When I was much younger I seemed to have a bit of a problem avoiding the other cars. I have scratched, dented, totaled and smashed more cars than a demolition derby driver. My dad would always say that if I was in Patton’s Tank Brigadewe would have lost the war. It is only through the grace of God that I am still here today. The amazing thing to me is that I wrecked all of those cars while looking forward. OK, maybe once in awhile I wasn’t totally focused on looking forward but I can honestly promise you at no time was I ever driving the car through my rear view mirror.
It always bothers me when I talk to people that seem to be living life through their rear view mirror. You know the type. The person who likes to say: “If only” or “Why not me”? They are living their life through their rear view mirror.
You know some of the best lesson’s we will ever learn are from our past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future.
