Find out why it is important to be in the present facing the future as the more we talk about the past, the more we're likely to re-create it.
So, when we talk about the future, are we supposed to be constantly in the future instead of being present? People often ask me this – “Aren’t I supposed to be present instead of being out in the future somewhere detached from the present?” Well, the truth is, we want to be in the present facing the future.
Most people are facing their past - seventy five percent of the time people are talking about the past. You know, if people drove their cars that way, we’d be looking out our rear view mirror seventy five percent of the time and we’d only be looking forward twenty five percent of the time.
So, having a fantastic future means giving up all hope of having a better past. And moving in that direction, talking in that direction, speaking in that direction; the more we speak about the past, the more we’re going to recreate what happens in the past. But the more we talk about what we want for the future, the more we’re likely to create that in our lives.
