Experience the positive power of future focus – knowing what you want and how you’re going to get there.
It’s much easier to feel resilient when you have a sense of purpose and direction, when you know where you want to go and have an idea of how you’re going to get there. Often when we’re not feeling resilient, it’s because we feel stuck in the present. We’ve got a problem or issue and we can’t see a way out or we’re simply not happy with our lot – we feel a bit rudderless, without a real sense of purpose and meaning in our lives.
So, future focus is about simply that – focusing on the future; thinking about where you want to be next week, next month, next year, in 3 years’ time and so on – and why. Why is that important to you? Note also, it’s about you. Often relationship issues stem from unfulfilled dreams and ambitions. We tend to subsume our own wants and needs for others – kids, partners, elderly parents, bosses – we don’t take the time to make them happen. But they’re important.
