One of most important things an individual can do to move toward success is to let go of the past. We all carry emotional baggage, and it can weigh us down and keep us from building our best lives.
That's because dwelling in the past keeps you in the victim mentality. Victim's believe that the world happens "to them." Common phrases like "I can't catch a break" and "fuck my life" reinforce this damaging train of thought.
Successful people don't dwell on the past. Rather, they use all of the things that happen to them, good and bad, as lessons to guide them for the future. With this "for me" mentality, the obstacles you face in life are no longer "bad." Instead, you look at these problems and obstacles as opportunities for lessons.
This episode takes you through what you need to know to change your mindset, rid yourself of the victim mentality, and turn your life around.
