Stop feeling remorseful about the time you've wasted. Start feeling enthusiastic about the time that's now available to you.
When the setbacks come, you won't do yourself any favor by feeling sorry for yourself. What will help is to direct your feelings into being more determined than ever before.
There's nothing to be gained by feeling envious of what others have accomplished. Choose instead to feel inspired by their examples.
It doesn't help anyone for you to feel bad about those who are less fortunate than you. Instead, make meaningful use of your own good fortune so that it has a positive and powerful impact on many other lives.
For every reason to feel negative, there's an even better reason to feel positive. And from those positive feelings come positive and valuable results.
