August 14 – Are you leveraging your past? Are you so focused on now and the future that you have forgotten what may have been the secret sauce that got you where you are right now? Are you so focused on what’s next that you are not looking back to see how you could potentially engage what you have done previously to super-charge what you want to do? Are you overlooking someone from your past who could be just the resource, connection or leverage you need to catapult your dreams into motion? Letting go of the past when it was negative or painful is important. However, don’t allow your desire to leave the past behind to blind you to how your experiences and the people you have known could be a silver lining of opportunity for you being able to move forward in reaffirming ways.
Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to the possibility that dormant insights could be awaiting to be unveiled from your past to empower your ultimate future. Who from your past makes you smile or brings good and positive memories to mind? What experiences did you share together and what did these experiences teach you? Who is someone who was a source of strength for you? Could they be that strength now? Who is someone you admired or wished you had gotten to know better? Why not reach out now? Before you dismiss your past as something to be forgotten, embrace the possibility that a memory of empowerment could be awaiting your nudge to fully embrace your future.
