In getting on the positive side of change, we’re aware of the balancing act we play on a daily basis. Imagine….You’re driving your car. You’re looking at where you are going. But in the rearview window you see headlights. You are distracted by the headlights and forget where you are going. That’s what happens when you lose your center.
It could be said that most of our life is like that….trying to maintain that balance so that we’re moving forward. So that we keep our eye on what’s important to us and what we have to do to get there. While it is true that the past does have some relevance, more important is what we’ve learned from it and how we are going to build upon it. It doesn’t do any good to dwell on what has happened in the past or the missed opportunities. “If only I said this. If only I did this instead. If only I tried harder. If only I took advantage of the opportunity.”
It’s time to get excited about what’s ahead. Stretch yourself. Get out of your comfort zone. Imagine what your life would be like if things work out better than expected. What a great thought. What if in the morning, after taking time for meditation or quiet reflection, you visualized that life. Yes you made it a habit. Everyday. You build on it. Be a dreamer. As John Lennon sang, “I might be a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.”
So stay focused on where you want to go. Take every opportunity you have to move forward in your life.
