Yesterday Can’t Be Found Tomorrow

“A great future doesn’t require a great past.” – William Chapman

Have you ever found yourself wide-awake, staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night, asking God, “How in the world did I end up here?” That question haunts me far too many nights when things get quiet.

What if I had done ____ differently?

If I hadn’t made those choices, what could have been of my life?

Has God given up on my calling, moving on to a more capable candidate? 

What’s fascinating about tomorrow is that yesterday cannot be found there. Yesterday isn’t something we’re headed towards, but rather, what we are leaving behind.

We get so caught up in our regrets and our “what if’s” that we lose sight of the decisions we’re making today that are creating the future. Who you are tomorrow depends upon who you choose to become today.

“Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.” -Tony Robbins

When I find myself staring at the blank space of night, lost in my thoughts, I’m going to begin asking myself this question instead: “Who will I become tomorrow?”
