Move Past the Past
Every leader has made mistakes. All of us have something in our past that, if we had to do it all over again, we wouldn’t! No matter how far you go in life or how successful you become, every now and then somebody from your past takes that thing you thought was behind you and puts it in your face. Often that somebody is you!
Perseverating on mistakes of the past makes you a hostage to regret. Don’t make the past an indicator for the future. We all wish some things had happened differently. There are events in our past we wish even God did not know about. But, that was then and this is now. So that bad thing you did long ago—it’s over. And the bad thing that was done to you—it’s over, too. Who you were back then is not who you are right now. It’s a new day and you are a new person. Move on! Let people see the change in you. That’s leadership for today!
