Never Limit Your Future
Never limit you future by shape of your past. This time-worn truism is still around for a good reason. We still need to be reminded of that, especially as we move forward with our goals, whatever they may be.
Never limit your future by shape of past. As I thought about that statement I realized that history bears witness to many who have overcome horrible pasts and moved on to be very successful in their lives. Many of our current heroes and heroines have overcome poverty, child abuse, serious illness and disabilities to become successful in their chosen fields of endeavor.
I am reminded of successful people like Oprah Winfrey, Dolly Parton, late Ray Charles, Loretta Lynne, President William J. Clinton and many others. All of them overcame great obstacles to achieve success that was in them.
Overcoming one's past to achieve success is not limited to those who achieve great fame or fortune, but to everyday people like you and me. Each of us likely has something in our past that could have prevented us from getting to where we are now.
If you are reading this article you already have a history of achievement. If you don't believe me, think about many thousands of Americans that are functionally illiterate (not able to read and understand average newspaper article).
