not to think about what you
have left behind - but to focus
on what lies ahead."

The key to success is focus.
But misdirected focus can destroy your life.
What...Destroy my life!?!
More or less…yes!
Worrying about what has happened before prevents you from enjoying the present, living in the now, and focusing on the future. Focusing on what you left behind kills brain cells, wastes time, and sucks energy. It’s like thinking about the runway behind you, when you need to abort the takeoff.
Learn from the past, but don’t live there. Know that everything that has happened in your life has made you the person that you are, and has brought you to this moment. This moment is perfect.
Yesterday I said to my husband, “If only I’d started writing years ago, my life would be so different.” And a few days ago someone said, “condolences” when he’d heard that I’d worked for eight airlines. Well, I immediately took back that fleeting thought about my “writing earlier,” and I’m thankful I’ve worked for eight airlines. I would not change my life, because the timing and experiences created my life.
If I wasted time wishing what could have been, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I wouldn’t have the friends I have in my life, the experiences I’ve embraced, or eight airlines worth of data to write about. My life, energy, and attitude come from living fully in the moment and focusing on the future... not living somewhere behind me. I’m thankful for everything that has happened in my past—good and bad—as it has all brought me to where I am today—physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Yesterday after my 13-day adventure—scheduling called. I’m heading to Osaka this morning. Another life adventure in the making.
Enjoy the Journey!
