Forgive yourself



Forgive yourself.

Yes, you've made mistakes, we all have. 

We're human.  

You forgive everyone else for their mistakes, but do you forgive yourself? 

I encourage you to seriously consider this concept. Your past can be experiences or dead weight. This depends entirely on how you decide to look at it.  If you look at it as situations you've overcome, then it's experiences. If you constantly think about the things you've done and let that deter you from doing things now, it's simply dead...unnecessary... weight. Don't become a hostage to your past by always reliving your mistakes and beating yourself down for making them. Mistakes are parts of life and proof you're living. Don't remind yourself of what should've, could've or would've been. You certainly can't change the past, but you can determine what happens from here on out. Which would you rather use your energy for?

Here's the "skinny." Your past does not dictate your future. Forgive your former self..you're not them anymore. The mere fact of you reading this proves that. 

You're growing right now. Focus on where you are going, not where you are now or have been. Remember that you hold the key to shape your life and your future, but you can't get there by holding on to your past. Learn from it, but move on. The best times of your life are waiting for you.

To your success....and forgiveness:)

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
