How to predict your future? Tricky ways!

‘The best way to predict the future is to create it.’ –Peter Drucker

Are you curious to know what the future has in store for you? I am always inquisitive to know what my future holds for me. It is a basic human nature to be interested about ‘what will happen’. Most of you have immense fears about your future. Your fears are mostly related to your mindset and your mind does not predict good things for you. They make you terrified as you have hallucinations of defeat and failure because your thoughts are based on your fanciful assumptions.

Why do you fear your future?

  • You always relate your future with your present hardships.
  • You fear the unknown
  • You assume the worst for you..

Can I predict my future?

  • Yes, you can easily predict your future.

How can I predict my future? I can’t tell what will happen to me some few years later, can I?

  • When you are incessant in your hard work you can be sure of your success in future. When you nurture relationships you can be sure of your happy life in future. So, your thoughts and actions decide your future.

Are you bewildered as to how?

You are what you think you are. If you think you are going to be successful, you will definitely achieve it. But there is a small twist to it. You cannot be successful if you just think and relax. If you do so, it will at best be a pipe dream. Your actions should follow to make your thoughts a reality and in turn both form a lethal combination to secure the future of your life.

There are certain things in life over which you do not have any control. Your birth and death is decided by god and you cannot lift a finger against it. But you are in total control of your life. It is you who live your life, don’t you? You can either make it or destroy it. It is all in your hands.

  • Are you very ambitious?
  • Are you focused towards your goal?
  • Do you work incessantly towards your target?
  • Do you have a positive outlook?
  • Are you prepared to wait?

A ‘yes’ to all these questions predicts a glorious future for you.

How can I have a glorious future when all I see are stumbling blocks around me?

Do not worry about hurdles, as stumbling blocks are actually steps that lead firmly towards your victory if you take your present distress in the right spirit.

It is true you find it hard to stabilize your mind when you face problems after problems in life. They seem never ending and ready to mess up your future. You feel it is easier to let go and to settle down to mediocrity. Being mediocre is very easy; you do nothing and are nothing. Being successful is not an easy joke as you have to be active and alert all the time.

How do I do it?

Fears of your future kill your hope and when there is no hope you cannot work for your success. You should practice hope even when you are in your worst period of life. ‘I will do it’ should be your mantra all through your life. If you do so, you will find the path in front of you clearing and you are able to walk undisturbed towards your aim.

Great expectations about your future make you complacent and dreamy. No expectations about it make you dull and unproductive. Dreams with aim, aim with target, and target with hard work present you the key to your excellent future.

Have you traveled in a car?

Of course you have! What do you see in front of you? You just see the road ahead and the traffic you have to face. At best many yards in advance! Being unsure of your future is like traveling in a car. You are unable to see far ahead and so you see only your difficulties and tribulations and you cringe in fear about the security of your future.

Have you traveled in a plane?

What do you see? You have a panoramic view of what lies below. You see the whole city, which you didn’t see when you traveled by car. The trick to predicting future is having a panoramic view of your life. If you do so, you will be able see your success behind stumbling blocks, victory behind failure, happiness behind unhappiness as your whole life unfurls itself before you.

‘The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.’ – Sir Winston Churchill

You should also realize that journey towards your future will always be jumpy and uncertain. You should not give up half way through your travel, as if you do so you will not reach your destination. An aerial view makes you take hold of your life in an assertive way and when you work towards your success; your future makes your dreams a reality.

The point I find most interesting is that we tend to predict the future based on our current difficulties. I had never thought of it that way before. When things are going well, we tend to see a bright future. When they are not, we think the future will not be good, either. The concept of the "panoramic view" is well given. If I can look at my future from that point of view, I can see beyond the present moment, and find that hope that I am seeking.

Inspiring hub, Mathira. It is true about your car and plane analogy. Often the hardest part is that "panoramic" view, and trusting that you will make it to your destination.
