There is a reason why the past is called the past. It is history and there is no changing what already happened. So, why fret about it? There will be numerous times when life will make one feel like he or she has failed. However, the best part about having a rough yesterday is that there is always today to make for a better tomorrow. As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "I am who I am today because of the choices I made yesterday."
Eleanor traveled a clearer path to the future because she was knowledgeable enough to use her past as a reference. The first step towards a brighter future is recognizing your mistakes and regrets. Mapping out your errors is an easy way to determine how to execute similar tasks in the future. First, establishing what lead to the decision you made can make for a better outcome to a related upcoming situation. This task can be made simple by organizing a list of what you can change and what you cannot.
Next, sorting through the skills you picked up along your journey will help you realize what you are truly capable of. Create a few more lists, including skills you attained before your first job, skills compiled during the job, and weaknesses you have noticed within yourself.
Constructing these sort of lists for yourself will declutter your mind and bring clarity to what needs to be done for tomorrow. The present is what determines your future. Regretting the past will not change the past. Productivity comes from seeing the past as an opportunity to alter the future.
It is important to prepare yourself in the best ways possible. Reconstructing your résumé to fit new skills, achievements and experiences is critical while searching for employment. Even if it has not been a long time since your last job interview, brush up on the correct approaches to a new future boss and anticipate all of the possible questions you may be asked by holding a mock interview with a family member or friend. No matter how prepared you think you may be, there is always room for improvement, and that improvement might get you what you truly desire.
