Understanding the role our past plays in our success and happiness
If I asked you to remember your most embarrassing moment, which one would you recall now?
If I asked you the most triumphant moment in your life, which one would you choose?
How we remember our past, shapes our future because we unconsciously compare all our experiences.
We have negative emotions because we need to learn an important lesson from that experience.
Don’t you remember a past negative experience that used to be a big deal and now doesn’t bother you anymore?
If you think about that experience, what unconscious lesson have your learned?
If I asked you to create a list of three things you want to achieve in the next 12 months, what would they be?
If I asked you why you haven’t achieved your top 3, what would you say?
We always put reasons for our failures and missed opportunities on someone or something in our past.
On the flip side, our self-belief and self-confidence are a product of our past experiences.
When things go according to plan, our past beliefs are strengthened when we make an effort that gives us the outcomes we want.
Our past experiences provide the necessary leverage to get to the next level.
Our past experiences provide the foundation for our courage and focus.
What if we could create a list of our successes?
What if, only for today, we could find three past experiences when we felt extremely confident of achieving our goals?
What if this was the only missing ingredient for our success and happiness?
How do you begin:
- Practice daily gratitude and be thankful for every experience in your life.
- Practice daily meditation to remain in charge of your thoughts and feelings.
- Practice thinking your thoughts and focusing on what makes you happy and excited.
- Practice listing your past happy and successful experiences that you can use for leverage each day.
