Ask yourself now. In the past, have you ever done something so regrettable that you could not forgive yourself? Have you ever made a mistake that up to this present time you sre still blaming yourself? Are you still torturing yourself with the thought that only if you could have done it differently, you will be living a much better life right now?
Here is the good news for you! You don't have to keep this burden in your heart for as long as you live. You can release it and set yourself free.
You are depriving yourself of good mental and emotional health if you keep bad memories. Don't make yourself the prisoner of the past. This will adversely affect your capacity to act at the present moment. If you are still lingering in the shadows of your dark past, you will not be able to think clearly and you will lose your focus.
No matter what you do, what was already done cannot be undone and 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 learn from the mistakes, 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? Don't you feel great about it?
Well then, encourage and motivate yourself with these past experiences in your present endeavors. 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.
You may ask, If it hasn't happened yet, then how can the future influence your success? The answer is simple.
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 comprehensie and vivid way possible.
For example, if you want to get rich, then take into consideration:
1) The amount of 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) Have a vision of your lifestyle when you've attained the money. What kind of people you are in contact with, the kind of activities you are engaging in, the food you are eating, and the places you are visiting... Well, you get the picture now?
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. Are you ready? Remember you must take some action now! As always, mistakes will be made along the way, but you could always revise them.
Discard procrastination. Any 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 or someone else has taken it.
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.
Act intelligently. 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.
