“It is not your past that defines you, only what you do next.”

I remember hearing Tony Robbins mention this at a TED seminar and just thought, ‘of course!’ We often talk and use excuses the happenings of our history both as individuals and as the human race. What happens just never seems to be our fault; it’s because of this or that. Well after hearing this I made a concerted effort to just be positive and look forward to the things I am going to do, rather than the things that had happened in the past. I feel a completely different person for it.

Saying that I have o fly to Bahrain today, which is something I am not particularly looking forward to due to the trouble recently happening there. But I am trying to be positive and focus on the aspect I am only due to be there for five hours! I hope the trouble in Bahrain does reside as it is a wonderful little country in the Middle East and the people are very friendly. Lets see, keep positive:)

  2. Every morning for the past several decades I have read the newspaper, and every morning I see numerous stories about criminals, swindlers and others who have been accused of various bad things. It is typically just the same story over and over again, because the accused person always seems to blame someone else for what has happened.
    I often think of the saying “When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself.” My mother used to say “Mess up…fess up.”


      1. Thank you Seth! All safe.
