  2. Emeasoba George:

    Living in the past is synonymous with driving backward rather than forward. And you should agree with me that whoever that drives a car backward cannot make headway. I mean, he or she will hardly reach his or her destination. May I tell you, that's just an aftermath of living in the past. Yes! you heard me right, you will hardly realize your dreams, visions or aspirations if you keep on living in your past. Thus, desist from focusing on all that is behind you i.e. your past mistakes, setbacks, failures, misfortunes and things like that. Anyway, the ball is in your court as ever. So, feel free to play it as you wish.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Anyone who longs to fly must let go anything that can weigh him/her down. Yes, until you let go of your past, you can't make headway.

  4. Frederic Neumann:

    China's stock market stumble now risks knocking demand down further. What all this points to is the need for a lot more easing, including extra fiscal spending. China's economy is highly dependent on construction. With that engine sputtering, mainland commodity demand will struggle to make headway for a while.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Life can/will sometimes knock you down. It's up to you to either bounce back up or remain where you are knocked down. But, I urge you as ever, don't/never get stuck on where you've fallen. Rather, strive by all means to get back up to your feet. Because, you will hardly make headway until you resolve to get up from your ashes of downfall/failure.
