Mahatma Gandhi has once made this statement that the future depends on what you do today.
A counselor once asked a person how they will feel in 10 years if they do not make the decision to change today?
As we go through our formative years, especially during childhood, we are exposed to a wide range of influences. Based on those experiences, we develop our passions, we dream our dreams, and we developed a set of expectations on how our lives would hopefully turn out.
Nevertheless, to achieve success will require more than dreams and expectations, we also need to persist in our efforts as we continuously strive to achieve our objectives.
Eventually, achieving success can lead to a high level of satisfaction and happiness as we go through life.
It is important to understand that sometimes the journey we are required to undertake can be tedious and very long, but we need to be dedicated and persistent to have a chance to succeed.
There are so many things that are today presented as worthy objectives. Still, many have discovered to their surprised that many of those things are empty objectives because they are ultimately meaningless and without lasting value.
Life is about short-term, medium-term, and long-term objectives, and many of the seeds which we are sowing today will only provide a return on investment many years into the future.
It is always important to use time wisely and carefully. The reality is that every decision which you might make and every action which you take will determine how your future will turn out.
It can be so easy to be distracted, which is why it is important to have a powerful vision to recognize these distractions for what they are and take swift action to remain on course.
Do not procrastinate. Time is costly, always do whatever you can as soon as an opportunity arises. Make a list of the things you cannot do without, and then make a list of the things you would like to have but remember that the first list is critical.
Whatever your plan or dream is, make a plan and start taking action from now so that you will be able to achieve them in the future. The earlier you start, the better chance you have for success.
