Taking a look at the past may influence your current life and even define the outline of your future. How is it possible? Let’s use a simple analogy.
The man and his house
A man is like a house that is being built step by step during a lifetime. Just like a house, he needs strong foundations. When they are strong, the walls can be built before the roof is constructed!
Constructing the roof before the walls or building walls on shaky foundations would not occur to anyone.
There is a time and place for everything…
The same goes for human beings. They need to shape their personality step by step and take things in the right order to avoid crumbling down someday, to know who they are, what their personality is and experience success and happiness.
The building of the foundations of a house can be compared to the shaping of a child’s personality. The construction of the walls corresponds to the consolidation of the character and the installation of the roof corresponds to the time when the age of reason is reached.
Once all the construction steps have been carried out, the state of the house needs to be regularly checked to make sure everything is in order, nothing is damaged and nothing is threatening to collapse.
Also, when someone has reached maturity, they need to use the experience they acquired during their childhood and adolescence to consolidate their life as an adult and serenely grow old!
A logical continuation: the past, the present and the future
As a result, a Man needs to use his past to build his present and foresee the future under the best conditions.
The events and hardships of the past and must be remembered so that the same mistakes are not made again because they will only lead to the same deadlocks. Ordeals are there to help you progress if you can learn lessons from them.
It is important to turn the past into the foundations of your life in order to build your personal house: your life. You always need to forge ahead.
Take advantage of the experience you acquired to avoid making the same mistakes and make use you of what you learned in the past to turn them to your advantage.
