Use The Past, Future, And Present In Attaining Success
By Michael Lee
Did you know that
your past, present, and future can affect directly or indirectly
your outlook in life?
Have you ever done
something that is so regrettable you couldn't forgive yourself?
Have you ever made a mistake that up to the present time you're
still blaming yourself? Are you still torturing yourself with
the thought that only if you could've done it differently, you're
living a much better life right now?
Good news for you!
You don't have to keep this burden in your heart for as long as
you live. Release it. Set yourself free. It might even be a blessing
in disguise designed to bring forth unexpected opportunities.
If you keep bad memories,
you're depriving yourself of good mental and emotional health.
You're making yourself a prisoner of the past. This will adversely
affect your capacity to act at the present moment. You will not
be able to think clearly and you will lose your focus if you are
still lingering in the shadows of your dark past.
No matter what you
do, you couldn't reverse or otherwise change history. So let bygones
be bygones. Why worry about something you have no control of?
Let go of the past,
but keep the LESSONS. Whatever lesson you've learned will be of
utmost importance to the fulfillment of your goals in the future.
These lessons are your mentors that may sometimes teach you the
hard way; but nevertheless, success comes to those who are willing
to take the risk and pay the price for their actions.
And what about the
successes you had in the past? How did you feel when you've accomplished
something exceptional? It feels great isn't it?
Well then , use these
past experiences in your present endeavors to encourage you and
to motivate you. These memorable experiences will bring a positive
aura of enthusiasm and will remind you that you have the power
to achieve anything with the right attitude.
Recall these affirmative
memories in everything that you do and you will see amazing results
in all your undertakings.
Now how can the future
influence your success if it hasn't occurred yet? The answer is
Your burning passion
to attain your ideal life in the future will become the motivating
factor that will prod and push you to take the essential steps
at the present moment.
Conceive your future
in the most vivid and comprehensive way possible. For instance,
if you want to get rich, then take into consideration: 1) How
much money you desire to make, when you intend to get them, and
your action plan to have that exact amount by your target date;
2) The vision of your lifestyle when you've attained the money;
like the people you are in contact with, the activities you are
engaging in, the food you are eating, the places you are visiting...Well,
you get the picture.
These are the guiding
forces that will chart the right path to your intended destination.
If you envision yourself as having attained them and focus all
your efforts regardless of the impending obstacles ahead, then
your inner power will release the right kind of energy that will
enable you to do nearly anything in pursuit of your desired end.
The present moment
is the time to ACT. Ready or not, you must do some action now!
Mistakes will be made, but you could always revise them.
aside. One delay or excuse will generate a chain reaction of more
postponements and alibis that will never end. Before you knew
it, open opportunities have already passed you by.
Never let fear get
on your way. Some people are struck by the threats of failures,
setbacks, or criticisms. What they don't realize is that majority
of successful people had to pass through "the eye of the
needle" in order to get where they are now.
Use your past mistakes as guides to avoid future blunders. Let
the vision of your ideal life in the future compel you to carry
out your plans and catapult you to reach your deepest desires.
