They’re Wrong! You MUST Look Back!

You know that meme that says,
“Don’t look back – you’re not going that way”?

Well – I have a real problem with that!

I say, “LOOK BACK!”

It’s time to stop hiding our past.

I often see those memes on the internet and they say something like, “Don’t look back you’re not going that direction.” 
.
Every time I see those memes I cringe a little bit. I mean I understand what they’re trying to say don’t look back as if your best days have already past and don’t look back as if your mistakes define who you are today.
.
I totally get that.

But …

.
There is a strategic power in being willing to look back. here’s an example:
My friend said to me just the other day.
.
She said, “When I hear the term ‘Live Your Dream’ – she said I think of you because two years ago what you’re doing today was just an idea
.
And now here you are: you’ve relocated, you’re in a whole new career, you’re doing exactly what you said you wanted to do.

.
Now that reminder from her gave me a lot of power cause it helped me to see from where I was two years ago all the way up to where I am now.  And looking at that progress in the right way – in a celebratory way – actually helps me to refuel for more progress.
.

If you just look at the present – sometimes  – I don’t know about you – but sometimes I fell like, day in day out

.
I’m digging in digging in digging in – I’m clawing my way up the mountain…
.

Sometimes you feel like you’re not making any progress at all. So when we look back and see where we’ve come from, then we have something to celebrate. That gives us power to view where we want to go in the future.
.

So I say: Look Back!
.

Go ahead and look back and take that journey that you’ve been on and use it as a celebration and as fuel to move forward. Don’t be afraid of your past.
.
You know they say it doesn’t matter where you’ve been. 
I say it does matter where you’ve been cause every place you’ve been has contributed to who you are today.
.
And all of that is useful and important and informs everything you do as you move forward.
.
Now you don’t have to be prisoner of it you can reframe it, you can rethink it, you can rewire those memories so they are used for your power – but don’t forget where you’ve been because that’s part of who you are and it’s incredible how you have overcome and you have stayed committed.
.

You have risen up and you’ve grown and you’ve become who you are today.
.

And who you are today is going to inform who you will be tomorrow.
.

Don’t ever be ashamed of or afraid of your past.
.

Your past is your power. Use it and move forward.
.

Create the life you want by using all of the life that you’ve been given
