“The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the present. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.”– Dan Millman

The time to forget your past failures is now. The place to do it is right here, right where you are. Allow yourself to forget the past. The past is gone. There is nothing you can do about it. You can’t bring it back. No, you can’t.

Whatever may have happened to you in the past, let it go. Do not walk around with your past disappointments. It hurts!

The only thing you can do something about is NOW. The only place to start it is right here, right now. You can do something to change your present, but you can’t do anything to change your past. If that is the case, then why are you worrying yourself about what you cannot change?

To enjoy your life, you must do what you can to change your present. You must not worry yourself about your past failures. When you are always worrying yourself about your past, you become too focused on your failures. Stop doing that to yourself. You can’t change your past, but you can change yourself. That is what you should do. The choice is yours.
