Do you ever take the time to reflect on your past and recount the actions you took to get to where you are today? Dr. Robin says if you don't, you are doing yourself a disservice. "One of the huge mistakes we make is we get into a situation—positive, negative, good, bad, enlightened or in the darkenss—but we don't ask ourselves that very fundamental question: 'How did I get here?'"
Whether your bank account is overdrawn or you just landed your dream job, Dr. Robin says you need to remind yourself how you got to that place. "Was it just something that happened magically? Or did I begin to put things in place?" she asks. "At the end of the day, at the bottom line, your answer has to be something about you. You [have the power to] radically transform and change in this very moment."
