Don't let your past dictate your future

So many of us find ourselves looking back at 2014 having not reached the goals we set for ourselves. One of my favorite a ha moments from my first Jack Canfield live training was his story about his goal to earn his first million dollars, how he didn't reach it, but he got close and was very happy with his results. 

So how are you feeling about your goals from 2014? Do you feel exhilarated because you got close or reached them, or do you perhaps feel defeated because you didn't get close? 

Even if you were nowhere near reaching your goals, focus on the progress you made. Focus on how you are changed today from who you were in January 2 2014. Focus on how much better capable and ready you are on January 2 2015 to achieve and receive all the success you have mapped out ahead. 

Release the past, but don't let go of your dreams. Don't lose sight of your goals. Remember, the road to success is not a straight line, it is filled with many detours, and paths which look like dead ends may actually be secret doors that lead you to outstanding rewards. 

Set your plans and your goals for 2015 with a mind for what worked and what didn't but with a fresh perspective and renewed hope for tomorrow is ahead of us and anything is possible! 


  1. This year I am keeping it simple and only picking a one-word theme for 2015. My word is healthy! Happy New Year!

    1. I struggle with the one word choice, but I love the idea! Good for you Kandas.

  2. A good bit of advice. I love t. Set your goals with the future in mind, don't dwell on the past!

  3. I'm pretty impressed with the success I've had this last year. I didn't get quite there, but I did some pretty awesome things. I am grateful for a chance to keep moving forward. I am excited for 2015. The change in attitude, from seeking where I didn't make it to looking at how far I have come, has been a powerful tool. :)
