When you’re faced with a challenge in life the significance of your past achievements can be erased in a matter of seconds. At that moment, the only thing that counts is the person you are in the present.
We are not defined by our past success, or even our failures. The same way I am no better than anyone for the things I have been able to achieve, I am also no worse than anyone for some of my failures. At the end of the day, it is all about what you have learned and how you’re taking control to improve your life.
Starting today, January 1st, I am moving forward with a clean slate. I am discrediting the level of success I have achieved and working harder than ever before to win it back. I am also forgiving myself for the moments I’m not proud of.
Today I am strong. I am experienced, but still very far from perfect. I am renewed and ready to conquer new challenges in the future.
