Do Not Allow the Past to Limit Your Opportunities Today

by admin on March 12, 2014

EmploymentScape Chief Executive Officer, Harrison Barnes discusses how we allow the past to limit the opportunities we have today.

We make giant generalizations about various people, places and things, and end up living our lives and careers controlled by generalizations about our past. This limits the number of opportunities we have access to and prohibits us from living the lives and having the careers we could potentially have. For most of us, our limited understanding of the past actually ends up limiting our opportunities in the future. We may have had negative experiences in the past, and these negative experiences control us because we want to avoid having them in the future.

Because most of us have had limited experiences in the world, we too form incredible generalizations regarding our beliefs as to the directions our careers should take. One of the most destructive things that we all do is that we look at the world in front of us in a way which is defined almost entirely by the past. In fact, all of the decisions we are making about our lives and what is going to happen to us in the present are affected by what has happened to us in the past.

You need to look very closely at your life and see how your beliefs about the past may be limiting you in the future. Do not allow the past to limit the opportunities you have today.
