In our careers and personal lives, we all face challenges.  The great UCLA basketball coach John Wooden captured this problem and how to face it:  "Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be."

A few of my clients cannot move on on their career because they spend too much time and energy looking back on lost opportunities or mistakes.  I try to motivate them to look forward rather than backward.  Living in the past is never a good solution.  As Coach Wooden said, we are all capable of change.
