"The best way to predict your future is to create it"
There’s no question that 2020 was a force to be reckoned with, from a global pandemic and racial injustice to the never ending election process, and not to mention our very own personal challenges. However, at the same time, for many it was an unexpected blessing in disguise wherein they thrived more than ever!
This got me to thinking. What made it possible for some to transform, pivot and thrive in these unprecedented times while others experienced the complete opposite? Those that thrived had predicted their future by creating it in the present, or at the very least they were in the process of it, so when the unexpected arrived they were ready.
While we cannot be certain how things are going to turn out in life, certainly no one saw 2020 coming, what we do have control over are our desires, intentions, thoughts and behaviors.
We’re constantly making predictions all day long. Regrettably, they’re usually unsupportive. “Things will never change,” “I’ll never meet the right man/woman”, “It’s not going to go well,” “I’ll never be able to afford that,” “Life will always be hard.” You get it. Yet, somehow we manage to be surprised when things turn out just as we predicted. No judgement here, I know this place very well.
As this tumultuous year draws to a close and we prepare for 2021, how can we predict what the new year is going to look like? Start by intending and creating it.
If we're going to make predictions anyway, why not make ones that'll move us in the direction we want to go. See, feel, think, speak, get the necessary support needed and most importantly, act!
In my younger days, I was fascinated by psychics, I enjoyed getting a reading and hearing what I needed to look out for and expect. But more times than not, nothing changed, because I didn’t change or do anything different to facilitate a different outcome. I had given up all my creative power to hoping, waiting and wishing.
I finally came to the realization that someone telling me what my future holds doesn’t make it so. Needless to say, I never saw a “future teller” again. I also came to the awareness that my fascination stemmed from my being a gifted intuitive, and that was the draw. If you’re wondering if there is a difference between a fortune/future telling and Intuitive, there absolutely is, will share more in a future post.
So, with that my friends, while there’s no telling how the tides are going to turn, we can stress less by trusting in our innate power to create what we desire. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, “the best way to predict your future is to create it.”
