Succeed By Looking Forward

We all want something to look forward to. The best way to attract it into our lives is to look forward to it. By looking into the future with expectation and hope we are more likely to work with energy and even excitement to make that great future come true.

However, far too many of us waste our time fearing the worst and reflecting on the worst moments of our lives from the past. When I reflect on my past I am amazed at how much time and money I have wasted. If I were to spend most of my time regretting this I would feel too depressed to try to achieve anything worthwhile in the time left to me.

Incidentally we can always find some one who has far more to regret than we have. A few years back I lost ?27,000 (about $48,000) investing in what turned out to be a scam. Today I read about someone who had lost $48,000,000.

Some people become suicidal when they rerun sad or disappointing events from their past. They program their minds with the failures of the past and keep replaying these failures in the cinema of their own minds. These failures can so dominate their thinking that they no longer wish to live.

Robert Ringer, the best-selling self help author, makes this point well:

"We all have experiences in our past, and especially our childhood, that have left painful memories. There is, however, nothing we can do about them. History is written in stone. But we do have the capacity to control how we think and act today. This capacity is known as 'free will.' We are the only living creatures who can change the nature of our existence by altering events."

Instead of analysing and brooding over our past, we need to focus on our future and how it can be improved. It helps to visualise the future we want as vividly as possible and with as much joyful emotion as possible. This will assist our subconscious mind to give us the drive and energy we need to take action towards this glorious future.

A future oriented attitude will clear our minds of much heavy weight from the past that can push us down into a state of hopelessness and helplessness.

If you are facing a problem, don't spend too much time thinking about the problem. Instead focus on the solution and imagine what it is like to have overcome the problem Look way beyond the problem.

I was at a seminar in London recently where a board was used as a symbol of obstacles and problems. Attendees were invited to break the board.

They were told not to focus too much on the board (the obstacle) but to imagine their hand passing through the board and beyond it.

To succeed in breaking the board you also need to hit the centre of the board accurately and with your maximum force. It is no use being half-hearted.

I was amazed at how many people, including some fragile looking members of the audience, rushed to the front to break the board. Surprisingly, some of the more fragile looking succeeded whilst some of the tougher looking people failed miserably!

It makes sense, then, to fill our minds with thoughts of a great future. It's foolish to worry too much about the obstacles and problems which might destroy that future. With faith and determination we can break through these into clear space.

It is a good idea to start celebrating this great future now and to let our positive and cheerful attitude attract our desired future towards us. It is also a good idea to work with 100% effort and commitment.

It has often been said that we attract what we think about most often. This is good news. Instead of dwelling on what we fear, let's think daily and hourly about what we desire. We will then have great things to look forward to which we will eventually experience. In the mean time we can remain cheerful and expectant of good things.

It helps to recite some great affirmation like "Nothing is too good to be true" or "With God, nothing is impossible." Let's expect miracles and then, hopefully, we will see miracles.

When we were young, we all expected miracles. Let's try to keep that same mindset as we get older. If we fill our minds with happy thoughts, like Peter Pan, we too can fly.
