Predicting the future: The Secret to Getting it Right

I recently heard someone say that it is very easy to predict the future. The tricky part is getting it right.  But there is one prediction we can make that will be spot on every time.  Look forward one year, two years, five years and you can count on one thing with certainty:  Something will have changed in your life. You are going to be somewhere other than where you are today.  The best question is not where you will be.  The most powerful question is who will decide.

So many of us have found ourselves recently in a new place.  A place that is quite unfamiliar and new.  That can make it exciting – or scary – or both.  The key then seems to be knowing how to remain steadfast where it matters while developing an agility in other areas that allows you to adapt to the ebb and flow of your next season in these portfolio lives of ours.

Here’s where I believe we have to start:  How do you define success now?  When you hear the word – what image comes to mind?  It may be time to deconstruct success and examine its parts and then bring it back in a better form, one that serves our purpose as we are now as the beacon it needs to be to guide us through that maze.

What I have learned is this:  I can predict the future, because I create the future.  Whatever I believe can be, will be.  Whatever I believe I can do, I can. Whomever I choose to be, that is the person I can be.

How do you define success now? If you need help with that, let’s have a conversation.

Live today like you want tomorrow to be.

Live well.
