Last week I watched the first episode of the new TV show FlashForward. It’s a science-fiction program that begins with everyone on the planet blacking out for just over two minutes and getting a glimpse of their lives six months into the future. For some, it’s a distressing view, for others, a joyful picture and for one character, there is nothing. Definitely intriguing, particularly as you watch some of the futures begin to take shape in minor ways! Questions you tend to ask yourself – how did it happen … will the futures actually materialize … do we have a choice … can we change the outcome … why did it happen? Of course you have to watch the series to find out.
What came to my mind as I watched the show were issues that have arisen during my Passion Test workshops. For some people, creating a list of what is truly important in their lives (i.e. their passions) is a difficult task. If I asked you the question, what do you want your life to look like in six months, would you know? More importantly, would you be absolutely clear on the details or would your mind conjure up vague ideas such as “not having a schedule, “getting lots of money”, “working in a job I love” etc. Bringing your ideal life into reality requires absolute clarity. Only then will you have focus and direction. Only then will you notice those opportunities that will bring you closer to your goals.
Coming back to FlashForward, we don’t know what our lives are going to look like in six months, but if we’re not satisfied NOW and don’t start making changes, we’ll end up with more of the same. Isn’t it time to give yourself the gift of grabbing your future “by the horns” and taking the first step towards the life you visualize in your dreams!
