Ep #32: How Much Can Your Past Help You?

Written by Chaney Weiner

How many times in your life did you look back in your past and say, “I wish I could change just one thing and life would have turned out better?” At some point in time we all have.

But even if you were able to change something from your past would you want to? Would it really make a difference and how would everything else in your life have turned out?

In this podcast episode Chaney discusses why it’s wise to look back in your past, and being able to see it as a springboard in turning your life around…while at the same time seeing how it has helped you up to this point in your life.

You’ll discover:

  • Why it’s important to be aware of both the “positive” and “negative” from your past (and how each is necessary to turn your life around).
  • How your past is part of your present…and how your past is also not part of your present.
  • Why it’s vital to go back in time (if you could) and relive everything again exactly as it happened (and how doing this transforms your life).
  • Why you would never want to change anything from your past even if you could.
  • How saying, “I wish it was like the good old days” can sometimes lead to having feelings of regret.
  • What to do if you feel like you made a so called “mistake” in the past and how this helps you in the present.
  • How to discover the hidden blessings from your past (even from the different moments when you felt you made a mistake).
  • What gratitude really is (and how your past is responsible for you feeling grateful).
  • The “fine line” involved in looking back in your past (and how to do it properly).
  • Why you never want to forget about looking back in your past.
  • What never changes in your past and your present (and why this is necessary to know when it comes to turning your life around).
  • What is involved in removing any emotional baggage from your life.
  • Why people end up arguing for their limitations while thinking they’re not “worth it.”
