“You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.” – Unknown
This is a great quote. I saw it on Pinterest and pinned it to my “Words to Live By” Board. It’s a great quote but I don’t think about it in terms of reading and chapters. To me, it’s about thinking forward or thinking backward. Are you a backward thinker or a forward thinker? Re-reading the last chapter is focusing on the past and the mistakes you’ve made. Stop that! You can stay stuck in the past or more on. You can’t change the past so the choice is clear … or it should be. Be a forward thinker. What are your GOALS, not your MISTAKES? Where do you want to be in the future? How do you get there? Make a plan. Focus on that. Start the next chapter.
Thanks for reading my blog!
