It’s human nature to get caught up in dwelling on past mistakes.
However, when you aren’t 100% focused on the present, it can hinder your ability to perform your absolute best. Thoughts of the past can trigger feelings of regret, worry and a lack of confidence.
Past mistakes do not equal future failures.
When those doubts start creeping in, how do you regain focus on the here and now?
- Identify the negative thoughts.
- Tell yourself that you will not let the past dictate the present.
- Realize that the past provided lessons, but the present is a totally different challenge and situation.
- Let go and focus your energy at crushing RIGHT NOW.
Like anything, this takes practice. Be mindful and identify those times when you are focused on the past, let go and get ready to attack the present. You have total control over this!
I leave you with a quote by Eckhart Tolle...
“Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the now. Nothing will ever happen in the future. It will happen in the now.”
