Could You Decide It’s Time To Make A Future

Make A Future.

It’s really an interesting topic, this idea of creating the future. Creating what your life will look like down the line. The idea of making something that doesn’t currently exist.

When you mix goals and expectations…well Shakespeare said it best, “Expectation is the route of all heartache.”

But we must have goals to be able to strive for personal greatness. You have to believe they will happen and visualize accomplishing that goal or it will never happen. You have to believe in yourself enough to chase after those goals while still being in the moment.

How the hell do you balance goals with expectations?

Well, I think I finally figured it out.

Reach for the stars.

Find your limits, surpass them, then reach for more.

Visualize what you want, make a plan to achieve it, and then work that plan. Know that your goal is something you absolutely want because it will be a positive addition to your life.

Then…follow through.

But don’t expect for a second that things will be a specific way. When you start thinking that things “should” happen a specific way you are really in for a big surprise.

Things never happen the way you think they will. Most of the time, if you stay open to it all, they will manifest themselves in an even more surprising way than you had predicted.

Expecting nothing and soak in every single minute you are here on this planet. Drink life’s perfect imperfection. The experience of the journey is there to make you grow.

Don’t fight it – you will wear yourself out.

Soak it in.

Be a sponge.

Be willing to experience it all and take in the dip of the mystery of life.

Be willing to do what it takes to make a future for yourself.

    Reach for the moon — if you miss at least you’ll be left with the stars.

    I’ve always loved that 🙂

    Positive expectations are good. The expectations that cause heartache & disappointment are the ones where an individual is attached to outcome & their happiness relies on the result as opposed to continuously striving & trusting that everything works out for the best.

    Maybe Will Sh. was referring to expecting too much of other people, which always leads to heartache.

    Expectations and goals are not even close. In fact, I’m not sure why we learn to expect this-or-that. We need to imagine our dreams, and take forward steps to reach them. Who knows, along the way you may find something wonderful because you aren’t expecting anything.

    I walked to work this morning at 4am, it was a clear sky so I could see the stars… It was quite the experience, looking at the stars and I suppose I was reaching for them as well, dreaming of things hopefully to come.

    Us Americans are too focused on the destination and miss the potential beauty and transformational power of the journey.
