The past is..
Good afternoon great people.
We all know one of the worst things one can do to another is hold their past over their head. There's no good that can come from such practices. You hate when people do that don't you?
I thought so.
Though this is a familiar topic, let's look at it from another angle. Most apply this principle to vindicate themselves from past indiscretions. Cool, I totally understand. We've all been there.
Want to know what I've found?
People don't want you to bring up their negative past, but they'll live off of their past success FOREVER if they could!
Follow the logic.
You don't want anyone bringing up old stuff, but you're still talking about the spelling bee you won in the third grade?
What about that makes sense?
You may have been an all star athlete, a model, great businessman, have 382 degrees, or achieved many levels of success.
Great. Proud of you.
What have you done lately though?
Are you winning NOW?
No really, stop reading your press clippings and answer the question.
ARE YOU WINNING NOW?
I think you know the answer.
Past success is just that, PAST success. It's been said" If what you did yesterday looks big to you, you're not growing." Let's briefly enjoy our accomplishments and move on to planning the next.
You can do it..
You have to..
The past is gone...
