“Without letting go of yesterday’s successes it can be difficult to reach out to new opportunities before us today.” #bgdtcoaching.
It seems natural to hold onto all we have worked hard to obtain over the course of time. Our efforts have brought us to where we are today and few could deny us the moment to enjoy our actual position.
That said, without letting go of the feelings of victory and the like, we are invariably unable to move beyond the limits such sensations provide us. Resting on our laurels to catch our breath is one thing, staying there is another.
Yet what exactly are we grasping onto so rigorously? Is it the sense of achievement? The glory associated with winning? Possibly being in the spotlight connected to our accomplishments? In reality all of these are short-lived. Time moves on and brings with it new challenges.
Without letting go of yesterday’s successes it can be difficult to reach out to new opportunities today. Right now we may be facing any number of situations requiring our input. Whether related to work, health, home life or whatever, without letting go of what has been we might find it tough to focus our attention.
