“Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.”
– Victor Hugo
We do not become wise or successful by dwelling on the past, but by knowing who we are, in the moment.
If you are consistently identifying yourself with what you have accomplished in the past, you are most likely missing what you are capable of in the future.
So, what are you focused on?
Is it leading you to the future that you want to build, or just distracting you from creating your dreams?
Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple asked himself a life-defining question daily: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?”
- “What is the vision of the brightest future I can imagine?”
- “What has to happen for me to start creating an amazing future?”
- “How can I empower myself to take daily actions toward my greatest dreams?”
Tune into your future and define what you truly want it to look like.
