The future?

Image result for shaping the future

We did not come to fear the future. We came here to shape it.

Barack Obama

 

Our future is what we make it.

We have to take chances in order to take a step forward.

We have to learn to say yes to the things that scare us.

We have to accept the wrongs and move on.

We have to learn from our mistakes and shape the future according to the lessons we learn.

It really is simple but why do we still fear the future?

Is it because we are afraid of what others may say about us?

Is it because we just are not confident in ourselves?

Is it because we have others holding us back?

There really is no simple answer here and it is unique to each of us as it is unique to the world as a whole.

Once we stop fearing the future and just rolling with it, we can shape it!

How are you shaping the future?

  1. What a great quote to begin with, and deep question to end with. We really do have the power to shape our future – parts of it anyway. We start with ourselves and work out from there.

  2. You ask great questions! πŸ™‚ I agree with you that we shape our future by “rolling with it.” When we learn to follow our intuition about which steps to take — and combine these organic knowings with action — we become more of who we were meant to be.
