Let your history inform you, not define you

Thursday Thoughts:

Let your history inform you, not define you.

It’s important to remember our history because we are grounded in the experience and lessons we have learned. But you don’t have to keep repeating your history. And who you were doesn’t have to define who you are becoming.

This is true for us as individuals and for groups, communities and countries. We can continue to aspire to our highest ideals if we are willing to shed outdated norms and beliefs that no longer serve us.

In addition to my regular leadership blog, I offer “Thursday Thoughts” – food for thought and contemplation.
