‘We look at the present through a rear-view mirror, and we march backwards into the future.’ Marshall McLuhan.
Recently I heard from someone who felt that being pigeon holed by others who had known her in her previous role was stopping her from getting ahead in her new role.
Do you ever feel like this? As though you are marching backwards... into the future?
Over the years I have been very lucky to have worked with thousands of people via the UK health service and some felt that they too had been labeled, as unwell.
Many felt that this label was hindering them from occupying a different role in life, perhaps the role of a well person.
If you can relate to this in some way, It can be good to remember that the past is the past and the narrative can be changed. It's in your hands. By changing your mind about how you see yourself and your talents other people will catch up eventually.
