I don't know if following are correct conceptually or not. I want to say that In the past I wasn't wise enough to apply earlier.Now I am mature and wise.


1) If I had been able to think like now, I would have applied earlier.
2) If I had been as mature as I am now, I would have applied earlier.
3) If I had been wise enough, I would have applied earlier.
