Let Go Of The Past
by John Colanzi
Have you ever walked by a low fence and wondered why
the dog inside will run to it, but won't jump over, no
matter how many times he runs to it barking and
growling?
The odds are the dog was placed inside the fence as a
puppy. He grows up seeing that fence as being higher
than it is.
He learned as a puppy that no matter how many times he
tries to clear it, it's just too high.
Over time he gradually tries less often, until
eventually he quits trying. He just knows he'll never
clear that fence.
The same thing happens to us over the years. We try
to reach a goal and fail.
We muster up the courage to try again and fall just
short of the mark. Gradually that fence becomes higher
in our minds, than it really is,christian louboutin discount.
It's a gradual insidious process and we seldom notice
it's happening. Over time that fence becomes more
imposing.
Our efforts become a little less enthusiastic. We start
building fences in our mind and like that little puppy
we begin to break,red bottom shoes.
We begin a new goal with so many doubts. We just know
we won't reach it, and so we don't.
We start thinking to ourselves, I knew I couldn't do
it.
Our doubts become a self fulfilling prophecy.
It doesn't have to be that way.
Our failures aren't us. Our limitations are nothing
more than fences we've built in our minds.
The cycle can be broken, if we could learn to stop
thinking about our past failures and concentrate on the
here and now.
There's a story about two monks walking in the woods.
As they approach a small body of water, they notice a
young woman afraid to cross the water.
The older monk puts her on his shoulders and carries
her across.
When they reach the other side he sets her down and
continues on his way.
A little further along on their journey he turns to his
younger companion and asks what's bothering him.
The young monk says, "You've broken your vows by
touching that young woman."
The other monk replies,"Yes, but I let her go when I
was finished helping her, you're still carrying her
around."
Are you like the young monk, carrying around your
mistakes of the past, or have you learned how to let
go and move on.
Stop mistaking your past limitations for who you are,christian louboutin shoes.
Let go and move on.
Begin every task as if it were impossible to fail,jordan shoes.
You can,christian louboutin outlet, if you think you can.
Wishing You Success,
John Colanzi
