“Yesterday is behind you, just forget it and focus on the day!” – Random Guru.
Where you are in regards to your goals barely matters for your happiness.
And whether you want to forget yesterday, having an awful past that you’d like to forget about is the thing that’s going to get you to launch into a better place.
No matter where you are, you can be miserable no matter how many goals you’ve achieved. If someone has $10,000,000 in their bank this morning, they might be miserable as hell. Impossible? Consider if that person was worth $50,000,000 the day before.
The secret to knowing whether someone is happy or not is NOT seeing where they are today, but seeing where they were yesterday relative to today.
Yep – Truthcake just explained half the celebrity suicides in 1 sentence.
The trick is looking at where you were yesterday, and comparing it to today. Knowing what to compare to is the other trick. The unit of comparison may be simply more money, or perhaps the amount of people you’ve helped, a more satisfying work, or maybe the amount of hours it takes to achieve that money.
Growth comes in other forms besides your bank account.
If you’re not growing you’re dying. Stop trying to forget your past. It’s the only key to your present. And your present can be changed to control your future.
