you can't moving forward until you look back and see here you went wrong

"The Only Way Out Is The Way You Got In"


Sometimes the only way out is the way you got in.

You have to go back to the very beginning.

I know this can feel like the longest way.

But you were going the wrong way.

And you couldn't keep going on in the wrong direction.

You weren't making any progression.

Time to go back and look over things, and see

what you could have done differently.

Hindsight is always 20/20.

You will find the obvious when you go back to the outset.

When you began you couldn't see as clearly.

You had to walk miles to learn until your shoes got worn.

Then when you couldn't go anymore that's when

you stopped to examine things more.

You'll find all the answers from looking behind.

You must go back before moving forward.

You can't cut any corners.

Good luck to you my friend.

Go back to your beginning.
