“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. “ – Dr. Emmit Brown
This qoute is how we should all approach life, don’t be afraid to go off the beaten track, do not be afraid to think outside of the box, do not run from challenges…Back to the Future is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love how it shows how every decision we make, or don’t make effects the outcome of our lives. The movie is a reminder that life is not a picnic, but a daily grind. It’s a constant challenge to be better, to do better, and to overcome adversity. In Back to The Future, the biggest adversity Marty McFly faced was making sure his parents still met, and that he made it back to the future without the use of Plutonium. He was able to make it with perseverance, planning, and execution. You have to treat your life the same way. Don’t get lost in the past worrying about the past. Get EXCITED about the future, learning from your past.
REMEMBER, Life is tough! That really sums up what we as people have to deal with on a daily basis. Every step you take, every word you speak, and every action can have a minimal or significant effect on your life. Its similar to Back to The Future, when Dr. Brown tells Marty McFly that the slightest disturbance of the space time continuum could have adverse effects on the future. Our lives are the same way. We make decisions and we then have to deal with the consequences. Be it good or bad its our responsibility to adjust and MOVE ON! Don’t let life circumstances hold you back from life’s suprises. We all have the potential to be great and to do GREAT things.
You will always be stuck in the past, if you can’t accept your mistakes and move on to the future. Remember if life were easy the good times would not mean as much because they would not be significant it would simply be status quo. But, life is not easy, its hard…harder for some than others. But whatever your past transgressions may be, whatever mistakes you may have had in the past. Always remember they are in the past, and you are ONLY as good as your NEXT step not your LAST!
Life is your personal invitation to greatness, but you have to decide if you are going to mope and complain about bad decisions, mistakes, tough chocies, and bad fortune or will you be a champion of courage, persistence and determination and make YOUR LIFE, and those around you GREATER each day. The challenge will never end but you can always WIN!
Be GREAT at what you do today!
