Chapter Five: Your Future

“We can do anything we want, but we can not do all the things we want. We must decide.”
- Hans Glint

“Your mind, while blessed with permanent memory, is cursed with lousy recall.  Written goals provide clarity.  By documenting your dreams, you must think about the process of achieving them.”
- Gary Ryan Blair

 

Our times are fantastic.  More than at any previous time in history, now is the time wherein it’s truly possible to do anything.

We can recall countless examples of people who have realized their dreams, and more will come.   You will be one of them.  Manifesting our dreams into a realization takes consistent effort.  We will always encounter roadblocks in the path to happiness, and we must overcome them.

Only a firm and well-thought of goal will give you the drive to follow through and pass these barriers.  And you also have to be passionate about your goal.  With the right plan, you will be unstoppable in your progress.

We all want many different things.  Sometimes the things we want are coherent, and sometimes they are not.  Sometimes the goals we have reinforce each other and drive us forward; sometimes they clash and cause us to lose momentum or even come to a standstill.  We must evaluate the pros and cons with the alternatives we devise and come to a conclusion.

Then we must empower ourselves to make the decision.  With the decision comes two things; the things we are going to do, and the things we will not do.  Many people have dreams they do not want to give up.  Do not fall into this trap.  If you have inconsistent dreams you must let them go.  When you have let them go, you will become lighter and freer to pursue the dream you decide to go for.

We usually overestimate what we can do in one year.  At the same time, we also underestimate what we can do in 10 or 20 years.  Why?  Because of our impatience and lack of perspective.  We can easily think one year ahead.  But when we think 10 years ahead, we lose the vision.  It is almost as if we don’t think we’ll get there.

The only way around this is to raise our long-term awareness through writing and doing a life plan. It has been proven again and again that in years one person — even you — can change the world!

If we have 10, 20, 30, 40 or more years left, then we could potentially change the world several times over in our lifetime.  So there is plenty of time to do anything you want.  Embrace this.

Consider that in one year, all of the below is hard to do:

•  Build a fortune.
•  Create a family.
•  Make people change their minds about something.
•  Start a revolution (like the French, the American, women’s liberation, etc.  There is still plenty of  injustice and wrongdoing for you to put your energy into.)

But if you allow yourself a time-frame of ten years, you can do all of the above and much more.
