Let go of the past
It doesn't matter what kids called you in high school or what nasty thing someone said to you last week — that is no longer relevant. All you need to do today is move forward.

By deliberately choosing every step you take, you will feel more confident, excited, and focused on the discipline you need to achieve your goals. It comes down to two simple but critical questions:
What are the consequences of the choice I am making?
Will this choice bring me closer to my goals?
