Each day has a different story. But in all, you have enough power to decide what to do, where to go and how to do it. Your life is yours alone. This is what makes us say: your future depends on what you do today. That responsibility is always on your head.
Do you believe with the notion that your future depends on what you do today? Actually, I am not calling in for an argument. But I would like to give you one or two reasons why you owe your future success or failure to yourself. It is something we cannot see so it freaks out millions of people.
Well, just stay calm and let me share the truth about how anyone can shapen his future in the best way he can. Over a couple of months now I have been writing a lot about this unknown friend called “destiny.” Huh, we wish we can predict with a hundred percent accuracy that this and that are what will happen in the future.
But it doesn’t work that way. And I will never advise you to consult spiritual mediums about your future. Why? It’s an abomination unto to the Lord.
Every minute you spend today is a contributing factor to your tomorrow. The preparation must begin now. But have you been preparing yourself enough to show off a broad smile in the subsequent years ahead of you?.
What is this thing called the future?
We can’t even see it and so we can’t control it. It is only today that we see and have all the choices to create an effect on things happening around us. The little things we do today bring to us the respective reward…
We are told the so-called future could be tomorrow or years later. That is very interesting. I remember an old self-employed man who used to tell me about his future plans. And I will stand there dumbfounded. Oh uh… Upon this old age, he still make plans for the future. I would throw this nagging question to my self and shake my head.
Wow… So an old man could even have future plans. What about an energetic young guy like me?. There are a lot of years ahead of me. And so it is good to plan something worthy and work assiduously towards it. It wouldn’t be an easy thing but the pay off would always be great.
Now let me take a minute and ask you what are you doing today? That little things you do each day would reflect your future. So think deeply about:
1. How you spend your time
2. The kind of people you associate yourself with(positive or negative)
3. Your goals — are they realistic
4. The will power to put everything in motion without slacking.
By setting a realistic goal today — you give an assurance to your future life. Yes, because you have a plan that you are building on. Just stay focused and let hard work do the magic charm. Don’t be in haste because we are affected by natural laws — breaking them wouldn’t end well with you so be careful. Mind your own business.
The results wouldn’t come overnight. But eventually, you will see it shine beautifully like the rainbow. There is nothing beautiful than seeing a long-awaited dream come true.
There is this saying that I like most:
“Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happens if you don’t have a plan.”
Will Your Future Thank You Someday?
Since I want you to know that your future depends on what you do today — I would like you to personally judge yourself. Yes!, use your thoughts, your plans and what you are doing today to judge your future. Do you think it’s going to be beautiful or horrific?.
I have already talked about how you can take charge of your destiny. So forget about all the negativities. Step forward and do the best you can. Do the right things and don’t just believe that you will be successful. The actual magic charm is to work hard. But please don’t forget to put God first.
Your Future Depends On What You Do Today
Imagine I ask you this question in an interview: “What would you be proud of in the next 5 years?.”
Actually, I don’t want you to be like the stupid guys who will answer by saying:
“I had a lot of fun, played a lot of video games, partied with friends, spent $3000 on shopping, traveled to different places, made more new friends and blah blah blah.”
Uh oh, such a shame can’t have anything better to do with the future. It is a total failure to live your today’s life like this. Such kinds of mediocre people’s needs would make them failures in the future. Because they have wasted their precious time which is irreversible. Unless they renew their minds to set goals that are worthy and realistic.
The Bible has even said you reap what you sow. So if you are saving money for the future, working hard to see your dreams come true and staying away from bad influences; you will surely achieve greatness. What you do today determine your future, so why not plan everything today and fight for it?.
To finalize everything, as rational human beings, we desire to achieve greater things and leave good legacies behind. But things don’t work out just like that. You must be willing to sacrifice your time, money, energy, knowledge and other resources to create your dream life.
Nobody can live life for you. Your parents have done their part. Like a wild animal that has let its offsprings hunt for their own food. Your part is to use your reasoning power and work hard… Welcome to the future.
