If You Don’t Let The Past Die, Then It Won’t Let You Live.

It is so simple to look backwards at the past with hopes of recourse and a desire to rectify what has already happened. In the majority of cases, this proves to be water under the bridge with limited, or in most circumstances, no opportunity for rectification in helping you to live a better life.

By choosing to look at the past, rather than staying in the present and focusing on what can be accomplished in the moment, you ultimately enter a loop of insanity. The internal video in your mind plays over and over again, taunting and teasing you with the prospect of going back in time to change a decision. This creates a doggedly determined perspective to rectify rather than to proceed into the future with a proper game plan.

The key to growth is awakening to that understanding and a recognition that the only pathway that makes any sense is moving forward with intent, dedication, and a clear mind that has accepted the past for what it is and allowed a new opportunity to mature as you move forward.

Everything else, in my personal experience, is just mental torture that is wholly unnecessary and incredibly unproductive.

This COVID-19 crisis has given all of us an opportunity to take inventory of what is most valuable in our world, to wish and hope that something different had happened in the past, and to expect to live in a brighter future as we emerge. That brighter future will only happen with our intent and focus on what is possible versus what has already transpired as what was.
Wishing you a vibrant Tuesday full of new possibilities!!????

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!
