If you don’t leave your past in the past it will destroy your future. Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.

If you don’t leave your past in the past it will destroy your future. Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.

What is the single biggest incident in your past that you are having the most problem leaving behind you, without influence on your future?

Life is fraught with so many disparate circumstances, as to leave anybody in a continuous state of reconciliation between what they have expected, and what is actually transpiring in their world.

It is relatively easy to find ourselves caught up in the turmoil of things that we have wanted to go in a specific direction versus what actually transpired.

In those moments, we are continually navigating the disparity between current reality and the reality that we were hoping would come to fruition. Besides the obvious opportunity to learn from our respective mistakes and mature, another huge component to the equation is learning to just leave those mistakes in the rearview mirror and proceed forward with energy towards manifesting that which we are now focused on, into reality.

Anything less than this discipline, creates a continual state of discord within us that precludes our complete and clear focus on our ability to accelerate, full speed forward towards our current goals, aspirations, and dreams.

A lot of people are more willing to leave specific issues within their own internal demeanor, and thereby reduce the overall attention and enthusiasm that they are able to commit, to a lesser degree, solely because there is a part of them that is unwilling, under any circumstances, to leave their troubles in the background and accelerate with a clear slate going forward.

Once we are able to recognize this problem within us, our next step is to forgive ourselves for any transgressions, mistakes, or misperceptions, that we might have made in the course of trying to bring our own world to fruition, and in exchange, accelerate our respective energies and desires towards that which we are most enthusiastic about pursuing.

Life is a very short journey, and in that window of time, I believe it is incumbent upon all of us to come to a complete realization of this mindset, such that we are that much more empowered to succeed at whatever we are putting our focus and dedication towards currently.

Happy Saturday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
