Grow From It and Move On
Why do so many people bring up the past in conversations? Why do we listen to these people? Is there a reason why people prefer to talk about things they did or use to do? Is it more interesting to use examples of the past to keep conversations interesting? In some cases, yes, when someone is talking about an accomplishment and how they achieved it. This is intriguing to anyone that is interested, but others would most likely say, “oh, they were lucky” or “it was given to them”.
People would rather hear stories of disappointment, discontent and failures. Why, because they can relate to this. Everyone in one way or the other has either failed or not been happy with the outcome of something they have done in their lives. The problem people have is that it is easy to use the past as a crutch. They use the past as a reason not to achieve what they want to do, whether or not the past circumstance has anything to do with the decision at hand. What is even worse is when a negative person chimes in on a conversation an offers their two cents of nothing. That’s right, two cents of nothing, two cent of totally unrelated negative nonsense. What happens to the conversation at this point? The conversations’ topic goes from reasons not to do something to a feeding frenzy of negative thoughts and negative opinions. It is easier to talk about why you can’t do something than talk about how you’re going to do it. Why, because these people were never really willing to give it 150% to achieve anything beyond what they needed to be comfortable. It’s a shame but true.
If you want to achieve anything in life that is considered extraordinary amongst most people, you better have a positive attitude. You need to align yourself with positive thinkers. You need to stay focused on your dreams. You need to analyze your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. When a negative person comes along you need to help them realize that living in the past is holding them back from being and achieving the extraordinary. Everyone wants the best out of life. Some will achieve it and some will not. Achievers don’t live in the past. They learn from it and become extraordinary people. They grow from it and move on. Which do you want to be?
