The ability to avoid letting your reality determine your future is a powerful skill to develop.
We’re conditioned to let our reality determine much of what we can or can’t do. We’re programmed to think in reverse. Changing this thinking will require focus and practice.
The reality we’re experiencing now is the outcome of our past thinking. To experience a new reality or future, we have to change what we’re thinking now.
What Does Letting Your Reality Determine Your Future Mean?
A simple example is when making a large purchase. What we usually do, and this happens very quickly in our minds, is to assess how much money we have now.
Based on how much money we have, our reality, we will decide if to go ahead with the purchase. Even if it is something we really want, if we believe our reality does not allow us to, chances are we won’t buy it.
This is an example of letting our past dictate our future. What we think is possible for us often comes down to our paradigms. If we know how to recognise and change our paradigms, we can create the future we want.
To avoid letting your reality determine your future, learn not to let the appearance of things influence your thinking.
