Do you limit yourself based on your past experiences?
Many people do.
When considering the future, we often think about:
- What we accomplished in the past.
- What we couldn’t do in the past.
Here is the thing:
- Your past doesn’t define your future.
- What did or didn’t work is not the measure of your future success.
It is fine and even important to evaluate projects.
You want to learn:
- What worked well?
- What didn’t work well?
- What needs to be adjusted or changed?
However, that is different than limiting yourself because of your past.
Clients often tell me:
- I can’t because (of something that happened in their past).
- I am (afraid, shy, not good at) because of their past.
- I can’t accomplish ____________ (because they couldn’t do it before).
These thoughts aren’t the truth.
They are only thoughts from your past.
They don’t help you.
Instead, ask yourself:
“What would my future-self tell me about this?”
- No one knew how to fly until someone did it.
- No one knew how to run a mile in a minute until someone did it.
- No one knew how to split the atom until someone did it.
- No one knew how to make Velcro until someone did it.
The first people to do these things didn’t have past success to pull from.
That had to imagine how in the future these things would work.
Think about all the things we take for granted every day:
- Electricity in our homes
- Cell phones
Someone had to imagine how in the future these would work.
Your life is no different.
So, if you want to:
- Have great relationships.
- Overcome a past fear.
- Increase your income.
- Loose weight.
Ask what your future-self, that already achieved this goal, what they would tell you to do.
This allows you to create from your future.
In this way, you use your vision and imagination.
You stop limiting yourself from your past.
From your future-self anything is possible!
