Day 364: Beyond the Rear View Mirror: How to Stretch Yourself to New Heights This Week

You can’t go to the level of life you want by looking in your rear view mirror. What are you going to do this week to stretch yourself?

-Dean Graziosi

You can’t let your past control your future.

Do you dwell on past failures or criticisms? Do you let one negative review overshadow your accomplishments?

This is your ‘rear view mirror’. If you continue to focus on it, you risk stalling your progress and stifling your potential.

Philippians 3:13 says, “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.”

You’re urged to let go of the past and push forward, stretching yourself to reach new heights.

Now, how do you implement this principle in your life?

Identify past failures or negative experiences you're holding onto. Acknowledge them, learn from them, but don't let them dictate your future actions. Click To Tweet

Set clear, stretch goals for yourself.

What goals seem slightly out of your reach? Writing a specific number of words each day? Reaching out to a potential publisher? Speaking publicly to promote your book?

Set these targets and force yourself out of your comfort zone, and consistently evaluate your progress.

Then celebrate every small victory along the way.
