Predicting the Future

Do you ever wish you could predict your future? Now, we are not talking about using tea leaves or cards, or calling some toll-free number and talking to a supposed psychic. What we are talking about is much more accurate and reliable.

If you want to know what your future is going to be like, do not waste your time looking into a crystal ball. Instead, take a look at your present thoughts. You see, your present thoughts determine your future. What you are thinking about today is going to show up in a future tomorrow.

And, if you want to see your belief system, which is just a collection of thoughts you accept as true, take a look at your life. Your life is your beliefs, made into reality.

For instance, if you believe there is never enough, that life is a struggle, that you have to fight for what you get, then you will never have enough, and you will struggle and fight your way through life. You will end every day exhausted.

If you believe there is no limit to what you can do, and adversity just makes you stronger, then your life will be one of achievement and resiliency. Understand that what you see in life depends mainly on what you look for. This means that everything you see, everything you do, everything you hear and think and wonder about is filtered through your belief system.

So, if you want to shape your future into a happy, productive, fulfilling time, eliminate negative thoughts about what you don’t want, in favor of positive ones about what you do want. It’s all about shifting your perspective – that single most important variable in any task, mission, philosophy – and watching the ripple effect in everything you do.
