Your Past Doesn't Have To Define You: Part 4 - New Horizons and Accepting The Unknown

So far in this series, I've shared how many of us are shaped by our past experiences and how that can define who we are today (Part 1). I've also talked about how we have the power of choice to move on from those experiences to no longer allow them to negatively influence who we are and who we can become (Part 2). In Part 3, I discussed how the concept of our comfort zone is not our friend, at least not if we want something different in our lives and to grow beyond our current limitations. 

IF we grab hold of our desire to create change in our lives and are willing to no longer be held back by the limitations of our comfort zone we are then able to truly begin exploring new and unknown horizons. My choice to put my fears aside (or at least in the background) and experience the Disney College Program was that first true step for me into the new and unknown. Not just surviving that experience, but embracing it in all its challenges put me on a new path. Over those short 4 months,...

Your Past Doesn't Have To Define You: Part 3 - The Comfort Zone Isn't Your Friend

So far in this series, I've shared how many of us are shaped by our past experiences and how that can define who we are today (Part 1). I've also talked about how we have the power of choice to move on from those experiences to no longer allow them to negatively influence who we are and who we can become (Part 2). 

If we accept the truth that we have the power to choose how we will let our past experiences influence us, then it's just a matter of deciding if we will act upon that knowledge and understanding. To not act, to remain where we are, to continue to allow ourselves to be pressed down from rising to our full potential is a choice. If this path is chosen, then what hope can we have to live differently? To not intentionally move forward into something new is a choice to let the past continue defining who you are and what you are capable of. BUT if we accept this truth, though it may be a daunting proposition, we are then free to see what this life has to offer...

Your Past Doesn't Have To Define You: Part 2 - Moving On Is A Choice

 In part 1 of this series I talked about how the past can shape us and shared some of my story about how my experience in school negatively impacted me and how I viewed myself because of it. Be sure to go back and read part 1 to more fully understand what I write here. 

So, what if our past doesn't have to define us in the present and into the future? What if the impact of our negative past experiences could be different? What if you and I could change how that experience influences who we are and what we do? Today I address those questions and will share how I got from where I was to where I am. 

No matter who we are, where we come from, how much or little money we have, what we suffered through in the past, there is a truth that applies to each of us. It is this; whether we like it or not we have the power of choice. Now, why would we possibly not like knowing this truth? It's because it means we have to accept that we have a measure of control and with...
