to myself, does indeed make a difference. I guess I find myself reflecting on this more and more due to my age. I just turned 47 and there comes a time where you start looking back on your life and wonder about choices and decisions and how they affected how you got to where you are. I've done plenty of that for sure. But like the quote says - it's about the next opportunity, the next chance to do something great. So making that chang-over from living in the past, regreting things, etc., to LEARNING from the past I think is a huge deal.
Sticking to things, not quitting (which I've done plenty of in my life), finishing things off is all part of being ready for the next opportunity are the important points to focus on. What can I learn from your thoughts on this quote? How does this quote connect with you?
