While it is true in the physical linear world we need to build on the past and take action for our future. The balance is to stop trying to have a future you want and start being that NOW.
For 5 minutes today put the reality you “strive” for into your mind and imagine it so purely that you “walk in its shoes”. If your dream were so, how would you be different? Be that way.take positive action. If you want it, then be it.
Remember: living in a space where you want something different simply creates the perception you aren’t where you want to be. You have to feel and be “living” the success of what you want, that is when the wheels of the universe move in that direction.
