I am proud of my past. And you should be proud of yours. But, believe it or not, this wasn’t always the case for me. I now realize that my previous experiences have allowed me to move towards my purpose. I crushed my negative consciousness by admitting the fact that I am going to have setbacks. The truth is, everyone will. We all will experience life’s bumps and bruises no matter how careful we plan. What counts though, is how we bounce back! Mistakes are pivotal in the purpose process. If you are not learning from your mistakes, you are migrating from the mission. Use the wisdom gained from your trials and win!
I’ll leave you with this. Continue to pursue your dreams – not feed your fear of failure. Use your story to inspire others. When your experiences teach you vital lessons, breathe in, let go of the hurt and hustle harder! How will you ever fully embrace your future while wallowing in a past that was purposely meant to make you stronger? Remember, your mishaps in life don’t define you, they refine you.
