As humans, we constantly strive to improve ourselves and achieve our goals. And often, the driving force behind this drive is our future vision.

Our past experiences, thoughts, actions, and feelings shape our future visions. They reflect who we are and what we believe is possible for us. And they can pull us forward, motivating us to take action and progress towards the life we want. Or they can drag us back into the past, living a past-present reality instead of a present-future reality. Our future is dedicated to our present moment, thoughts and actions. By the age of 35, we are 90% habits. If you look around your life, most of what you think, say and do is so subconscious that you don’t even realize it.

But it’s important to remember that our future visions are not set in stone. They can change and evolve as we grow and learn new things. And with the right mindset and strategies, we can shape our visions to align with our values and goals. The most important lesson I have learned about creating an inspiring vision for my future is taking the necessary actions in the present that align with the values and priorities I want later. So many moments in life are wasted doing things that we genuinely don’t align with, making us feel drained and lacking.

We have to fill our lives with positive, priority-first goals so that, in due time, we will be on a path to true success.

Here are some tips for being pulled towards your future by your vision:

  1. Reflect on your past: Take some time to think about your past experiences and how they have shaped your future vision. What have you learned from your successes and failures? How have your values and priorities changed over time?
  2. Define your goals: Clearly define your goals and what you want to achieve. Be specific and ensure your goals align with your values and vision.
  3. Create a plan: Develop a plan of action to help you achieve your goals. Break your goals into smaller, actionable steps, and allocate time and resources to achieve them.
  4. Visualize your future: Practice visualization techniques to help you see yourself achieving your goals in the future. This can help you stay motivated and focused on your vision.
  5. Seek support: Surround yourself with supportive people who can help you stay focused and motivated on your vision. Consider working with a coach or mentor who can provide guidance and accountability.

By following these tips, you can harness the power of your vision to pull you towards the future you want. Don’t let your past hold you back — embrace it as a learning opportunity, and use it to shape your vision and guide your actions towards a better future.
