I have heard a lot of people say you must never look back if you want to move forward, they are of the opinion that looking back always limits you from the future, but I believe that’s HALF-TRUTH.
As I would always say, the future is often impregnated by the past.
Retrospect is a review of or meditation on past events.
If you are keen on beginning an intentional journey to your future, you may need to engage the power of RETROSPECT-ING.
I believe it’s a necessary step everyone must take at some point in time to ascertain where the journey to the future is headed.
BENEFITS OF RETROSPECT-ING
It helps you keep your humanity at the forefront of your mind, heart and head.
It helps you plan your next steps.
It shapes your actions and decisions.
It humbles you.
It helps you cut others some slack. You begin to make allowance for the lapses of other people. Forgiving them and seeking ways to make people better then you met them.
It helps you watch your progress.
It also helps you pick from your lessons to appreciate principles and laws that you learnt that may come in handy for and to other people.
It is powerful enough to show you your strengths and weaknesses.
You shouldn’t run away totally from your past, you may be losing out on vital lessons yesterday was meant to teach you.
What you shouldn’t do however, is let the past cripple your forward movement.
Don’t look back to stay there, but look back to go forward.
