A lot of personal development gurus preach that the past does not equal the future and I agree that's true. But it is not necessarily true. For one, most people don't truly rise above the past circumstances in life. I've never seen evidence that the majority of people rise above their personal history.
I'd say that the past does not need to equal the future, but it probably will if you don't come to terms with it. If you come to terms with your past, you are prepared to create a compelling future. Coming to a quiet and honest acceptance of the past is critical. It isn't a given, however. This is what we're talking about today with Dr. Shapiro, so please listen to this episode. You'll learn a great deal about how to move on from your past in this one hour show.
