“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” ~ Goethe
Consider there are 4 possible variations of your future. It all depends on how you view life, and what context you are coming from. Many of us need to be reminded time and again that every moment in the future and the present is a new possibility – where anything is available that you are willing to create and take a stand for.
The 4 possible variations of the future are:
- Hopeful future – we hope the future shapes a certain way
- Inevitable future – we can predict that certain things are bound to occur whether we like it or not i.e. aging for instance
- Probable almost certain future – if things continue the way they are going today, the future will shape up a certain way
- Breakthrough Future – This is a future where you get to choose powerful and invent your life.
The first two future states above are indicative of some or the other variations of the past and how majority of the world live their lives. However the last two have a certain amount of influence and gives us the power to create. I like the last option, where one gets to create and generate a future that is devoid of any limitations and is based on the foundation that anything is possible.
Dissecting this a little further for the skeptical mind – some of us may still have the cynicism that not everything is possible, and the reason we harbor such a thought process is based on our experiences of the past and what we see the world to be. Although, we miss the point that we are the ones who have given the meaning to what is happening around us, and who we are as individuals.
The human potential is infinite, and can be, do and have anything they set their mind to. It all depends on the context we are coming from.
So, commit to an invented life that calls to you and take a stand such that events and circumstances will shape around your stand for the future. And that is living powerfully, living fully and living fully self expressed.
