To Deny One’s Past Is To Deny Oneself

by Uran
At CFM, we put a big focus on goal-setting – an emphasis on looking forward to what will be. I, for one, think that’s awesome! It’s great to look ahead to what we will accomplish, what our life will look like, who we plan to be, etc. In fact, if you aren’t willing to take a peek into your future and at least THINK about how you’d like for it to play out, you’re doing yourself a huge disservice. But with all that looking ahead, we leave ourselves little room to reflect on the past.
So take a few moments today to think of a few positive things that have happened in your recent past. How have they impacted who you are today? How have they shaped the decisions you’ve made leading up to this moment in your life? What have you learned from them that has changed the way you think? In the same way that we look ahead to continue our growth as athletes and people, there is merit in taking some time to reflect on how much we’ve already accomplished as well.
