The current trend in mental well-being is all about living in the present. When people realize they are always focused on the past or the future, they never really live to their full potential. However, this shift in focus can leave many people confused because they have to balance planning for the future and living in the moment. So what does “living in the future but acting now” mean and how can you apply it to your own life? Let’s take a closer look.
Look at the Whole Picture
By looking at the whole picture, decision-making is a little bit easier as it gives your “next step” context. You get a better perspective outside of what you are going through at the moment. This means to open up your mind and consider the best thing for your family, business, and people who may be affected by your decision. Remember that it is not all about you, even if the selfish part of yourself keeps bugging.
Even with different experiences, each person has a past, present, and future. People use this life context to make decisions knowingly or not. You can do nothing about the past or the present, which is a result of past choices. However, you can make decisions in a way that brings about a better future. To sum it all up, it means that you must take into account the present and the past to create a better future. Additionally, you must develop values, goals, and decisions right now to get you to where you want to be in the future.
Act Now For Results Tomorrow
Without a captivating future, people find it hard to change their behaviors and actions. You must stand in the future to identify the necessary steps that you must take so that they can align with your future. For example, when you look at a future where you are well and healthy, you can eat right and engage in physical activity in the present. Additionally, you can make sure you have adequate medical insurance so you don’t have to gamble on the future. These are just some of the steps you can take now to help make the future you desire more attainable.
Do Not Wait for Miracles to Happen
In reality, nothing comes to save you when you are not satisfied with your current situation. If something is not working out for you and is not in line with your desires for the future, embrace change and learn to grow. Change now and bank happiness for the future. For instance, if you envision yourself living a peaceful life in the future and currently it is full of drama, make changes to surround yourself with people, activities, and environments that bring you peace.
Do Not Fear to Fail
Every human on this earth has experienced the fear of failure at some point. Fortunately, this same fear can help you evolve with the right mindset. Having what you want in mind can help you curb fear and motivate you to keep pushing towards your goals. Don’t let the fear of failure keep you from achieving what you want in your future.
Even the slightest form of action is a step closer to the future you desire. Do not wait until tomorrow to get things done. Act now!
