Have you ever noticed that we will remember the bad times before we remember the good times. Even reminiscing on the good times we may find ourselves saying "BUT REMEMBER WHEN WE COULDN'T OR WHEN WE DIDN'T?" Reflecting on the bad even if it is just for a fleeing moment can either paralyze us or propel us.
Here's how you can tell if your reflecting on the past is all good or all bad.
If you smile when you are saying "But remember when we couldn't or when we did't, it's all GOOD because you are not allowing your past to ruin your future but rather you keep it pushing by celebrate the fact that you made it in spite of your past failures. You may even find yourself chuckling about it for a minute.
Now on the other hand, when you find yourself saying "But remember when we couldn't or remember when we didn't" and your countenance changes for the worst ...it's time to abandon those thoughts quick, fast and in a hurry!
It's okay to remember the bad so that you won't repeat it but when it stops you from going after your dreams and goals, 'Mmmm Houston we have a problem.'
We are all human and it's hard not to reflect on who did us wrong, the relationships that went wrong, the wrong turns we took in your career, and the wrong words that came out of our month.
If at any time you feel like you can't accomplish a goal because you have been there before and the results were not what you expected... just remember...
END = Effort Never Dies and NO = Next Opportunity!
