Focus on Moving Forward

Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer. – Denis Waitley

focus on the futureLife is kind of messy.  Things go wrong, and get messed up.  When that happens, I know my immediate reaction is to focus on everything that didn’t go according to plan.  Don’t get stuck focusing on what went wrong. Instead, focus on moving forward.  Figure out where you can go from here.

I know it’s hard, though.  Sometimes it seems like we’re hard wired to focus on our mistakes.  I know at least I do.  I beat myself up over them, and I get stuck in the past reliving them over and over again.  Don’t be like me, lol.  Mistakes happen, figure out what you did, what went wrong and how you can fix it or make it not happen again.  Then you focus on moving forward.

I have to tell you something.  We’re human beings.  We’re not perfect.  We’re messy, and wonderfully imperfect.  Instead of getting hung up on everything you think you do that is wrong think about all the great things you do every day.  And if a plan doesn’t go – well – according to plan, that’s okay too.  Embrace the mistake.  Who knows, something wonderful may come from it, and if it doesn’t, hey, that’s okay too.  Don’t get hung up on the past, focus on the future.
