See Why Blissful Success is Absolutely Forward not Backward

So…let’s answer the question that may be on your mind concerning the title of this article.

I’ll start with the following quote to put things in perspective:

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsenses.”–Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why be miserable about your level of success so far because of what has happened in your past?

The above quote gives you the hopeful fodder to change your focus.  It expresses the essence of why achieving success must be a forward focus.

True achievers live by the following truism:

“The past is valuable as a guidepost but dangerous if used as a hitching post.”

You can’t dwell on the past in such a way that it holds you back!

Yes, you briefly and occasionally check back to see what things you have done in your past that have worked for you in achieving success.

But–CAUTION: Don’t allow your failures to become your focus.

As Emerson suggests, you cannot change the past, PERIOD! It’s gone! Let it go!

Success is always at hand when you look to the future and believe. Believe that you are therefore you can be…anything you want…achieve anything you want.

Here is a link to video enhanced eBook I’ve written to help you create the mindset for greater success.

It will help you shift the negative stuff in your head so you can act on the positive potential of your future.

But, again, that would be because success is about looking forward not backward.
