Let Your Past Achievements Fuel You

You’ve done well before, so do it again

There’s a picture on the wall of our kitchen. It’s with the two members of a little team I used to lead. Together we had a load of fun (and stress) working on some interesting projects. Without giving it away, there’s something about that photo that intrigues people.

We had a tradesperson at the house yesterday and they asked me about it. I told the story and realised — I have achieved a lot in the past. And I can do it again.

Every one of us has the equivalent of that photo on the wall. Perhaps it’s a story, a friendship, a link to our pasts where we were involved in something that went well. It gave the satisfaction of “Yes. We did good work.”

Go back to it. Take strength from it. And go again.

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
