Kill Your Past Before It Kills You
What would happen if you drove you car and spent most of that time looking in the rear view mirror?
First of all it would take you a long time to get where your going. You wouldn’t be able to move very fast either. Secondly you there is a high probability that you would constantly have accidents. And lastly when your looking in the rear view mirror, your checking to see what’s going on behind you, trying to make sure there isn’t anything to worry about, which causes you to worry and be fearful.
It’s clear to see that navigating your car form the rear view mirror would not yield the optimal results of driving. It’s safe to say that the same thing applies to life. Navigating your life based on your past wont yield your optimal results.
Therefore you must Kill your past before it kills you.
There is absolutely nothing you can do to change the past..
Live in the moment, now is all there is.
Is your past killing your or simply slowing you down?
Money can’t fix a broken heart. It seem like most people in America believe the money, above all other things, will make the biggest difference in their lives.The “American Dream” is based upon having more money than one needs.
Yes, Money can patch up holes in your house. Money can also easily fix a hole in your car, but no amount of money can fix a hole in your heart.
Yes, Money does bring comfort and a false sense of security, but money doesn’t create happiness and peace.
Money isn’t real.
If all money in the world disappeared today, only humans would be impacted. The rest of the living creatures of the world would be just fine.This is because humans have been conditioned to believe that money is needed to survive.
When you’re laid up in the hospital, your bank account won’t come visit you.Nurture your relationship, love people, not money.
What does your someday life look like? I imagine it looks amazing, at worst it looks better than your current life. Your someday life is the one you will get to someday, when conditions are better or different. Your someday life is the one you want, but don’t have the time and money for. Your someday life may seem like it only exist in some distant future, and that may be true. You can start working on it now.
Start working on it now and work on it everyday. Then before you know it, your someday life will be your everyday life.
Let me know what your someday life looks like, leave a comment starting with “Someday I want to….”. Then start working on that someday, today.
Here are a few of mine:
Someday I will be in excellent shape.
Someday I will have a successful business.
Someday I will write a book.
I’m working on all of these things now. My someday life is creeping up on me.
My first 21 Day New Habit Challenge
Today marks the 22nd day in a row that I have walked 5 miles a day. This was my first new habit challenge. I am proud of my self for sticking to my commitment, no matter what. I walked in the rain. I walked in the cold. I walked at night. I walked when I was tired. I even walked when I was sick.
No matter how I felt before my walk, I felt better afterwards, every time. This is part of how it becomes a new habit. Not only by doing it everyday, but also from the enjoyment and benefits I get from walking.
I now know my neighborhood pretty well. I have been in most of the coffee shops around here and met new friends. I used my walking time as a meditative period. I listened to hours and hours of personal development material.
When I first started the walking it was a challenge, 21 days later, I look forward to doing it. I enjoy it, I actually want to do it. I’m truly excited about walking 5 miles. This has inspired me to create more new habits.
Good habits are easy to develop if you have will and desire and little help from some friends. Once you get started, your attitude will shift and you will find the difficult to be easy.
You can look the whole world over and never find anyone more deserving of love than yourself.
Happiness and true freedom come only when we assume full responsibility for who and what we are.
I sit on a man’s back choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means, except by getting off his back.
If we don’t believe ourselves worthy of happiness, we won’t allow love to take root in our beliefs about our lives and we’ll sabotage love.
What has destroyed every previous civilization has been the tendency to the unequal distribution of wealth and power.
