I don’t know about your past or what it was like but what I do know is that moving forward your life can be changed.

“Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me.” –Chris Gardner

In you there is a light that is waiting to be turned on. In you there are abilities waiting to be revealed. In you is compassion waiting to be shared. In you is love that is not yet given. In you is the person you are destined to become.

Your past does not equal your future.

Look into your own life. Let’s go back to your childhood days. Do you remember that kid in your class who always talked, seemed to be distracted and the prediction was that he was not going to amount to anything? But he did. Do you personally know of anyone who has proven that what they wanted out of life became a reality? Do you remember that nerd who no-one wanted to talk to? But he or she has become a great success. I say that to, illustrate that you don’t have to go too far to realize that your past doesn’t equal your future.

If what you are experiencing is poverty…that can change. If in your past you had bad relationships after bad relationships…that can change. If you were told you are not good enough…that can change. It doesn’t matter what the experiences were; you can have a better future.

A quick note: You may have to change your mind-set. You may have to believe in yourself before others do. You may have to start using examples of other people’s success to encourage your own endeavors, but don’t judge your future base on your past experiences. Everybody has experience that they sometimes wish they could have changed but you know what? It is some of those same experiences that helped them to be who they are today. What they did was use their experiences to propel them forward into being a better and stronger person and you must believe you too can do the same.

What do you believe is possible for you?
