We don't all have 20/20 vision, but we ALL have 20/20 hindsight. When we know better, we do better. Life is full of decisions and obstacles that shape and mold the landscape of our lives-- but, it isn't the mistakes or shortcomings that define us. It's how we pick ourselves up afterwards, and this is where your hindsight comes into play.
Hindsight is the ability to understand an event or situation after it has happened. Do you remember doing something, and later saying, “Man, I should've done that this way, or maybe I shouldn't have done that at all?” Sure you do. At some point, we all had this epiphany.
Throughout the course of life, I'm sure we'll have several more. But therein lies the beauty of 20/20 hindsight; it helps you properly adjust and strengthen your plan so you don't repeat the same mistakes. A wise man learns from his mistakes, but a fool is doomed to repeat them (or worse, he blames someone else for them). We are living in a time now where hindsight is needed just as much as foresight.
We need visionaries that are able to see and shape the future, but we also need wise men with hindsight to help correct issues when things go awry. See, hindsight is like a pair of glasses. When the vision gets blurry, they put everything back in perspective. So, never be afraid to dream or have a vision, because failure is just the driveway to success. Nothing great ever comes easy. Hard work and determination will always pay off when you truly believe in your worth. Don't ever be afraid to chase your dreams. Just know what to do when you catch them.
This is the moment in time where we must seize all the opportunities afforded to us -- where hindsight is golden, and speaking out is the new wave of the world. Just remember, we don't all have 20/20 vision, but we all have 20/20 hindsight.
When we know better we do better. Peace and love.
