“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” — Walt Disney
Consider for a moment your past, the past you have lived for the last number of years, what did it look like? Your past brought you to this moment right now in some shape or fashion. You were curious, you were seeking, you were looking or you stumbled to this point. No matter how you got here you arrived. Your past is over, your next thoughts, your next actions, your next desires are going to take you from the present to the future. The small steps, the small ideas, the small actions you take today will start to shape your future.
While the past may have played an important part in getting you here, what will play an important part of getting you there, to your new destination? What new thoughts ,new actions will you have to take to start creating a better future for yourself? What will you need to start doing? What will you need to stop doing? What will you need to learn and what will you need to unlearn?
Your future, you are the author of your tomorrow.
For some people the past is the author of their future. Some people are so stuck in the old stories and beliefs that they can’t see another way forward. What story are you listening to?
The past certainly has shaped the “who” you are for today. With effort, with time, with desire and with persistence a new “who” will be created.
Career path not working for you, then what steps do you need to take?
Relationships are on the rocks, what new steps do you need to take?
Life flowing in the wrong direction, what new steps will you take today?
