What has already happened has indeed set the stage for what is to come. However, your past does not have to control your future, because you can control and direct what you do right now.
If you visualize and expect more disappointment, you're sure to get it. But you don't want to do that.
Instead, use this moment to break the pattern. Stop looking down on what has been, and choose to look upward to the best that can be.
You are more experienced, more knowledgeable, and more determined than ever before. So raise your expectations accordingly.
Form your expectations based on the best you know you can be. Feel the power of your most treasured dreams as you enthusiastically bring those dreams to life.
