Success or failure. Lose or Win. It's all in how you see things.
You are probably familiar with the bible verse that states,
"As a man thinks in his heart, so is he."
If your are self-limiting, then you are also limiting what you believe others are capable of doing,
limiting what God can do, and therefore, creating a limited outlook on your purpose.
What could you be manifesting in your life if you decided to believe your mistakes, missteps, years spent learning, could serve your right now?
What if we didn't spend energy winding back the clock of our minds and past self, to muse over "lost time" only for us to default back to today, keeping us perpetually at the starting point?
What we "did" yesterday is only relevant to what we "do" with those past experiences today.
Make sure you let the next tidal wave life brings to you serve to challenge you, wash you over and renew you.
Then rise ready to believe in your purpose and turn your actions toward commitment to fulfilling it!
