If you are like the majority of people, you have probably made some mistakes along the way. Many times the tough stuff can better your future. Here are a few ways that your past can better your future:
Wisdom. Experience should breed wisdom. By making mistakes you learn how not to do things.
Motivation. Challenging circumstances can build strength. Do not let difficulties stop you; let them make you stronger.
Identify. Your story gives you credibility. Your cannot fully understand some things in life unless you go through them personally. Your experience may be the very thing that allows you to connect with a person no one else can reach. Your future may be better because you help make someone else’s future better, too.
