Is 2 steps forward 1 step back real?

Can you really move two steps forward and one step back?


I have been thinking about this lately. Can you really move one step forward and two steps back? Is life linear?

Can you really wipe out everything you learn? I am not talking about amnesia or suffering some other brain injury. I am talking about regular personal growth and development. You have probably seen on of those, “You think success is a straight line but is really a curvy line” meme that goes around on success websites.

One thing you notice in those memes is that the line never doubles backs on itself. That is because it cannot double back on itself. Think about it. Can you really move time backward? Of course, you can’t. All you can do is go forward. Sometimes you actively move back, however, you still have the line behind you. Even if the line that is behind you, it is not really behind because you still have the experiences. You still have everything you have learned.

Now is the time to relax and move forward. You are already moving forward because that is all you can do. You might as well move closer to what you want and where you want to go. You have to go somewhere because standing still is impossible, so might as well reach the life of your dreams.

How does fun that sound? Add a comment on how you are going to move forward to living your desired life.
