“The more we reach for the stars, the harder it is to get ourselves off the ground.”
Losses can be attributed to a lack of focus on what is truly important. This may be due to reliving past mistakes or focusing on future choices. Both cases are situations in which you have no control - the past is over and the future is unknown. Focusing on the past or future will cause you to miss the present moment.
The present is in your control. Work hard at what you can do right now and you will get the results you desire.
Live in the present.
