Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant." - Robert Louis Stevenson
Where we're going is more important than where we are. Where we're going determines everything: our thoughts, actions, and our mood. When life's going to hell, we think negatively, act accordingly, and feel rubbish. When things are getting better, we think clearly, our actions keep pushing us forward, and we feel awesome.
We unconsciously know this. We feel, think, and act differently without realizing why, only to look back later, connect the dots, and see that life was moving in the wrong direction. To become more conscious, visualize the best and the worst possible futures. If you notice yourself feeling, acting, or thinking negatively, ask if you're moving towards the best or worst future, then make the changes needed to get back onto the right path.
Spend 10 minutes visualizing your best and worst futures.
Where are your current actions moving you?
What one thing, if stopped, would move you closer to the best future?
What one thing, if stopped, would move you towards the worst future?
What did you do today to move you closer to the best future?
What's leading you towards the worst future?
Are you proud of where your life is heading?
