In one of our previous blog posts, we talked about the importance of having a perspective and how it will help you in times of need.
When you have a perspective for your future, it will become much easier to not give up or do something reckless and stupid, the consequences of which could haunt you for years to come.
Many of you asked, ‘Well, how can we develop such perspective?’
In today’s article, I will answer this question.
Developing a perspective does not have a strict guideline.
Everyone does it in their own way.
If I were to explain mine, you would understand the point more clearly.
Every time I feel down or contemplate doing something that would be detrimental to my physical or mental health, I think about my future self.
The future self that is looking at me five years from now. That person is not fully shaped at the moment.
He is pale and ambiguous. What I decide to do in that particular moment lends some shape and form to my future self.
That form could either be something that I am proud of or something that I hate or despise.
With this perspective, I avoid doing something that I know to be wrong.
Decision after decision, and day after day, that image becomes clearer and the ambiguity fades away.
Eventually, five years pass and I become the very person that I had once envisioned, but couldn’t see clearly.
How that person is shaped is all about the decisions that I have made during these 5 years.
This is what I would know as having a perspective for your future self. With it, you can avoid folly whenever it comes your way.
As you may have already realized… different people have different versions of this perspective.
Throughout the life of this blog, we have talked about the importance of mindfulness regarding concepts that should come to our aid in times of need.
Your perspective for the future is one of these concepts and you should be mindful and conscious when it comes to making important decisions.
Remember: Whenever you wanted to give up or felt like doing something that you know is wrong, think about your future-self waiting five years down the road.
Your decision will ultimately give him shape!
A BIG HUG!!
