“Seeing your future”

“If you are ambitious then how do we believe in something without seeing how we can achieve… its always faith.” - Tadayoshi Inoue

If you’re an ambitious person like me, how do I stay motivated about all my goals when I cannot see how they will come to me? The only reasonable answer is faith. Some call it having faith in one’s self. Essentially I have to always find a way to know my good future will come to me without the proof. 

I know for many this is difficult. Many people only use faith with certain topics. And faith usually much harder to have the older you get. You have simply seen more of lite thought your experiences and their consequences. 

So what’s the answer? Well I think we must look at out ambitions and goals, which we haven’t completed yet as possible futures. Instead of seeing how they might go wrong or not come see how them might come to you in different ways.

When I was a kid I did this so much more powerfully. Mostly because I just hadn’t had enough life experience to tell me what could go wrong. Now at fifty-two years in this life I have seen and experienced a myriad of outcomes both good and bad surrounding various goals and ambitions I have had over the years. So it is very hard at times to see the optimistic side of accomplishing my dreams. 

The trick is to look into your future as you are dreaming about your goals and life and remind yourself that what has happened to others and myself in the past is not what may happen in the future. My past will not necessarily repeat itself even if I do and chase the same goal. If I thought that I wouldn’t have ever won a National title in bodybuilding! I lost more shows than I won as a matter of fact. 

The key to this for me was to always see each contest as a new endeavor focused at the same out come. So each show I lost didn’t mean I was a loser. Instead it was slowly showing me the path to attaining what I wanted. I just needed 57 shows to learn enough to line up with what It took to win this kind of title. 

Yes we can be disappointed but be careful negative emotion can block you from the important learning that losing provides. My losses really became my best mentors and teachers in the 37 years I have been in bodybuilding. 

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so are you,
