Historically, people who trail tend to pick over what’s left in the wakes of winners. Winners make wakes, which means, winners are going forward.
Winners move any way they can, not any way they are allowed to. And not in the way that others have moved. Movement must equal course correction, so winners adjust.
Winners stay focused on what they want to accomplish. Accomplishment is one-hundred percent new activity. New activity has nothing to do with the past.
Learning from the past is forming useful ideas from legacy information. Dwelling on the past is facing backwards and standing still.
Be prepared for negativity. Someone in your party, that’s their biggest luggage. You don’t want them to drop their bag. You want them to switch it out on their own, empty it, exchange it, and to do whatever it takes to sort it themselves. Maybe they’re loaded with negativity because that’s all that happened to be around them when they had the opportunity to pick up what they could.
Winners stay fluid by forgetting. They park old glories and seek the new. They don’t languish over failures and setbacks. Winners only carry what’s useful, and stick with a team that steps up.
