Quote: Everything from your past does not belong in your present. – Lolly Daskal
Quoted by Dave Sitzler @daveSitzler
One of my favourite quotes from Kunfu Panda is “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. But today is a gift. That’s why it is called present.”
There is not need to investigate who said this. It gives us a new perspective to look at our paths. When we are focusing on living the present, be in the moment, we are too busy to spend time contemplating the past or forward-thinking the future. It doesn’t matter we are talking about past successes or past failures. Because, when we live every current moment the way we are supposed to do and make it count, we are learning from the past failures to avoid making the same mistake, or we are repeating our past successes to build success upon success, either way, we are growing. On the other hand, if we live every current moment to our fullest, it is no doubt that our future is on the path of our vision. We are growing as well.
Growing is the best gift we have from life. It doesn’t necessarily mean become richer financially, it also means become richer experientially, which is what is called wiser. The more we experience, the more we learn, both the good and the bad, and to collect the good and eliminate the bad.
Everything from our past is a baggage to us, physically, mentally and emotionally. I remember Bishop T.D. Jakes gave a vivid metaphor. He described, “Overloaded people fail. They always have and they always will… Like an airplane, we can only carry a certain amount of weight. If we have too much baggage on board, we will be ineffective and we won’t be able to soar…..In order to maximize your life, you have to minimize your load”
Live today as a gift. Control today as we like.
