Whatever you do today, will form the path for your day tomorrow. And whatever you did the day before, would've written your days chapter in life for today.
That is why it's important to live the current day in a way you'd like it to unfold tomorrow. Obviously they'll be the unknown that may change your future path, but it'd still have formed from the past.
Use your past as a learning curve, a tutor, a mentor, a master of wisdom, so to speak. If you ignore the past, how will you ever be in a position to move onto a better future?
Planning ahead is a great mindset to have, but sometimes you have to divert from those plans, and it's knowing when to divert and take another approach. By stubbornly sticking to a plan that has proved time and time again no to work, you'll continue to stall in reaching goals.
There's no such thing as a lucky break, no matter what anyone tells you or you believe.
And I'm not just talking about music, artists and their careers, I'm talking about life. If you don't respect, plan, appreciate and build a foundation that your life's goals can grow on, then it'll never be strong enough to hold the weight of SUCCESS.
The past is your future....Your Life.
