Mindset: Memories are memories


In the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League of 2024, Manchester City lost to Real Madrid.

On the airwaves were wonderful submissions of what could have been done and what shouldn’t have been done.

In the midst of all these, what was very intriguing was the fact that every one was stack in the past. This match cannot be played again, that day and time.

Manchester City’s loss cannot be brought back, and the 4:3 loss on penalty is forever a history.

This is exactly how many of us are leading our lives.

We talk of what we could have done 10 years ago or yesterday.

We sit and regret about the past.

We are full of memories and fond of them as well.

You are alive today because there is a solution for you to meet today.

For all of us to enjoy life, we must learn to see the future and live.

The future should be our joy and not on memories.

The past is only good if it is dealt with in the context of the past.

Future is simply the time to come.

Now, how can one learn to focus on the future?

By making a conscious effort not to discuss the past.

Choose to surround yourself with hopeful people.

Choose to be excited about the next time prospects

Choose to be imaginative.

Accept the fact that this loss or past memories are working to make you better.

Always know that every time you fail, there is something good out of it because you have learnt from an experience that didn’t work.

Know that the loss and the failures bring us closer to our set goals.

Also understand that our growth process becomes quicker because we have learnt not to waste our time on the wrong strategies again.

It makes us wiser.

Finally we mature.

The future is your greatest asset; you can choose to align yourself well with time and chance by using the past to prepare to create your own opportunities.

Believe in the future.

Embrace the future,

For the future can only be better.

For example, all the beautiful cars of many years ago are not as luxurious and lovely as the current ones.

All the beautiful houses of many years ago are now the first houses on the street because the houses of today are splendid.

Learn to put away discussions of what could have been and what couldn’t have been.

Memories are memories!

Think about it!
