“Rear View Mirror”

Are you stuck with your past ?

I know you are worried a lot because of the past events, and based on your experience with your past, you hesitate to take bold decisions. This is happening to you repeatedly because you remember the following famous quote.

“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”   Winston Churchill

Sadly this is not the case and if you want to lead the life you wish to have, you must take bold steps and ignore looking into your rear view mirror which reflects those miserable past events.

Otherwise, you become a victim of Rear-view mirror syndrome.

What is ‘Rear-view’ mirror syndrome ?

“Most people suffer from the self-limiting dysfunction “rear-view mirror syndrome” driving through life with their subconscious mind constantly looking in their self-limiting rear-view mirror.

They filter every choice they make through the limitations of their past experiences.

Always remember that your potential is TRULY unlimited and that you are just as worthy, deserving, and capable of achieving everything you want as any other person on earth”.  Hal Elrod

Any lessons ?

1.Don’t let your past control your future. The bad experiences you had are part of your life and no way should interfere with the present decisions.

2.Focus present to achieve confidence in reaching your goals.

3.Don’t put restrictions on what you wish to achieve in your life. Don’t be another mediocre person burdening Mother Earth. Look unto the future. Think of various possibilities.

4.Remember there are remedies for every problem. You only and you alone have to figure it out. It’s easy.Getting advice may or may not help.

5.Just refuse to look back.

Thank you. Namaste🙏🙏🙏
