If you don’t have the life you want today, one of the most important things to change about you is your attitude. Change your attitude about your past and do it fast. If your past is anything other than a school of learnt experiences that you can grow from, then you are in for a tough ride in the future.
Yes your life may have been full of knocks, maybe you had poor parents, or no guidance, maybe your partner left you for someone else, maybe you lost your business, or you just feel unlucky…
What do you want to happen? Do you want the next 5 years to be the same as the last?
Tell me this what will you gain from thinking about how you have been wronged over and over again. Will this lead to your happiness?
Will you end up in love and rich beyond your wildest dreams with that focus?
Of course it won’t, you’ll end up bitter and destined to cope, ugly to the outside world, lost and negative as life never feels right as you either try to claim back an old life, or blame others for where you are, or maybe blame your circumstance on your lack of luck.
You see there is no growth in that focus, or those words that run over and over in your head.
You may notice that those that are lost and down on life seem to connect and form groups, they may not get the answers or feel better, but at least they get a connection.
The sooner you discover that what you have been through is nothing more than a lesson, then the faster you will learn what needs to change within you to make sure that never happens again and you create a world you can be proud of.
If you are waiting for the world to change you are in for a long wait, it’s you that has to change and to start that journey it has to start with your attitude to your own past.
Only then will you free yourself from your own prison…
