Wherever you’re headed, the only way to get there is to move forward. If you have a dream, a goal, or a plan, you can’t get there by going back in time. Oh, you can revisit the past. You can consider what you’ve learned and incorporate that into your wayfinding plan. You can understand if you’ve had patterns of behaviour that have been holding you back. Getting stuck or weighed down by your mistakes, though? That’s no use to you at all.
Deal with what you must deal with. Maybe you need to grow, or find a coach to help you through issues you have to face. Perhaps you have amends to make. Don’t delay, just get those over with, too. People may or may not accept your apology – remember that your timeline is not the same as theirs. Do the work, and trust that it will play out as it should. Once you’ve done that, move forward with confidence. Second-guessing is simply allowing our old friends fear and doubt to cloud your perfectly-good judgement. For the most part, you’ll be presented with multiple opportunities for course correction. So start, and take that first step. The sooner you do, the sooner you’ll be on your way.
