The ideas inside of us are what will be coming in our future – along with the thoughts, ideas and experiences we have had in our past – those help us form the thoughts and ideas today that will be potentially there in our future. It’s up to us to act on those and start making them happen.
I think I have put too much weight (at times) on things that have happened to me from my past. Instead, I know now that I should be internalizing those thoughts into action now for a very bright future. The things that lie ahead of us without our action to add to it are really nothing. What lies in front of us in the future – it needs us to be a major part in that – we are the ones that only can make it happen. What’s inside of us is that magic that will take the things in front of us and add life to it.
Pam, who is a friend of mine saw this quote and mentioned “I totally agree...I think what is inside you determines what lies in front of you.” I think she is totally right. In fact since we have control of what is inside of ourselves, we have total control of those things that are in our future. Now, we are not in control of things that will happen to us, things that happen in the world that affect us, along with not being in control of others that will affect us. You know what’s coming next – we are in total control of how we respond to all those things that happen to us.
So knowing that what’s inside us is what helps bring clarity to our futures, why not set out today to begin working on the things that are inside of us?? I know it’s something that I need to continue to work on throughout my life. There are so many ways to do that – reading, changing our thinking, fixing bad habits, strengthening body, mind, soul along with improving and strengthening our relationships too.
Another big thing I think is to really try and figure out where your heart is at with what you want to do with your life. The sooner you ask this the better you, your future, your loved ones, and everyone you come into contact with will be better. As soon as we start working on these things, our present and our future will start opening up with more opportunities. What are some things we can do right now in these areas and others too? I know what I’m working on – do you? I just know I have to do more.
