2nd Adar, 5770
Whatever has happened until now doesn’t really matter. Whatever will yet happen in the future also doesn’t matter. Only one thing counts: what we say, do and think now.
Our yesterday is a background against which we conduct ourselves today. This background consists of successes and failures, excitements and disappointments. All this the Creator creates as our springboard — a springboard to launch us towards happiness and success. Specifically, the past we lived through and experienced, is what allows our accomplishment and achievement to be the greater. Thus, there’s no reason to worry over it.
The future is also something that shouldn’t trouble us. What we do now decides what we deserve to receive — and what we deserve to receive, we will receive. Good, powerful acts lead to good, powerful results. Poor, weak acts lead to poor, weak results. We simply need to DO the best we can right now, BE the best we can right now — and KNOW that this will lead to our ultimate satisfaction.
Excerpted from “Be Happy and Succeed“.
By: Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Schwartz of “Self-Growth“
