Truth: Your future is up to you.
Listen: We have established that our actions stem from our thoughts. Our thoughts–sentences in our head– creates actual physical networks in our brain. This is true of all kinds of sentences, including our imagination. Our imagination literally changes our brain.
As we imagine our future, we actually change the present because our brain responds positively to our hopes and dreams!
When we do this in a “positive mode,” we develop a possibilities mindset, in which we see a series of learning opportunities and open doors. And as we imagine our future, we actually change our present because our brain responds positively to our hopes and dreams, and our actions follow, creating a result that we enjoy. This is the “Think-Feel-Act Loop” at its best.
However, this principle is just as true in the “negative”: fearing the future can potentially make what we fear a reality because our expectations change the structure of our brains, impacting what we think, say and do in the future.
So when all is said and done, we truly are in charge of our future.
The good news is that we can learn to create thoughts that work to our advantage in life. It’s work, but so worth it! Stay tuned, we’ll expand on this in two weeks.
In the meantime, start thinking about what you are thinking about. You might be enlightened as to why your life is the way it is!
