Learnings for Adults
Past. you can either run from it, or learn from it.
June 2, 2016

Your past experiences are valuable lessons to you now, learn from them.

Life has no reverse button. None can rewind time and listen past. None can rewind gone days/nights. None have power to readjust two hands of clocks.

Past is absolute gone and find dead. Only one thing, you can take out form past is that LEARNING. You could have few lessons and apply those lessons in life in present.

Living in past is never preferable and preferential

Truth of life is that today is going to end with beautiful sunset. So , today and present moment is hard core fact of life. You can keep looking up in future. You can recall past or learn from past but hard core fact is current moment. You have to live in that moment.

You could be wise by living in present.

In one of my management seminar in Dubai, Mr. Shoeb Hyder asked me that ” i have lots of good memories and events and relationship in past. can i cherish those moments in present? i am not hurt, sad and becoming dull.”

my answer : even though, do not do it. By that, you also spend present unproductive. You can create one more great moments of life by using those present moments. you missed an opportunity to create one more pleasure moment or event.

Great moments of past are the keys to open the door of future.

you can create wonders by living in present and control present also. Control present means you are creating future which is going to be past after couple of years. You have right to create bright future. After few years, that bright future become glorious past. By controlling present you control future and avoid mistakes of past.

Steve Jobs asserted very profoundly that For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

i believe very strongly that when past call do not attend it as it has nothing to say something new.

I am not regretting about past but i am asserting that you can make it more better with people or place or time or creation. Most precious life cannot be wasted for few reasons or be-causes.

i do not see wiseness in holding with past in one life. you cannot judge by past or cannot predict for future on bases of past.( both the ways chances are open)

if you are truly loving life than leave past there and live in present to create great past.
