Predicting how your favorite sports team will look in the next few years is pretty simple if you know about the organization. Same goes for the company you work for. But, how about your life? How is that going to look a few years down the line?
Believe it or not, predicting your own future is probably the most statistical accurate prediction you’ll ever make in your life. If you were to bet on your life at Vegas it would be a sure thing. Why do you ask? The answer is YOU.
You are the ace in the hole. You see, “The best way to predict the future is to to create it.” Credited to both President Abraham Lincoln and Peter Drucker, this quote or wise saying is simple logic. YOU can decide how your future will turn out because you are the one behind the driver’s seat.
Of course, it’s fun to be right when your forewarning about your favorite sports teams come true. Sure it’s confidence-building to brag about how big your company will be in a few years then gloat when it all comes to fruition. But let’s be honest, those magic tricks aren’t worth a damn if it isn’t improving your life. In addition, most of the catalyst involved in making your statements true is out of your hands. But not your life.
Your life and your future are in your hands. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Sure you will encounter roadblocks and obstacles, but at least you aren’t crossing your fingers hoping that someone figures out a way to get above, under or around them.
There you have it. Your future in the palm of your hands. You see it, you believe it, you get it done. You have the crystal balls (your eyes silly) to get it done. If you’re thinking that it cannot be that easy, no worries. There is a simple solution to this. It’s also the first step on your way to journey to precognition; Improving your Growth Mindset.
