Is your orientation toward your history or your destiny?
Do you have a loyalty to your past or to your future?
Are you reliving, retelling and reinforcing a well-worn, recycled story?
Are you doing things in the same old way?
Are you using the past as proof of what the future holds?
Or are you daring to do it differently by dreaming up a new way forward?
Because the choice is always yours:
Keep recollecting and stay in the past.
Or forecast a fresh future for yourself.
Here’s the good news…
You don’t owe your old ideas anything.
Who you thought you loved.
What you thought was right.
Where you thought you’d be.
So shed the old beliefs that no longer serve you.
Drop the stories about why it didn’t work, or how you got it wrong.
Say peace out the past.
Put a fresh face forward.
Dare to do it differently.
Dance with your destiny.
Because the truth is that destiny trumps history.
And your future ain’t what it used to be.
