Indulging in an enjoyable recollection of past events is where reminiscing begins.
The significance of this idea, as it relates to leaders, is to recognize the value of reflecting on the positive events accomplished.
Memory is one of the most powerful functions of the brain as designed by God. The ability to remember affords us the opportunity to consider areas in life where mistakes were made, and by simple reflection it can prevent us from making the same mistakes.
Memory also opens the portholes of our mind to reminisce about the events and decisions of life that provided comfort and success.
Leaders who are able to reminisce about past events that build upon achievement and victories over trials or failures can strengthen the morale that motivates others to dig deeper to find something inside that drives who they are and where they want to go.
The power of reminiscing makes the difference between being consumed with regret over past mistakes and the elation of knowing something better is ahead.
