Planning is an essential tool to being prepared for the present but more so, live the present so the plan is executed. Nothing ever goes to plan but the effort never goes to waste. Being prepared, understanding what failed and what succeeded provides hints to what the future beholds.
Our behavior changes when we understand that we are liable for our own self. How much can we blame the outside society, our genes for who we are. If we think we can change, then you can change. It is as simple as that. If you can imagine it, then all you need to do is take one step forward to make it a reality.
Live life but make sure you are always safe – physically, mentally and financially. Eat wisely, think wisely and spend wisely. Spend time or money on what increases your intelligence more than anything else. More knowledge can mean a better planner, an imagination that reaches far and wide and being in the present brings an awareness that only a few ever encounter.
We need courage to see a lot of things through. If we have a vision for self-fulfillment, it needs a lot of courage and persistent. If we have a goal to attain, we need to have courage and persistence. We may feel that lots of things are slowing us down and that could be finances, time, ability etc. However, somehow we have this urge to continue going as if the Universe or just plain Life is giving you signs to advance forward.
I don’t mean to sound all new-agey when I say that the Universe gives you sign but even if we took coincidences as signs, we have to agree that life is pulling us in a certain direction. That is why I feel it is the right thing to be absolutely sure that what you want to go for is worth the investment. You may have to prove things to yourself first and trust me, it is our own laziness that we have to overcome first.
Despite that being said, only you can judge yourself and only you truly make the decision. Don’t expect others to support you in your quest, no matter how well intentioned people may be, it is nothing compared to the support you get from your own self.
Whatever you get from this little message today, just keep going forward with awareness. Make your case if your decision affects others. Then go and strive. Work smart for it. Be persistence and thrive courageously.
