Have you ever had a before and after moment?
Your life was a certain way before the moment happened and after it happened life was never the same again.
Some before and after moments happen over which we have no control; a death, an accident (good or bad), a lottery-style win.
At other times, we determine that something that happens to us is a before and after moment. We say to ourselves either, “I’m not going to continue the way things were before this,” or, “From this moment I’m going to make sure that things are like this going forward.”
Henry Ford said, “Whether you can or you can’t, you’re right!”
Accidents happen, but in the vast majority of cases we determine whether the situation is a before and after moment in our lives.
