Freud, a well-known psychologist, once proposed " Determinism, "he argues that people's past experiences can affect their present situation, such as when a person grows up in a violent family environment and is most likely to become a perpetrator when he grows up, or if a person chooses to run away from problems in the past, and in the future he may be in a position to avoid the mentality of all things, as Freud put it." Determinism. "

But psychologist Frank has a completely different idea of the past, proposing "meaning therapy," arguing that we are free to decide what impact past experiences will have on us today. While we cannot change what happened in the past, we can change the way we interpret history now, find in the past experience what we want to keep and hope for improvement, and then build the future we aspire to.

The popularity of #10yearchallenge is a validation of the meaning of Frank's treatment, and people decide what they are doing now by looking back, and believe in the process that is now being worked on. It is the so-called "power of Memory" that can lead us to the ideal future in our hearts.

Professor Zhou Xinyue and Gaoding of the Department of psychology at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, in collaboration with Constantine Sedikides and Tim Wildschut Four, a scholar of the Southampton universities in the United States, worked together to study the "power of Memories" and released the results in the Psychological Journal of Science.

But some workers, it is full of fighting spirit, feel that they must succeed. (Recommended reading:"Human map Weather Report" The past has passed, every moment you can re-choose )
