Dr. Patrick Gentempo sends out an email once a week called “Flash Friday’s”. These usually have a thought provoking quote written by him. Here is one of his Flash Friday’s that really impacted me:
Achievement as a byproduct of a specific purpose, requires a vivid memory… not of the past, but who you are in the image of a future you choose to create. If you can clearly remember who you are in that future, you will set attractors there and bring it into reality.
This quote is profound in the sense that Gentempo is asking us to create a future that is so vivid in our minds that we can remember it as if it were the past. A memory of our own future, if you will. And by doing this, when you may feel lost you can draw upon this memory, rather than a fantasy or a wish that may never come true.
Take some time to create a future in your mind and memory that is so vivid that the option of not achieving it couldn’t possibly exist because it is engrained in you.
