It requires great humility to move forward without letting our past experience affect our future…even if our past was a huge success.
Maybe our best, yet to come, will happen from fresh discovery, and not innovating from past successes. Do you need to think way outside of your knowledge and past experience circle, and ask questions about how you can do your future better, be a better you, parent, leader, coach, church…etc…? Who will you ask? Initiate that correspondence today. But…keep in mind…
“If you always do, what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.” That’s not true of success. That quote is only true when it comes to sin, evil, bad habits, coasting downhill, racing to the bottom.
If you want to go up…you will not be able to use the “same-ol-same-ol” that you used in a previous success. I repeat, your past success doesn’t guarantee your next venture’s success. So, as you initiate the correspondence to ask someone for their advice and opinion…keep in mind, that they arrived at success with different teammates, circumstances, cultures, etc. than you have. What worked for them is no guarantee it’ll work for you. It might…but do you really want to build success by copy-catting someone else? You have to be you. So…take to heart what this art shows. Maybe you just need to get up every day and be faithful to the circumstances and people you encounter, and then trust the end results to work out accordingly.
