The past is not a reliable indicator of the future.
Learn From The Past, Live In The Present, Believe In The Future
Too many people ignore this fact and use their direct experience to determine their limits. Dwelling on past mistakes or entertaining anxiety about future events is an equal waste of time that imperils the present.
Taking our eyes off what’s going on right now means are actions suffer. There’s ALWAYS
something you can do to improve your situation, and it doesn’t matter what exact tactics you take.
What’s crucial to your achieving your end results is what you do TODAY
. It’s that simple to understand, allow it’s much harder to implement and maintain. Worries preoccupy the minds of most modern people. They feel they have to go in a thousand directions at once with lots of demands on their time and money. They feel stress regularly, and it manifests through an anxiety about what’s coming next.
People who can push worries out of their mind long enough to concentrate on the task at hand triumph. Mental distractions are an impediment to progress, especially when coupled with negative emotions.
Believe That the Future Takes Care of Itself Through Right Action
Living in the future is not acceptable because you need to deal with today’s events to get there. Spending too much time daydreaming about future events (positive or negative) that have yet to happen drains you of the energy you need to deal with challenges that arise every single day. If the future is troubling to you, that’s a strong indicator that you must do something in the present to right your course.
There’s no such thing as predetermination. You don’t need to obsess about the future because your actions in the present adjust the potential outcomes! You are not tied to any particular course of action because you have the power of determination and the gift of free will. You decide how your future looks, and that’s pretty much what you’ll experience. Everything you do right now impacts the outcome down the road. That’s why taking the right steps is always going to be your best option overall.
The future is crucial, but cannot compare the present. The past represents final conclusions that you may interpret, and that teach you lessons. Once you understand what you need to, let it all go and return your point of view to what’s going on around you right now. If you’re willing to do that, better outcomes are on their way.
