One of the most important keys to moving towards the great future in store for you is learning how to overcome the disappointments in your life. Because disappointments can pose such formidable obstacles to letting go of the past, you have to deal with them to have any chance at developing your full potential.
Defeating disappointments and letting go of the past are flip sides of the same coin, especially when you are disappointed in yourself. When you do something wrong, don’t hold onto it and beat yourself up about it. Admit it, seek forgiveness, and move on. Don’t dwell on your mistakes, failures, hurts, pains, and sins.
When you suffer a loss, nobody expects you to be an impenetrable rock. When you experience failure, it’s natural to feel remorse or sorrow. That’ s the way we are made by our creator. But you must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, “I don’t care how hard this is, I am not going to let this get the best of me.”
Don’t live in regret, remorse, or sorrow, they will only interfere with your faith. Faith must always be a present-tense reality, not a distant memory. Turn those scars into stars and you will be living your very best life.
