“We don’t fear the future; we shape it.”- Barack Obama
Even though we don’t know what will happen next, but that shouldn’t stop us from living our lives. The past is the past. The present is the present. And the future will be the future. You can’t change your past, but you can’t move forward without learning from it. Your past is there to teach you if you let it teach you. We learn from the past so that we can make better decisions in the future. You can’t ignore your past. I can’t ignore my past. The best thing is to learn from it.
The future is not possible if we ignore the past. We will continue to make the same mistakes that hurt us in the past. If you want to do something differently, you must think differently.
Yes, the future is unknown, but don’t let it scare you. Don’t be afraid of the future. Don’t worry about it. Live in the now. If you want to make your future better, you must focus on your now. The present moment. This is the best time to get your future right. Because what you are doing right now, right where your are, is making your future for you. If you want a better future, don’t be afraid of it, make it. It is yours to make.
John F. Kennedy said, “No one can be certain what the future will bring.” He was right. No one knows what the future has in store for us. That is why we should NEVER waste the time we have on earth. You can change your future if you start now. If you want a better future, do better things today. If you want great relationships in the future, start meeting the right people today. You are responsible for your own future. The future you are looking for is right in your own hands. It is yours to make. It is yours to keep. It is yours to expand. The choice is yours.
The future is scary, but don’t let that stop you from embracing it. It is the future. We don’t yet know it. We haven’t lived it. It is the zone of the unknown. What we don’t know is always scary. But don’t let it scare you. Even though you don’t know what to expect, but if you prepare for it, the future is yours.
