Its absolutely necessary not to allow our past mistakes enslave us. Instead it should guide us to a successful future. It doesn’t matter how dark they were.
Lessons learnt from those behaviours that once brought us down should help us in to navigating to our successful future.
That company of friends we kept that derailed us should be an eye openner when we chose our new friends.
Temptations that brought us to our knees should be a reference as we match to our future.
In totality our past should not define us. It’s worth noting that most successful people in the world over have had many mistakes than average men. The difference however, is that they never let those mistakes define who they are.
