Masterful Mindsets ~ Building Your Future Starts in the Present
“Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming.” ~ Alice Walker
When was the last time you took a good long look at your life? Who have you become? How are you showing up in the world? Where are you headed? And most importantly, do you like what you see?
Let’s face it, life happens! Throughout all of life, obstacles come up here and there. If you aren’t careful, those obstacles can take your focus away from your goals. When this happens – when you take your eye off the prize or lose your focus – you can end up on a very different path then you intended. Especially when you aren’t completely clear about what you want your life to look like.
You find yourself 10, 20, 30 years or more down the road of life and somehow, you’ve lost yourself or the vision you had for yourself, somewhere along the way. You have no idea where you took a wrong turn or went down a different path. But here you are, NOT living the life you always dreamed of.
Sucks! Doesn’t it? Now, here’s the good news…
It’s never too late to get back on track and the best time to start is NOW.
Research shows that a key indicator to success is making sure that your goals are relevant to your future identity, which is how you see your future self. However, many people have a hard time clearly visualizing who they want their future selves to be. And that lack of clarity can really get in the way of creating your dream life.
This can occur when your core fears are triggered. And if you become afraid that you can’t achieve your dreams, you may not allow yourself to clearly visualize that future self. However, if you aren’t able to clearly see your future identity, you can easily find yourself once again headed down the wrong track. Why? Because you tend to go in the direction you are looking. And if you don’t have clarity about your desired future, how can you possibly set or achieve the goals that will get you there? So, what happens? You literally create the thing you fear… which is failure of achieving your dreams.
Again, sucks! Right? But, here’s more good news…
You can still create your future identity and you can not only begin visualizing your future you NOW, you can begin creating your future you NOW.
It’s time to refocus your dreams and your goals so you can get back on track and create the future you and the future life you really want. But that future dream begins in the present moment with the present you. So let’s get started!
My challenge to you is to take a good look at your life. Ask yourself the questions above, along with these questions: Is the present you are constructing in alignment with the future you are dreaming of? If not, what future identity are you envisioning? What new goals do you need to set for yourself to get back on track and moving towards your desired life? Consider every area of your life – Relationships, Health, Finances, Parenting, Career, Emotional Well-Being, Spirituality, Education and even your Contribution to the World. What is the future you are dreaming of? Get clarity! Then get registered for my upcoming FREE Back On Track Training.
Oh and once you get registered, share this post with other people in your life that could also benefit from getting their own lives back on track. You can sign up for the training together so you can support each other through your transformation to the future you that you want to be.
