Don’t waste your time on the past

Man Standing on Mountain Against Sky

Don’t waste your time on what happened yesterday. It is time to focus on the future. Don’t waste your time dwelling on what has happened. It will not help you. It will harm you. Don’t waste your time, it is all that you have on earth. If don’t manage your time well, you will miss a lot in life. Time is your life. Your life is time. Take care of it!

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.” —- J. R. R. Tolkien

Instead of beating yourself up for the mistakes you made in the past, learn from them. You will learn from failure more than you will learn from success. Don’t allow what happened in the past to dominate your mind. You get out what you keep in your mind. Keep your mind healthy. A sick mind is a sick person. A healthy mind is a healthy person. Why is it important to keep the mind healthy?

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater their power to harm us.”—- Voltaire

Because what you think is what you will become. If you think positively about your past, you will generate positive energy. If you think negatively about your past, you will generate negative energy. Also, if you keep thinking about your past misfortunes, you will lose sight of the opportunities before you. It will prevent you from focusing on the moment. The moment is what is going to help grow. Learn from your past mistakes, and focus on how you will transfer what you have learned into your future dealings. Further, if you spend your time thinking about your mistakes, you are creating or feeding the negative thoughts in your mind, which prevent you from having a happy life. 

If you want to be a happy person, stop living in the past. Accept the mistakes you have made in the past, learn from them , and move on.
