Almost every choice that we make every day has its consequences, good or bad, in the future.
You prefer to stay in the known, familiar environment, making decisions based on past experiences or you are curious, adventurous, and ready to explore the unknown?
You are driven forward by your vision, pulled by the image of your future self, or your past is holding you back?
As for me, a couple of months ago, almost every decision I made used to be a battle between my present self and my future self, a battle between the two mindsets.
The old mindset is telling me: you don’t know, you have never done that before, you are not ready. My future self is whispering in my ear: you are good enough, you can do it, it will be fun, it will make you happy, go for it.
My current self wants everything now, want it all and want it now.
💎 My future self is telling me to take the longest path, don’t skip stages, as I might lose valuable lessons along the way.
My present self is telling me to do it now, fast. Therefore, I am rushing, getting stressed, overwhelmed, anxious.
💎 My future self, being more gentle whispers: hey, enjoy the ride.
And the truth is if sometimes I listen to my present self, the results are temporary, and it often turns out that the decisions I made, did not bring me any closer to my future self.
💎 When I make my decisions listening to the wiser future self, the results are for long-term, making me happier, more balanced, giving me a sense of freedom.
In the past few months, I caught myself listening more and more to what my future self is telling me. Not a surprise that I feel better, my decisions are more in alignment with my vision.
