The Transitions Institute

has discovered a simple but startling truth about creating change in one’s life: it is much easier to accomplish all levels of change by focusing on the future rather than trying to alter or change the past.

In our work

with thousands of people, we have discovered that individuals are most powerful and most successful when their intentions and actions are aligned, and are in support of a future they are committed to and deeply desire.

The simple truth

is that you can’t change the past. It’s already over. The opportunity for intentional change can only occur through a clear and focused commitment to a future.
