Mission Possible - An Incredible Career in 52 weeks (Week 52)

Mission  52 Enjoy The Journey

One of my favorite Disney movies is the Lion King. I love its messages of family, responsibility and honor. And my favorite part is when old Rafekki bonks Simba on the head. Simba says “what was that for?” Rafekki says “It doesn’t matter it’s in the past.” Yeah, -but sometimes the past hurts.” “Sometimes it does, -but you can either run from it or learn from it.” Are we learning from our past mistakes and challenges. Too often we continue to try and live in the past and re-tell our challenges over and over. To re-tell is to re-live and often that is not a good idea. Your future doesn’t have to be the same. Tomorrow can be different from today if that is what you want. Look at your future and see the endless possibilities instead of being stuck in your past.Once you stop trying to control your past and let go, -then the past will let go of you. Don’t let time become your enemy by living in the past or the future. Live now! Love the journey. Because the journey really is the destination.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
