What would happen if you tried to drive your car while only looking in your rear view mirror?
You will crash…
Because you can’t see where you’re going.
You have to see where you’re going to get anywhere in life … whether it be driving a car…
Getting in shape…
Having a fulfilling relationship…
…or building a successful business.
So why is it when people feel like they can’t do something … they say things about their past to justify why they can’t achieve something in the future?
You can’t focus on your past failures and expect a different outcome.
Just because something didn’t work out for you in the past has ZERO relevance whatsoever on what you are capable of achieving in the future.
It's the equivalent of driving a car while only looking in the rear view mirror.
It doesn’t make much sense, does it?
Then quit looking in the past … and start looking forward.
To succeed in anything … you must get VERY CLEAR on what you want your outcome to be.
Sit down and think about where you want to be...
What does your life look like?
What does your job look like?
What does your house look like?
What kind of car do you drive?
What kind of partner are you with?
How much happier are you?
Take a few moments to really think about it.
It feels pretty good to think about where you want to be, right?
This feeling is what you need to be focusing on.
Every single day you should be taking a few minutes to imagine your ideal life.
Because whatever you focus on in life … you will become.
If you constantly think about how fat you are or how skinny you are … you will stay that way.
If you constantly think about how broke you are … you will stay that way.
If you constantly think about how poor your relationships are … they will stay that way.
If you are constantly focusing on what you want to become … you will automatically do the things you need to do to achieve that result.
It really is that simple.
This is a habit that all successful people already have perfected…
They all have powerful focus.
To have a powerful focus … you must have the imagination to create the mental images of yourself living the life you want.
Sit down and think it through every day.
If you can’t...
You better learn how … because you aren’t getting anywhere looking in the rear view mirror.
