“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies with in us.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

It makes no difference the mistakes we’ve made in the past. It makes no difference the things we have yet to conquer in the future. What truly makes a difference and is by far more important is who we are on the inside.

We all have faults. Not a person in this world has not made a mistake. What is crucial is the willingness to learn from our mistakes and grow from them. While it can be painful at times, it is always a character building experience with positive results.

So, what does this quote really mean? It means that the thing which lies within each of us, our character, is what makes who we are , what we are able to do and how we will overcome the obstacles that we face.
