The more you stay stuck in the past, the harder it is to move on to the future. You get stuck in a cycle where you become your own worst enemy. You hold on to feelings that make you angry or sad, not leaving enough room for true happiness. The past is only meant to serve as a lesson so that you can live a better present.

2. Failure doesn’t make them give up.

3. They don’t waste time.

4. They don’t wallow in self-pity.

5. They accept change with open arms.

6. They don’t let themselves make the same mistakes over and over again.
