Letting Go of the Past

releasing the past
By Randy Gage in Success, Prosperity.

We’ve been talking about the vacuum principle of prosperity this week. Please allow me to suggest another area to apply this. Your past. 

We can go two ways here…

Way number one is hanging on to past glories too tightly.  Sometimes when I’m speaking at convention with other speakers, I see people who are milking their careers from a book they wrote 20 or 30 years ago. The day I don’t think my best work is ahead of me, is the day I close my office, shut down my social media accounts, and head off to a Thai beach.

Celebrate the past.  Take pride in your accomplishments.  But if you live in the past, you’re going to get moldy.

The second danger is holding on to a hurt, insult, or injustice.  If you cling to these, you become a professional victim.  And if you’re a victim you can’t be a victor.  You have to choose one or the other.

You can create almost any kind of life you desire.  You can create a breathtaking destiny for yourself.  But first, you’ll have to let go of the past.

  1. There is a common mistake with the “Good old times” concept: first, if you think about it honestly, it wasn’t as great as you remember. It looks good, because it was long time ago. Looks good, because it is “old”. Of course, it can be awesome, just maybe not “as” awesome, as you think. You had great problems in the past too, just because back then your girlfriend’s @ss was nice and curved, it doesn’t mean that you weren’t in financial debt or anything else at the time.

    The second problem is the biggest: “Good old times” is nothing, but a negative mind virus. The virus suggest you that what was before, never going to happen again. Yelling for the past makes the virus even stronger. It is suggesting you that as the time passes, everything going to be more worse. In other words: every day is better than the next day. This makes you and old and lonely mummy eventually. But interestingly enough, you don’t think that past mistakes aren’t happening again. You may make the same mistakes again, and again. Or you never going to drive a car again, because you had a crash. So you think, that bad things going to happening again, but you don’t think the same from the good things. Isn’t it insane? There is no “Bad old times”.

    But of course this is a lie. You can create every joy again, what you had in the past, and of course, you can make even better. Much better. Do not pick up this lie, because it is dangerous.

    1. Just to add a couple of things here:

      “Your first love is the greatest one.” – Wow, are you Nostradamus or what?

      “Childhood loves are the greatest (if it is correct). – Where is your crystal ball dude?

      One of my friend told me that 30 years ago he made so much money that he could bought a brand new car in every weekend if he wanted so. After he said, he quickly added: I never ever going to make so much money in my lifetime.

      It holds true as I far as I can see.

      Every single of them is the “Good old times” meme.

    You do not mention how to let go of the past.

    1. Randy Gage says:

      That’s correct. Any thoughts why you think that is? -RG

    Randy, I really enjoy your posts. I’m new here, I saw a YouTube video about choices & you compared a75 yr old woman well off financially & a 75 year old man needing to work as a greeter. What would be your advice to the man for his future to be better? Or does he need to learn to accept his poverty since it’s too late?

    1. Randy Gage says:

      No it’s never too late! Once you change your mindset, you change everything about your results. -RG
