If any driver keeps focusing only on the rear-view mirror, then he is sure to get into an accident! That is how life is too.

We should look backwards once in a while, to know what mistakes or good things we have done, and learn from it to see how we can improve our life. But we cannot continue to live in the past. This is a very important lesson in life.

Do Not Continue to Live in the Past

Generally, unsuccessful people are those who continue to live in the past. This can also be a result of being unsuccessful in the present.

The utility of the past is giving you experiences that shape your future. It is necessary to look at the past as a teacher once in a while.

But the future always lies ahead. Future is where life takes you, and life must be lived forwards.
