It’s normal for us to fear the future,
because it is full of uncertainties. However, when we are living in fear, it can prevent us from making choices that are risky and ultimately very rewarding. When you want to be a success, sometimes it takes taking risks before that is possible. If you are willing to live on the wild side a little bit rather than sticking with what feels safe to you, you may find yourself taking your life in a completely new direction and enjoying the ride.
However that type of mindset can be difficult, particularly if you are unsure of where you are going. When you do not have a clear-cut future and have no idea of what you want to do or how you are going to do it, things can be extremely overwhelming. Forget taking risks altogether, just living in the next day is risk enough. Especially when you have no idea where you are headed.
That is why it can be very important for you to really accept that you have a future, and that it is something very important. If you do not put adequate thought into preparing for that future, then you are basically just throwing it away. Other situations and circumstances will impact you and shape your future, and you will be standing there with your hands in the air just allowing it to happen, whether or not that is aligned with your personal vision for what you want for yourself or not.
To prepare for the future, you have to be willing to accept that you are going to make a difference. Creating a vision board is a good way to help you to focus on what you want for your future and to consider your goals. If you are not considering your goals, then you are not focusing energy in the direction that you want to go.
You have to be willing to look at the big picture and truly understand that what you do every single day, sometimes, every single moment, can make a huge difference in your life. You have to tell yourself that you need to make conscious decisions that are going to impact your future. Otherwise, you are basically just throwing your time away and not creating anything productive with it.
This is where major planning can really come in handy. You need to outline your goals, starting with the endgame, and then dissect it, going backwards. You will begin to see the path that will lead you to achieving your goal, starting with the small steps that you can begin taking right this moment.
Your future is not just a blank slate. It is something that you have complete control over. As long as you begin to understand the impact of your actions, you will be able to shape your future in any way that you desire. When this becomes clear, he will have no choice but to pick yourself up from where you are now and rise to the occasion!
