Free to soar

What if you could not remember any of your past disappointments? Just imagine how much more confident and enthusiastic you’d be about moving positively forward.

What if you had forgotten all of your past limitations and shortcomings? Just imagine how much more effectively you could make the most of the opportunities in each moment.

Realize that the past disappointments, limitations and shortcomings are not what hold you back. For they have already come and gone.

What holds you back is the fact that you keep the negativity of the past alive in your mind. When you focus on the past disappointments, limitations and shortcomings it brings them into the present where they can bring you down.

And that is very good news. Because whatever exists only in your mind is under your complete control.

So learn from the disappointments, learn from the past limitations, then completely let them go. And you’ll free your self to truly soar.

— Ralph Marston
