Turn Your Past Into An Asset

The present is ephemeral and the future is non-existent. 
Both are largely out of our control. 
The past however, is pristine and vast. 
It gives context to the present and shapes your actions in the future. 
Leverage it fully. 

Learn from past behaviors.
There is no better catalogue of data customized to you. 
Use it as motivation. 
Flip negative events to positive, with gratefulness and ingenuity. 
Be thankful for what you have. 
Realize that what you have now was not predetermined. 

Your past is vast and ever expanding. 
It’s one of your greatest assets. 
Never leave it idle or let it use regret to become your master.
Instead see it objectively and use it as a fire wood for your present and future.
