Is it truly your past that informs your life? Most people are stuck in reverse. Their memories of the past influence what they expect in the future and they act accordingly, which creates a self-fulfilling prophecy. They
relive the past over again in their minds—thinking about and dreading what they DON’T want to experience.

By thinking about and visualizing the future, the mind begins to create the problem-solving steps and thoughts that can actualize what you DO desire, not what you fear will occur from your past. In other words, it’s time to step on the gas, and get out of reverse!
