About this Quote

This quote by Denis Waitley talks to the significance of living in the present and looking to the future. Those who succeed, or "winners," comprehend that the past is a valuable source of understanding and experience, however they don't harp on it. Rather, they utilize the lessons they've found out to inform their choices and actions in the present. They concentrate on the present and the future, and enjoy the process of working towards their objectives. On the other hand, those who are not successful, or "losers," tend to get stuck in the past. They may be unable to proceed from past mistakes or failures, and as a result, they are unable to make progress in today or prepare for the future. To be successful, it is very important to learn from the past, but not to be kept back by it.
