“Live out your imagination, not your history.” – Stephen R. Covey.
History fascinates people. Looking back to days gone by, pondering ancestors and visiting museums are activities that provide pleasure to many.
Knowing the past, it is said, helps us understand the present and prepares us for the future. And so it might be. Yet when we spend more time ‘living in the past’, or even ‘reliving our history‘, we perhaps risk to miss out on some of what constitutes our now.
Never getting beyond our history limits our potential to create tomorrow’s history, i.e. today.
So right now, knowing your history and most likely having a dream vision of your future in your heart, what can you do to live out your imagination? What will be the benefits for you if you do take such a step? How will you feel?
