The most successful people in the world are known to have a morning ritual, one that consists of setting goals and aspirations for the day. Contemplative individuals such as nuns and monks from a variety of spiritual paths begin their days very early, greeting the first rays of sunlight with prayer and meditation.
Use this meditation as a starting point for building a habit of greeting your day with a calm and centered mind. As the sun rises the night sky gives way to light and a new day is present, at this time let go of any sense of failure or regret of past days and times gone by. Greet the new day with an open mind and heart, feel compassion towards yourself and others.
