Leveraging On The Past

Leveraging On The Past

All of us have a past that we can never change.

We can decide to sink or soar as a result of it.

Unfortunately, many people are trapped in the past.

They relive their hurts and carry emotional baggages that should have been left behind them.

Unfortunately, if they are not at peace with the past, they will never be at peace with the present.

If they cannot accept and appreciate the past, they may not soar and succeed in the future.

Contempt of the past will eventually condemn the future.

As you reflect on challenges of the past, be mindful they were not random dots in your life.

They happened for a reason.

There are meaning and significance for every experience even though you might not realise it at that point in time.

When you understand how unique experiences of the past can be translated into a tapestry of purpose, meaning and significance, the past can become a powerful leverage and tool for creating your bright future.

It becomes a launching pad to help you make full use of your life and to live life at its best.

You cannot change the past. However, you can choose to learn from and build on it.

You may not be able to forget a negative experience but you can forget the negative emotions associated with it.

The more you remove the pains from the past, the more you will increase the gains in the future.

When you choose to turn every negative experience into a positive experience, it becomes another real-life example to teach others on how to handle life by its horns.

The sooner you come to term with the past, the larger will be your treasure cove of beautiful memories.

Do not only accept your past, be contented with it.

Don’t just come to terms with the past, be grateful and thankful for it.

Fall in love with the unique blessing of your past so as to love the present and possibilities of a brighter future.

When that happens, there will be a greater sense of serenity and pride and joy in your life.

The past will act like a signpost to direct your path to the future.

It can be a powerful resource to help you find true meaning and fulfillment and help you rise to your highest calling.

The past does not have to be a pitfall, it can be a powerful platform to propel yourself to a brighter future.

How you make use of the past will influence your direction in life and its ultimate destination.

As you do so, continue to capitalise on the “here and now” so as to further expand on the treasure cove of your memory.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
