You Are Always Free to Change Your Mind and Choose a Different Future, or a Different Past – Richard Bach

How do you define the events of your past?

What about your future?  Are you anticipating yours with excitement or with fear?

How we interpret the events of our past can have a tremendous impact, not only on our present moments, but also our future.  Do you look back at your past with regret or with a warmhearted remembrance?  Even if your past was filled with sorrow and failure, you still have a choice in how you interpret it.  Try your best to see yours through a lens of acceptance and acknowledgment.  View your failures and mistakes as learning experiences.  See them solely as a discovery of information that you can use to grow.  On the road to success, learning what not to do, can be just as important as learning what you must do.  Learn, adjust, and grow.

Your thoughts are powerful, and what you think about will affect what you attract into your life.  Constantly go around thinking negative thoughts about yourself, or stuck in a state of regret about the mistakes of the past, and you will only succeed in attracting more of the same into your future.

And remember, failure doesn’t make YOU a failure.  Don’t make the mistake of tying your entire self-worth or happiness to whether you succeed or fail at something.  There is so much more to life than the result of any one event. 

Are you thinking in a way that will allow your future self to cultivate what you want? Decide once and for all that you are going to move past your past, carry with you an attitude of gratitude for the lessons it taught you, and be positively expectant for your future.

  1. All your seeds are worth planting. Keep sharing them. This posts of yours makes me remember when someone told me he saw greatness in me because I was admitting responsibility for my painful past and not just blaiming others. It’s like not wanting to stay victim and instead aim to be a victory!

  2. Great read. Every successful person claims to have failed plenty of times before they succeeded. That is part of the process. Like you said, failure is a learning experience. And you can always look back and say at least you tried, which is better than most.

  3. Well said. I have been through a lot in my life, but now that I am older, I genuinely like the person I have become. I realize now more than ever before that what I went through is largely what made me who I am today. Thank you for sharing your insights.

  4. The choice of where we place our attention is how we exert free will.
    We can stay defined by our past or scared by our future.
    If we stay in the present we can use the past to bring closer a future that we desire.

  6. This is a seed I needed to read today. I am in a place in life where I have to move on from my past and create a new future. I’ve been terrified. After reading this I can feel a shift in my attitude today. Thank you.
