‘’Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it . ‘’ - Edmund Burke
There is a popular adage in our society that goes something like this ; forget the past , don’t worry about the future , live in the present .
But those who choose to simply forget the past miss out in its fullest potential . There are valuable lessons to be learned from it . And those who choose to ask the right questions about their past are most prepared to live life to the fullest in the present .
In fact , the past is a treasure chest filled with learning opportunities for our present ,and future , but only if we look inside .
Your past is the best teacher you have . You have accomplished so many things so far , and each experience, positive or negative , taught you something .
Because life is moving fast , there might be lessons you forgot .
First , remind yourself that you can't do well each time .
Plus each and every failure opened up your eyes to new opportunities , horizons , and perspective .
Second , not every body that you loose is a real loss .
Third , you can face and deal with whatever life puts in front of you .
If there is a lesson to take on from the past , this might be the most important one ; you can face whatever life throws at you !
Fourth, usually you are finding what you are searching for .
Looking deeply in the past will show you what was wrong to correct or what was missed to do in the present or future .
