“Don’t waste your time looking back. You’re not going that way.”

It’s easy to be obsessed with past mistakes and negative outcomes, especially embrassing ones.You may think that everyone in your life is consumed by it too. Truth is , in most situations, no one is dwelling on it as much as you are. So let it go.

Choose something in the present to create your future.

How about focusing on improving by a fraction today in some way?

How about looking at the short and not getting lost in the long term goals?

Looking back on past mistakes or missed opportunities can be tempting, but it can also be a hindrance to progress. It can prevent you from fully embracing the present and taking advantage of new opportunities that may arise. It can also create feelings of regret, guilt, and sadness, which can have a negative impact on your mental health.

By emphasizing that “you’re not going that way,” Ragnar Lothbrok is reminding us that the past is behind us and that we cannot change it. The only thing we have control over is the present, and by focusing on that, we can shape our future.

Therefore, it is important to learn from our past experiences, but not to dwell on them. Instead, we should use them as a tool to guide us towards a better future. We should embrace the present, learn from our mistakes, and work towards our goals with determination and positivity. This quote encourages us to focus on the journey ahead, rather than the one behind us.

Long term vision is great but dwelling on it can make it seem very unreachable. Put the blinders on and always ask a very simple question……”Why not?”
