The future of you

The future of you

What is the future of you? What do you look forward to? In an ever-changing world that seems to stay the same, what piques your interest? What awaits you?

Now some of you I expect are awaiting retirement as your main goal, your expected future. But honestly what is retirement? A time to stop? Or a time to do that which you enjoy? The future is about what is next. Sometimes that which is next is more of the same but with a little twist. Are you implementing that twist?

The great thing about the future is that it arrives each day. Tomorrow is the future. Tomorrow is the next best moment you have to implement your plans. Of course, the best time is now, but that is a topic for another day.

The future belongs to those who are ready and eager to use it. The future is a time that we get to use, not dread it's coming. The future is the chance to do that which you are looking forward to. Yes, there are indeed times to struggle through and put in your time, but was that not at one time the future you were striving for?

There is a saying that tomorrow never comes. For those who are not ready, it comes way too soon, but for those who have planned and prepared, it comes right on time. Regardless of our preparations the future will arrive but will it be what you desire? Not usually if you do not know what it is you desire.

May your future be bright and your tomorrow comes exactly when you expect.

Blessings.

Hi Harvey Lloyd. Good to have your input!

This is a great thought in our quit times to consider. Steven Covey voiced this thought with his, i believe, 8th Habit, Begin with the end in Mind. The future we believe in is what helps us past emotional present times. Life hands us opportunities and also times where the only view is our shoes. A place where we can only see one step at a time. Knowing our end (Future) helps us loot up from our feet and see the potential we already have, and how it may be applied toward such ends. Great thoughts, thank you.

Hay Pascal Derrien, the plan of no plans. Is that a form of Carpi Diem? Or perhaps enjoy the day. Living in the moment works for a while and during these times perhaps more than just a little. Have an amazing day and a blessed week!
