I’ve Seen The Future

You just can’t believe me
When I show you what you mean to me
You just can’t believe me
When I show you what you cannot see

That song is entitled “Confusion” but I wanted to quote it here, because growing up, I thought it was “THE FUTURE!!!” hahahaha 😀

I just visited my friend Amanda Gravel’s website, Social Honeycomb and read her new post about the future, which started out being about a tattoo, but evolved into a lesson everyone should pay attention to…

My takeaway from Amanda’s post has to do with progression… Progression, as she mentions, from Point A to Point B. There’s the progression from the past to the present and also the progression from the present to the future.

Progression from the past to the present is recognized via hindsight. You get to look at who you were in the past and how you used to act through the eyes of who you are today. You might not have recognized the importance of people’s actions back in the day, but having progressed to the present, often, one achieves a better understanding of what people did for them in the past. That might have been the friends you made that taught you how to deal in life, your parents who paid for your college education and made sure you had the best of everything, your best girlfriend that you’re still tight with while her last three boyfriends have come and gone…. It’s easy to not recognize these things and reach back and give thanks to the people that helped you become who you are today. Amanda’s post reminds us to give propers where they’re due and recognize those who planted the seed that you carried to fruition during your turn in the spotlight.

Progression from the present to the future, as she says, is inevitable… However, that doesn’t mean that you’re going to take advantage of that. Many people give up, because they don’t know any better. Many people assume they can’t do anything more in life and reach a plateau… never reaching their true potential because they stop believing in themselves too soon. The future’s coming… whether we act or not. This is *your* chance to be who you want to be and do what you want to do. Planning for the future and envisioning what you’d like to happen is the first step towards achieving your goals.

It will always be right now.

Right now, you have the chance to build your future the way you’ve always envisioned it.

Make It Happen…..
