What does it take to succeed?

There have been many conversations over the years where every reason, excuse and belief under the sun have risen to the surface when I ask questions like, 'what is holding you back?' or 'why do you think you haven't achieved X, Y or Z?'.

And almost every time, the answer has come from looking into the past.

Many years ago, a wise man gave me an incredible perspective about our past.

He told me that our past can be viewed like the rear vision mirror in our car. When we want to go forward, we don't drive constantly looking at that rear vision mirror.

Instead we are looking forward to where we are going, not to where we have been.

He then explained that a quick glance from time to time at that rear vision mirror is a reminder of how far we have come.

But it is not a guide for where we are going, or evidence that the direction we are heading is possible or not.

Ask yourself this question.

'What is holding me back from achieving my goals?'

Then compassionately observe your answer.

Are you looking to your past, or your current circumstance for evidence of why you can't move forward?

Or are you looking at the place you want to be?

View your goals from a place of vision; from a position like you have already achieved that goal.
