Everything we do comes with the total accumulation of our experience. We are not just giving what we have in the moment. It brings with it everything we have ever been thru, if we let it. You can be 30 seconds strong or how ever many years old you are strong. All of our experience makes up the building blocks that is our foundation to catapult ourselves from.
A negative mind remembers every block that came with pain or every block we fumbled or dropped and uses it as validation for our lack of value. Basically, we make it easier to deal with failure.
A positive mind takes every experience and uses it as an example as to why we can do nothing but succeed today. All past experience becomes positive when it is used to create success today. Yesterday’s hardship or sense of failure has been overcome and given us the knowledge to succeed today. Yesterday’s success is just another example of our ability to overcome and get things done.
Success is a choice. You can choose to make failure easy, or you can make failure impossible. Success comes to those that never quit, learn from everything, and understand that the past is just a building block for right now. Your past should be stepping stone to higher elevations, not a dead weight that keeps you down.
Never let anyone try and convince you that mindset does not matter. How you think is everything. You cannot maximize your existence without addressing how you think and how you process experience. Invest in your thought process and create the system for success you need if success is really that important to you.
