When we imagine the future, we think of possibility, opportunity, a better version of our current state.
When we imagine the past, we think of possibility, opportunity, a better version than our current state.
Too often, we spend our imagination on how things were. We hold onto the past, hoping we might someday retreat to it.
This comes from fear.
That tomorrow will be worse, so we cling on to what we have, and close ourselves off to another way. We seek preservation instead of progress. We believe in scarcity instead of abundance. We seek comfort in the accomplishments we’ve already made, instead of committing to the uncomfortable hard work that’s in front of us.
But what if tomorrow can be better?
What if there’s a better way?
What if there’s more ahead for you than there was behind you?
