Why You Should Never Look Back Into Your Past

When you look into your past, you see your past, not your future. But you are no longer living in the past. You are living in the present. The present has the key to your future. The present is the way to where you are going. The present is the bridge between where you are and where you want to be. The Present is the connection between who you are and who you are becoming. It is important to respect your present. If you don’t live your present well, it will be difficult for you to live a better future. Because what you are doing right now is shaping your future, not your past.

Your past is your past. It is gone. The only good thing you can do with your past is to learn from it. You can visit your past for knowledge, but not to live there. No matter what you have done in your past, don’t look into your past with regret. Embrace it. It is not coming back to you. It is time to write a new chapter of your life. Now is the time to write a new story. And writing a new story of your life needs concentration. You need to concentrate on what you are doing in the present. Don’t go back to your old ways of doing things.

Instead of going back to your old life, why not go forward. There is no life in the past, but the future is full of opportunities. Why not take them? Remember, you are your boss. If you want to change your life, if you want to change your future, if you want to change the direction of your life, change what is not working for you. You can only do that in the present, not in the past. Your possibilities are in the present, not in the past. Your past is gone. Your present is now. Face your future with confidence, without fear, and with a loving heart. The choice is yours.

Moving Away From Your Past Failures

“…it is vital for you to decide what changes you want to bring into your life.”- Jim Stovall

Live your own life and forget your past failures. You can’t concentrate on creating your new life if you can’t let go of your past failures. They are just failures, not you. Do not let your failures define who you are. You are better than that. You are more powerful than you think.

If you want to create your new life, if you want to try again, if you want to better your life, if you want to protect your sanity, if you want to maintain a sound mind, if you want to live successfully, you MUST forget about your past failures. Because the more you concentrate on your past failures, the more you are missing what is happening around you. And if you miss the present, you can’t create the future you want for yourself.

Learn to forget. Learn to let go of the things that are not helping you move closer to your dreams. Don’t let your past mistakes and failures weigh you down. Instead, look for something positive to think about. Do things that will help you live a better life- you can walk, meditate, sing (if you can), call a great friend, or just relax. The choice is yours.
