Move Forward

You’re broke. You’re fat. You’re marriage is a mess. You’re kids are headed down the wrong path. You hate your job. Or you have no job. You’re lonely. You’re lost. Your life stinks.


It’s one or a combination of these 3 reasons:

  • It’s your fault.
  • It’s someone else’s fault.
  • It’s no one’s fault.

If your situation is partially or wholly your fault, learn from your mistakes and move forward. If your situation is partially or wholly someone else’s fault, forgive and move forward. If your situation seems like bad luck – health problems, natural disaster, etc – accept it and move forward.

Are you hearing a theme?

That’s because it doesn’t matter how we got where we are. The best response is the same… move forward.

Usually, when we spend a lot of time explaining how we got where we are, what we’re really doing is justifying staying where we are.

It doesn’t matter how you got here. That’s in the past.

Even if you’re not responsible for where you are, you are responsible for where you go next.

Are you going to keep explaining how you got here? Or are you going to move forward?
