We all make mistakes that have slowed us down, we may still be paying the price for some of them. They may have been painful but we must move past them. Every mistake you already made is now behind you, find the lesson it brought and learn from it. Those mistakes didn't stop you, they contributed to your progress. As you move ahead, there will be more mistakes but you can continue to learn and grow as a result. The only way your mistakes can stop you is if you let them.
