let the pull of the future guide your life

let the pull of the future guide your life

“Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level.” — Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go

The New Year is here. And while some people would still continue to live in the past and relive the horrors, tragedies and setbacks that they went through again and again, you must resolve to detach from it and only take the important lessons you’ve learned with you moving forward. This will help you design a better and brighter future for yourself. The key, as business philosopher Jim Rohn advises, is to make sure that the greatest pull on your life is the pull of the future.

What would you like to have happen in your life this year?

What new things would you like to try?

What would you like to accomplish?

What big and small things would you like to achieve?

What kind of growth would you like to attain in the most significant areas of your life?

What would you like to happen in your family life? In your romantic life? In your friendships? In your work? In your personal finances? In your intellectual and spiritual journey?

What problems would you like to solve?

What decisions would you like to make?

What good would you like to do and what good would you like to attract in your life?

Don’t hold yourself back. If anything were possible, absolutely anything, what are the possibilities you’d like to experience and see? 

Schedule a few hours of alone time, take your journal, and write them all down. Get clear on the direction you want to go in, and create a vision of yourself and the life that you’d like to manifest in the physical reality. 

Of course, we don’t have control over everything that happens in our life. Sometimes, events and circumstances may go our way; sometimes they may go against us. And that’s where our crystal-clear dreams, our vision and our well-planned objectives can come into play and pull us in the right direction, regardless of what’s going around us. In their absence, you might either find yourself getting pulled apart by unfavorable events or circumstances and any distractions that you encounter, or pulled back to the past, thus losing the opportunity to design the future.

As Jim Rohn said, “Goals are like a magnet—they pull. And the stronger they are, the more purposeful they are, the bigger they are, the more unique they are, the stronger they pull.”

Let your incredible dreams pull you through all kinds of events, days and seasons. Whether you go through harsh winters or scorching summers, your extraordinary goals will keep you going and insulate you from negativity and the everyday struggles. They’ll pull you through some of the most difficult and challenging times.

The new year stands before us, like a blank page in a book waiting for you to write the next chapter of your life. Let your magnificent vision remind you every day where you’re going and what you want to accomplish, and let your remarkable goals help you write the story that you truly desire to live.

Wish you a happy, prosperous and peaceful New Year!
