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.
