I’ve talked about remembering your past, but I want to focus this post on victories, specifically.
When I was younger, I was very Divine - Fate believing. While I am not that way, now.. believe in free will.. many of the conclusions I reached carry over. And, one of those things was drawing courage for my future for my past.
In my life, I have been electrocuted 3-4 times at high voltage, sat on a poisonous snake, and other ways that SHOULD have killed me, actually… including cars almost hitting me when they ran lights and more. However, I survived. I used to say that if God had preserved me through all of that He would preserve me in the future. However, you can say the same thing about yourself.
I have had many times in my life that I thought.. this is the bottom. I won’t rise from here, but I tried and found it false. After both divorces in my life I found myself with little and alone, but I bounced back. I have had to declare bankruptcy based on medical expenses twice in my life, but I came back. Even at the start, I lived in a town of 500 that was hours away from any major city in a poor family, but I finished degrees and did big jobs over my years.
I’m sure you, too, can think of ways you have came back from failures in your past. Like me, you can look at the challenges in present and say.. if I preserved myself and rose in the past, I can do it again. And, with faith in ourselves based on our past, we will do it, again.
