“Never regret yesterday.” Free yourself from all doubts. Free yourself from all disappointments. Free yourself from all past mistakes. The time to do it for yourself is NOW!

If you want to enjoy the moment, the present, you must live in the moment. You should forget your past mistakes. You should focus on what is going in your life right now. Let yesterday be yesterday. Let today be today. And let tomorrow be tomorrow. Never regret yesterday. Enjoy today. And prepare for tomorrow.

Free yourself from what you cannot do. Free yourself from all fears. You have a life to live. You have relationships to build. You have yourself to conquer. You have your goals to pursue. You have your dreams to achieve. You have your soul to protect. To do that, you must free yourself from your past failures. You must prepare yourself for bigger, greater things to happen for you, not to you.

You can achieve things. You can do things. But you must free your soul from your self-designed prison. Free yourself. Because when you continue to live your life in the past, you won’t succeed in the present. When you continue to live in the past, you won’t enjoy the moment. And if you are not enjoying the moment, you are wasting the moment. Do not waste your moment. That is why you should enjoy your life every day. And that is also why you should never regret yesterday. It is gone.

The Golden Opportunity You Are Seeking Is In Yourself Alone

“The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.”- Orison Swett Marden

There are opportunities everywhere. Your opportunity is not in your environment. It is not in your house. It is not in your “luck or chance.” The life you are seeking, the growth you are seeking, the happiness you are seeking, the love you are seeking, the togetherness you are seeking is in you. It is in your soul. It is in your suffering. It is in the dark.

When you listen to your suffering, you can learn a lot from it. The Scripture says, “And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character and hope.”

The opportunity you are looking for is not in your environment. It is in your suffering. It is in your character. It is in hope. So whenever you are faced with problems, you should be happy for facing them. Instead of running away from your problems, why not use the opportunity to connect with yourself, to bring out the best in yourself, to love yourself even more. Why not? What are you waiting for?

Robert Collier was right when he said, “In every adversity there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage. In every defeat is a lesson showing you how to win the victory next time.” Whatever you are going through, it is not here to stop you from reaching your goals. Do not ignore your suffering. It has a lot to teach you. All you need to do is to just make room for it to happen. It is your responsibility to do it for yourself, for your future. Do not limit your life. You have a goal to achieve. You have your life to live. And to do that, you need to leave your safe zone. You need to challenge yourself. The only way to get your opportunity is to make sure that your feelings about your opportunity never defeat you. Because if you allow your emotions to control you, you miss your golden opportunity. Do not miss it.
