Its time to throw away that rear view mirror of your past. Thats right, you should pitch it, toss it, chunk it or get rid of it any way you can. Far too many people hold on to their past, needlessly preventing themselves from embracing the life they could and should be living today. You need to remember that your future lies ahead of you, not behind you and its those things that lie ahead that will shape the rest of your life. The only thing that matters from this point forward is where you are going.
We encourage you to look ahead, look forward, look up and then
never look back. Please remember that your past does not equal your future. You can indeed have, do and be anything you truly desire. Yes, you can! But youve got to be willing to throw your entire heart and soul into making these dreams come true.
You should look ahead and vividly visualize the things you want to accomplish in exacting detail. See them, touch them and feel them in your heart and soul. The power of maintaining these razor sharp mental images of where you are going and how you are going to get there in your mind helps to intensify your motivation and heighten your focus.
You should look forward to each new day and the plentiful opportunities it brings with it. Challenge yourself to keep looking up, looking forward, looking ahead because that is precisely where your life is heading. Straight to the top of your chosen field of endeavor, up to the front of the line, right to the head of the class. When youre ready for your life to get better than ever itll get better than ever before.
It is high time that you forget about what is behind you (because it is behind you - and that is where it will remain) and place all of your focus and attention on building the promising future you and your loved ones deserve.
