It was time for a seven-seater. A red Ford Explorer, I thought. I pasted a picture of it on the divider in my workspace; right beside my monitor. All of a sudden, it seemed Ford Explorers were everywhere. I finally went to the showroom to closely examine one. It had most of the interesting and exciting features I was looking for but two things made me change my mind – it was too large and it was beyond my budget. A Santa Fe eventually did it for me – everything I desired in the right size and at the right price. Perfect!
So, you! What are you dreaming of? Where do you see yourself in two, five, ten or fifty years? What will you be doing? What would you have achieved by then? What would you like to be known for by then? Ask yourself ‘How do I want my life to be at age 25, 40, 60…?’
‘The path of the just is as the shining light, that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day’. That’s what a wise king said to his son. We should be getting better and better, continuously progressing toward a pleasant endpoint – the perfect day.
What does your perfect day look like? Imagine it. Dream about it. Make a picture of it and paste it on your mirror or another surface you look at a lot. Even better, make it your screen saver.
Albert Einstein said imaginations are a preview of life’s coming attractions. This is one way we influence our future, a way we make input during the ’roundtable discussion’ of what the future will bring us. If you’re not already dreaming, planning, and imagining your future, I encourage you to start now. If you don’t dream today, you will have to deal with whatever life throws at you. If it’s bad, you can only blame yourself.
WRITE IT DOWN
WORK TOWARDS IT
BETTER DAYS ARE AHEAD!
KEEP ON MOVING. DON’T STOP NOW!
Let’s toast to your perfect day and mine. Cheers.
