A Human Approach

The Past is Irrelevant

What level of proof do you need to see before you believe something to be true?
Before you hire someone, do you extensively review resumes and previous performances? Before you invest in a system, do you read testimonials from institutions similar to yours to verify a track record? Before you begin a training program, do you verify that individuals like yourself have experienced the results you’re looking for?
For some reason, we’ve been conditioned to take a “seeing is believing” attitude. We look to history in order to make a decision on the future. That means we’re putting faith in what has already happened, to happen again.
To some extent that might offer comfort or a level of predictability in the decision-making process, but having the expectation that something will be replicated identically is making a decision by facing “backward”.
While the narration of the past offers a record, are we suffocating our beliefs by boxing them in with only what we have seen in the past?  In order to breathe in potential, shouldn’t we be somewhat closing our eyes to the past?
Aha! ~  Believing is seeing
Whether it be a skill, system, training program, skyscraper, tech device, or even monkey bars, creating something new starts with an idea. History plays less of a part than vision and belief.
In ‘It’s Not About the Money‘, author Bob Proctor says, “The reality that you live today is the manifestation of all your past efforts.  This is what has produced your present results.  Your future is open to infinite possibility; it is not dependent on the past.  How you think today will determine the results you achieve from this point forward – the past has no bearing on it.”
People, conditions, and circumstances change constantly.  There are no guarantees that what happened before will happen again…..which is actually very good news. What IS guaranteed is your ability, as a co-creator, to imagine, which Albert Einstein says, “….is more important than knowledge”.
My money is on you.
