Have you ever had the thought that an older person is the offspring of their younger self. What did that person think 10, 20, 30 or more years ago? Their thinking or lack of it has led to certain actions or behaviors which have led them to where they are today. Are they in a good place today?
Of course that applies to me and you too – our past selves are our parents and we are the offspring. In a sense we are all the children of our past thinking. I say thinking because what we think leads to how we act. Our action or lack of action has a major impact on our circumstances. Small daily actions lead to big changes and results over time. If you smoke every day then in 5 or 10 years time the effects will be very apparent. If you eat well and exercise every day then the results will be very clear in time. The question to ponder is who are you creating today? Who will you be by the end of 2017? Will you be a better person – healthier and happier? Will you be a person on the path to wealth or a person of on the path to poverty? What trajectory are you on today? We are creating our future selves with our thoughts and our actions today.
So let’s take time out today from the hustle and bustle of daily life to reflect and decide who we want to be by the end of 2017 or by 2020. We are all busy but we must take the time to reflect – even for 10 minutes. Decide to create your future self to be the person you want to be. Take control and create your future self.
PS. My book ‘Experiments in Personal Change’ might just help you create the future self you want.
This book is about taking six key personal growth areas and experimenting with them in your life. The experiments are written in such a way as to make them actionable so that you can put them to the test and observe the results yourself. The information contained in the book is designed to be short and easily digestible. If you read this book and take action by trying out the experiments in your own life and reflect on the results, then you will gain knowledge that can change your life for the better.
