Never Go Back

“Pissin’ in the wind, bettin on a losin’ friend, makin the same mistakes I swear I’ll never make again.” There was a time in my life where I felt this was me, I kept making the same bad choices over again. Do you ever swear you “won’t do that again” only to find yourself back to making the same choice again. In his book, Never Go Back, Dr. Henry Cloud tells us, “Everyone makes mistakes… even the most successful people out there. But, what achievers do better than others is recognize the patterns that are causing those mistakes and never repeat them again. In short, they learn from pain—their own and the pain of others.”

These are the ten things he tells us to never do again:
• Return to what hasn’t worked
• Do anything that requires them to be someone they are not
• Try to change another person
• Believe they can please everyone
• Choose short-term comfort over long-term benefit
• Trust someone or something that appears flawless
• Take their eyes off the big picture
• Neglect to do due diligence
• Fail to ask why they are where they find themselves
• Forget their inner life determines their outer success
We must overcome our self- defeating life patterns and redirect our mistakes. Take a listen to the youtube video below. It’s worth it.
