Don’t fail to plan by dwelling on the past; strive for success

2016-11-03 06:01

Let’s make peace with the past. What happened has happened and we can’t change it.

Reminiscing about it(the past), is wasting valuable time. I know for some people the past has done the unforgettable and the call is to move on.

For some letting go of the past feels like letting go of their soul. The truth is, the past its done and no small part of it can even be changed.

The past is only good to learn and gain experience from. Our past should be a lesson well learnt.

We must acknowledge the past and its pain and glory, but its important to move on.

The crucial thing is that we must live for the moment. We must be conscious to what we’re doing now. Let’s not allow the past to cloud the present.

The current time is for creation and action. This time calls for implementation of all the plans.

This moment in the next second will be the past, so use it wisely, and use it now.

Out past should not hinder of our success. Out past must remind us that it belongs in the past.

The future is were the imagination of abundance lies.

The plans should be occupying the entire space. But the sad part is that for many, future is blank. The past has infiltrated the future in such a way that there is no vision or future planning.

The reason for this is that people are afraid to try new things. We hear them saying “I have tried to open my own business but it was such a failure I can’t open another one”.

The truth is that this should be a lesson learnt, so you can try again.

Thomas Edison tried more than a thousand times to give the world a lighting bulb.

One of the key lessons I have learned in life is from a book called “Art of Possibility Practice 8: Giving Way to Passion”(p. 114) by Rosamund and Benjamin Zander.

The Zanders talk about allowing your passion to lead you to your future. Giving way to passion is facing your future with no limits. Its owning the imagined destiny.

We need to ensure that we are opening space for creativity and creation as that what the future is all about.

Living ours lives with the fear of what happened will not solve no liberate us from fear.
