You have no future.
You can’t have what doesn’t exist anymore than I can have a hover board .
You have the present moment, however, and it’s always with you. As long as you’re breathing, the present moment is yours.
The future doesn’t arrive. If it arrives, where is it coming from and how did it get to you? Is it rocket powered?
The future is a lie my friend.
The future is nothing more than a present moment that you live and exist in. That’s all it is, ever was, and forever will be.
Things you should never wait for
Before I delve into this, do you understand you can’t really “wait” for anything? The concept of “waiting” is as much a lie as the concept of “future.” There is only how you choose to live your life in the present moment. You’re never waiting for anything!
Now that I’ve demonstrated that “waiting” doesn’t exist, let me tell you what you should never “wait” for:
You don’t have to “wait” for a perfect “future” to start thinking optimally. Be your best from where you stand. Any thoughts that compromise your present moment must be released completely.
You don’t have to “wait” for an ideal “future” to quit smoking. The present moment is all you’re ever given. Will you use it?
You don’t have to “wait” for a perfect “future” to make the move in life. Business move? Romantic move? Spiritual move? Career move? Goal move? Actualize your full potential move? Whatever it is. What are you waiting for? You’re only given this moment now.
Because the reality is, there is no future. Your very faith in a future is what’s holding you back from using the currency of your life: your present moment. When will you discard this illusion from your life?
Do you still believe in Santa Clause?
How about the Tooth Fairy?
Are you one of those rare humanoids who believe in pink unicorns? (Everyone knows they’re white)
Well, if you don’t believe in the above, why do you still hold fast to a belief in “future”?
Because I can assure you it doesn’t exist.
Now, use what you have.
