The future depends on what we do in present
Present your Past in Future
You are in a train sitting near the window, enjoying the pleasant breeze from those open windows.
You happen to hit a stranger sitting opposite to you and pick up some conversation.
The conversation goes back to your past, say collage days, and about how was you back then.
How do you feel?
What is your response? Or what do you like to be your response?
I am sure, you would love to have some positive phrases like “Oh, I excelled in class. I use to be first in all units, have received many awards.” etc etc…
But, if you were really so bad in collage days that you have to be suspended several times due to your discipline or lack of discipline?
Do you feel comfortable to share this experience as it is? Of course, you can just cover up to a stranger. But can you do the same with a known person? Even though the person may be well aware of your act back in old days, sharing the act now will bring you some uncomfortable terms, right?
Well, had you known that you will hit to this conversation now, you would have behaved well back then? Right? Ya, I hear you saying, too late. True.
Again, if you are one among millions, no one cares. There are literally 1000s passing by you everyday and no one even bothers to look up your face and pick up such conversation.
Now, imagine you have become famous.
A politician, an actor, a billionaire etc.
Don’t tell me, celebrities or such persons do not sit near the open window seat of train, travel and pick up such conversations!!!
OK, if replacing the train with a business class flight gives you a smile, then use those phrases!
You will be immediately noticed and made fun of what happened in past. Will you like it?
When do you feel proud to present your past?
Only if your past had colorful events, right?
If the past is full of sorrow, or mischief etc will you be proud to present it to the people in future? Certainly no.
You would have heard that the past have been haunting several people.
Many people in high position today are scared of their past, why?
They want to hide those sour days and misdeeds today and for ever. why?
They are even afraid of losing their current position due to the past mistakes.
So, what is it we take from such people? They could have reached the top by hook or crook. But they cannot be there happy due to this guilt.
Do we know who we are going to be in future? NO. We can dream to be one we want to, and we can also reach there. But until that day you are still not THERE.
Can you correct your past mistakes? NO.
A deed done is done. No way to undo those things. Yes, you cannot correct, but can compensate.
So always remember, you need to present your past in future.
And you can do so, only if you have a bright past!
How do you build a solid past?
To answer this, let us ask ourselves the below question.
What is that you can control now?
Do you have control to do what is correct now? YES.
You have every power to do what is correct to you and others today. Every time you want to do something, think.
If I do this, am I going to regret in future?
Will I be happy to share this moment with others?
If the answer is no, STOP!!!
This answer of NO is the answer to question of if you should do that task or not.
So, keep doing those activity for which you get a positive answer in present and soon in future you will notice that your past is suddenly all rosy and gloomy.
Every task you did by answering YES above will build a strong portfolio of good deeds.
So, now won’t you be happy to share such a good portfolio?
I am sure you are. So, start today. Start NOW!
Build your present good, so you can…
Present your Past in Future.
