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.
