Shut out all of your past except that which will help you weather your tomorrows.

- William Osler, Canadian physician

Remembering the good times, learning from the bad

Memory can be used for good or for evil. If you use your past as a source of learning, it's worth remembering. If, however, all you do is mull over your mistakes and punish yourself for your failures, it's a waste of time. Rehashing failure can paralyze you in mortal fear of making another mistake, which, of course, just makes the feeling worse and practically guarantees future letdowns. The key to making meaningful changes is to pay more attention to the future than to the past. Have you ever noticed that the best athletes also have the shortest and most selective memories? Instead of dwelling on a missed shot or a flawed dive, they concentrate on making corrections and getting the next one right. It's as if the failed attempt never happened. It's forgotten and they don't fear trying again. If you mess up, even in an epic, life-altering way, work hard to leave it behind and concentrate on the possibilities yet to come. Tomorrow is much brighter when it's n ot smeared with a fixation on yesterday.

"Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
- St. Francis of Assisi

"Why are you going to choose failure when success is an option?" ~ Jillian Michaels

"Wisdom has two parts: 1) having a lot to say, and 2) not saying it." ~anonymous

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure. ~Colin Powell

If you want to go fast go alone. If you want to go far, go together. ~African proverb

Do not be afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still. ~ Chinese Proverb

Finish each day and be done with it. Some blunders and absurdities may have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
