What does it mean?
What do I mean by living in rearview mirror? How is it stopping you from becoming the best that you can be?
What I mean by living in rearview mirror is simple are you living in your past. Are you always thinking about your past? The good things, the bad and your mistakes of past.
Then you have to think about your life.
For example if while driving you focus on your rearview mirror more than the road ahead then it is the sure way of getting crashed.
Why past is not important?
We focus a lot of energy in our past but it is not that important as you might think because future is made by what you are doing today. Think about this people and what they are today.
The nerd from high school became Bill Gates or Steve Jobs.
The guy who got cut from the freshman basketball team became Michael Jordan.
The poverty-stricken abused girl from Mississippi became Oprah Winfrey.
Your past doesn’t define your future but your present does. So focus most of your energy on today so that your future will be what you want it to be. You should motivate yourself everyday and move in direction of you goal.
