Don’t get me wrong, I love success. Who doesn’t? But success comes with a danger. It has the potential to endanger future success. Or, it may simply hinder progress.
Constantly looking back to the success of the past has the potential to glorify that past. “The good old days” become so glorious that you can’t move forward.
You may even begin to pattern your suture according to your past successes. But you future has challenges and situations that you’ve never had in the past. You’re actually setting yourself up for failure.
By all means celebrate your past successes. But face the future with new patterns of thought and action – to face the newer challenges.
