“The past is not predictive of the future.”
A short story to share.
Mike is an 18 yr old HS student who has struggled throughout his entire academic career, specifically taking tests. But he’s making his way by, just barely, until he reaches the biggest academic test of his lief, the SAT’s.
Out of nearly 1600, he scores 1480.
Mike returns home and his Mother with all the motherly love she can muster asks How? How on earth? Are you sure you didn’t cheat? They have dinner together and celebrate his incredible scores as they talk about college.
From that point forward Mike decides he is smart after all. After years of consistent skipping, he decides to go to class. He starts to consistently score A’s and doesn’t see a C for the rest of his time in HS. He goes to an Ivy league school and after wards starts a very successful magazine company. Mike grows a multi-million dollar business.
Six years later he receives a letter from the SAT board, there was a mistake. His scores were mixed up, he actually scored only a 740.
People think his life changed when he got the 1480 score. It didn’t. Mike changed his life when he changed his behavior and began to believe in himself. The past is indeed real. But the only time it becomes predictive of the future is if we let it and it changes how we act!
