Put Your Past Behind You . . . . and Don’t Look Back         

“Living in the past is dull and lonely business; looking

back strains the neck muscles, causes you to

 bump into people not going your way.”

Edna Ferber 1885 - 1968, America Novelist,

Short Story Writer, Playwright

 

 

 

 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Put your past behind you . . . . and don’t look back

 

Living in the past . . . . and looking back will cloud your thinking . . . . and disrupts the quality of your actions.

 

When you’re living in the past . . . . your life is moving in the wrong direction. Focusing on the past is focused on history . . . . Not on the here and now . . . . and the future. By focusing on the past you have taken your eyes off your goals . . . . and your success journey is likely to get off track.

 

Living in the past becomes a massive waste of your time . . . . and you will find yourself becoming unproductive . . . . and moving farther away from your goals.

 

Focus your eyes on the horizon . . . . and look to the future.

 

Put your past behind you . . . . and don’t look back . . . . Look to your future. Determine your goals . . . . set the course to achieve the goals . . . . and take massive action to ensure that you successfully reach them. Don’t look back . . . . fix your eyes on your future . . . .  and on your goals.

Hi Lou that is is a great way to start out fresh. We can always change and use what we have learned to reflect.

Hi Lou -- I didn't previously know this Edna Ferber quote.  While understanding history is important, it's not a place to stay too long.   Move on and move forward.

Thank you for the reminder Lou Ludwig When steering a boat, looking at the "V" wake at the back of the boat only shows you where you have been and cannot control the foward progress of the boat. Looking ahead with the steering wheel in hand allows you to set a new direction.

Hi Lou Ludwig I agree with this concept... sometimes people dwell on the events of the past and get "stuck" and can't move one.  The only way to move forward is to keep focused on the present, and the future...and your goals

Happy Monday, Lou.  What a great quote and post to start the week leading up to the new year. We need to learn from our past but to stay focused on it only keeps us there.

The past is history;?tomorrow is a mystery—so all we have is the present that is today.

This is good advice. Too many of us continue to carry the burdens of the past.

Right on Lou. Here's another way to put it:

Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.

I need to print this and put it above my computer, Lou Ludwig ... I have a tendency to beat myself up a bit on this topic.  You provide me a good reminder not to do so ...
