Create Your Future Now!

Do you love movies, TV shows, dramas and songs that depict stories, scenes and relationships of your wildest dreams?

People often watch movies, TV shows, and dramas, and listen to songs to feed their desire to live the kind of life depicted in these fantasy lands.

  • I want to be like that person!
  • I want to live the kind of life that person in the movie is living!
  • I want to have the kind of relationship depicted in that drama!
  • I want that life/place/relationship I see with my own eyes on TV in my life!

Wishful thinking vs Reality 

  • Do you truly want to live the kind of life you have always dreamed of?

  • Will you live the kind of life you have always wanted to live?

The questions then is what are you doing today to bring about that change in your life, a transition from wishful thinking to reality in your life?

Or are you content with the way things are?

Would you be satisfied with that wishful thinking in your head to stay as it is only in your mind, or are you taking steps to bring about change in your reality today?

Here's a confrontational question.

  • What have you done this year to transform your reality from that of wishful thinking to that of your wildest dreams?

It can be very disturbing if one has lived so far this year with nothing to reflect on in terms of steps taken to bring about that change.

Because if you have lived so far this year just like the way you have lived in the last five years, it is very likely you'd spend another year in the same way you have lived this year.

Create your future NOW!

If it's 5pm 28/11/2012 now, 6pm 28/11/2012 is my future.
6pm 28/11/2012 will become NOW an hour later.

If I make some changes in the direction towards my ideal life  even if they may be miniscule, my life at 6pm 28/11/2012 will be different as a result of the changes made NOW!

Multiply that by 7, i.e., a week later you'd be living a life closer to that of your ideal.

Multiply by 30, i.e., a month later, I'd be living a life even closer to that of my ideal.

Multiply by 365, i.e. a year later, you and I would be living a life much more closer to that of our ideal.

What was once just wishful thinking becomes a reality in our lives once we realise the only way to bring about that change is through changes made right NOW!

My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, my goals are impossible.
All are of no value unless they are followed by action.
I will act NOW. I will act NOW. I WILL ACT NOW!
