The game of surviving in such quick and challenging times that we are living in is base on leaving the past behind you, and concentrating on the future. If you want to make winning decisions, you must learn to control those bad habits and make room for your purpose which will eventually take the place of the habits that is holding you from breaking that barrier into your mission for the future. If you keep reminding yourself of past occurrences and miss opportunities, you will never get to experience what the future have in store for you.  
If you intend to survive and sore to your greatest potential, you have to know that you will fail sometimes, so you have to leave room for a margin of error. This will allow you to know that you are not perfect, and when you survive, you will have a sense of who open the door to your opportunity. It also keeps you humble and knows the road that you travel to survive.
There is nothing worse than a successful person getting so arrogant that he forgets that it was God who blessed him with his abundant. We make our plans, but eventually God is the one who decide if we are going to succeed or fail according to His purpose and not ours.  As it said in Proverbs 27:1 “Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth”.(NKJV) 

It doesn't matter how good we think our decision, we must leave room for the Lord to work

We must also leave room for disappointments and unexpected occurrences, when you pursuing purpose, there is a great chance that you will be hurt by other people. So you want to leave room for the unknown. They are some people who might just deceived you in believing that they are trustworthy, maybe they begin sincerely, and then because of jealousy and greed, you might just see a side of them that would shock you. It’s usually the people we trust and love the most is the one who has the power to betray us. However, we must learn to deal with the hurt and pain without allowing it to derail us from our long term goals of true success. It you live long enough you will find out how devious and selfish the human heart is, but if this ever happens to you, don’t let it deterred you from pursuing your purpose. A little bruise, a little scare or a little hurt will eventually heal; get right back on track and finish the race.

“Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.  And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Mark 13:12-13 NKJV)

We all will face failure, betrayal, and the temptation to give up on our dreams and settle for a lesser value than what the Lord set aside for us. But we must call on the Lord and thank Him for our many blessings and embrace his peace which surpasses anything we could imagine. Then we get right back on the road to our destination.
