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.

Believe In Yourself!

The beginning of things is always scary. But do not let that stop you from doing your things. It not going to be easy, not when you are a beginner. Just believe in yourself. Believe in your abilities to get things done. Don’t fear. When you see fear, do not quit. It is part of the game of life. Fear is everywhere, but if you work really hard, you can defeat fear.

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”- Norman Vincent Peale

You are not alone. People are going through the same thing that you are going through right now. If you doubt yourself, continue. Reach out for help. Don’t experience everything alone. Because there are people out there who are ready and willing to help you. If you don’t reach out, they can’t find you. It is your job to talk to other people who have gone through the same process. They will help you. Remember, as the saying goes, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.”
