Why Now Matters and Then Doesn’t

whats nextToo often in life we get stuck in a pattern, or what’s commonly referred to as being a stuck in a rut.  We get on the treadmill called life and just run over the same ground without really going anywhere.

A lot of the times, it’s because our mindset is stuck in the past, where we left something unresolved.  It could be any number of things :

  • Maybe you lost a relative.
  • Maybe you had a relationship fall apart.
  • Maybe you were made redundant from a job.
  • Maybe you didn’t win that first grade spelling bee.

Whatever your particular thing is, you need to work on identifying it and resolving it. there is plenty of ways you can isolate and understand just what it is.  Because once you really understand it, the reality is, then doesn’t matter only now does.  You really can’t do much about the past, its happened,

  • Maybe you made the wrong decision
  • Maybe you acted poorly at the wrong time
  • Maybe you made the wrong investment decision.

Whatever it is, you can’t go back in time and redo it.  You need to:

  • Learn from it.
  • Accept it
  • Deal with it
  • Move on.

The sooner you can achieve that, the sooner you can turn your effort into being productive in the here and now.  Learning from it means you’ve got the lesson, and understand it.  If you keep making the same mistakes, you’ve failed to learn from it the first time.

The lesson to be learned here is :

You are destined to continue to make the same mistakes until you learn the lesson.

Now matters

Its really right here and now that matters more then anything, Its what your doing right in the moment.

  • Maybe you’ve just started a new relationship – Think before you start dredging up the last 5 years of events ( Good or bad), just spend the time and get to know each other, as you are right now.
  • Maybe your thinking about a career transition – That’s great by the way, but you just can’t quite make the jump, because your stuck in with a FEAR MINDSET.  Right down what it is that is making you fearful, an a action plan for the what if.
  • New business venture – FEAR – I only have 6 months of saving

           Action plan – Maybe borrowing more money, from a bank or relative, maybe you look at how you can cut your costs, and make your saving last.

Remember that life is a series of events that we all go through, right from the day that we are born to the day that we die.  It’s what we do with the middle bit, the time in between that we have the most influence over. So make use of it, learn to let go of the past and live in the now.
