learn from the old you

At any one moment in your life, it’s very hard to think that you’re not doing things right.

No one intends to be an idiot, no one purposefully sets out to be a bad person and no one does things incorrectly just for fun.

All of the mistakes we make and the poor qualities about us, they happen, then years later we regret them. It’s never in the moment that we stop ourselves and see the error of our ways.

 

Second Chance

However we do get somewhat of a second chance, and it can be as early on in life as you wish.

Lets say you get to 25 and you realize how much of an idiot you were in your younger years. You change your ways, yet you’re back to believing that the new and improved you is perfect once more.

5 years later at 30 years old, you realize the mistakes you were making at 25 and the cycle goes on and on.

The second chance comes from being self-aware after the first realization.

We learn and grow as we go through life. We’ll all do things in our 20’s that we wouldn’t dream of doing in our 30’s and things in our 30’s that we wouldn’t dream of doing in our 40’s. But you can minimize mistakes quite easily.

 

Self-Awareness

Being self-aware means you’re very good at analyzing yourself, you may even be able to see what others see, rather than being blind to your own flaws.

By simply knowing that you tricked yourself in your youth, thinking that you were great, but in reality you were far from it, you can make your future better.

Something called the projection bias makes us believe that we’ll want the same things in the future as we do now.

If you’re able to learn from your old mistakes and overlook this bias, then you can start questioning yourself before you even make mistakes.

It’s pretty simple really. You’ve already made the mistake of thinking you were living the right way before. Even though you’ve improved and removed these mistakes, you should know that it’ll happen again with each passing year, or collection of years.

When your mind is full of conclusions, there’s no room for expansion. Question yourself continuously, question your methods and always look for new and improved ways of living.

If you don’t you’ll live to regret it. By simply being aware and willing to criticize yourself, progression becomes rapid and regular.
