The past doesn’t define you

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” — Philippians 3:13:14

“The past doesn’t define you”

“The past doesn’t define who you are. It defines who you want to be.” — Anthony T. Hincks

“The past doesn’t define you”
“The past doesn’t define you”

“The past doesn’t define you, your present does. It’s okay to create a vision of the future because it affects your behavior in the “now,” but don’t dwell on past mistakes. Learn from them and focus those lessons in the moment. That’s where change can really happen.” — Jillian Michaels

1. Stop letting past events control your present life. The past can only help you if you learn and grow from these experiences.

2. Stop allowing people to control and manipulate you. People that really love you will create the necessary space in time for you to grow.

3. Stop being an unconscious competent. Be aware of your subconscious thoughts that lead towards your feelings, actions, and ultimately your results.

4. Stop the comparison game that leads nowhere fast. No one in this universe has your DNA so dare to nurture all of you.

5. Stop believing that present circumstances shape the direction of your life 24/7 and 86, 400 seconds of each glorious day.

6. God is in control; not people, not machines. Nothing!

Finally, with steadfast faith, you are in control of your own life. When you give your power away consciously or unconsciously, you then begin to feel stuck and powerless.

Being stuck really sucks but there is a way out.

Here it is.

No one can control your thinking.

No one!

You’ve got this.
