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.
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.
