Let the Past Be Your Guide to a Better Future

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a time machine that would allow you to pop back in time and change all of your decisions that were maybe not so good?


Just think about it.


You could maybe break up with that bad person a little sooner. You could accept a better job offer. You could even buy a stock at a lower price. You could navigate life while knowing the future outcomes.


It would be magical.


Unfortunately, this is not the case.  There isn’t some machine that will let you go back in time and redo anything you want.


But we do have our memory. We do have books. We have history.


Rather than trying to change the future by going back in time, we can use the lessons of the past to avoid the same mistakes in the future.


Let’s be clear, there is a significant difference between learning from the past and dwelling on the past.


We can’t go back and change the past, undo our mistakes, or change the way we acted in the past.


Looking to the past serves us in that we can learn from it. We cannot and should not try to make our past our present. We must learn from the past and take those lessons to create a better future.


We can’t let negative past influences dictate the future. We must view the past from the right perspective. Learn from the past, but don’t dwell on it.


Instead…focus on the decisions, habits, and attitudes that you need to move forward. Let the past be a guide to the future.
