Your Future is Determined by Your Actions Today!

What you do today, not yesterday, is what will determine how you live your life tomorrow.

Its unfortunate that so many people spend time regretting yesterday, stewing over it, planning their life around it when its over, gone, finished! Yesterday in no way can impact tomorrow. "Yesterdays" only ruin your ability to create a tomorrow.

Consider your marriage: For a marriage to prosper you have to keep your attention on the future of it. Things like dates, dinners, plans, vacations, new adventures, mutual goals and projects are what will ensure its future. The marriage will not survive on the love of yesterday, but only on what is created in the future.

Take your business. Let's say you want to build your customer base and haven't been doing that for some years. The only thing that matters now is that you see how you want your future to look and then take the actions necessary today in building your customer base from here on out. No reason to spend time on yesterday as it is only filled with regrets, remorse, guilt, etc.

This is why newspapers are so damaging for people to read! Because they are focused on yesterdays not tomorrows. And the only time they discuss tomorrows is when they are projecting something negative and then compare to some other past devastating event!

Your future is a summation of your actions today, not what you did or did not do yesterday! Read newspapers and you are less likely to take positive actions at creating a positive future. Because the newspaper is written with the past in mind! This is why thousands of people are benefitting from my training CD's, as the material I teach constantly gets you to focus on your next action, thereby causing the listener to take positive actions today and create a great future tomorrow!

You can learn from the past but what you do today, not yesterday, is the only thing that will determine your success tomorrow! You can learn where you picked up the nail that gave you a flat; which would be good to know so that you avoid that spot of the road in the future, but right now, I suggest you change the tire as quickly as possible, be thankful you didn't have an accident and get on with your trip! Put your attention on where you are going, not on the nails of the past, and step on the gas pedal of action!

Only your actions of today will impact and ensure your future! The next thing you do or don't do is what will create the future for you! Taking any action to build your client base is better than none at all. And the more action you take the more your future will look like you want it to.

Anytime things get a little slow for me, these are the five steps I take to make sure my future shows up the way I want it to:

- Put my attention on and write down what I want my whole future to look.
- Then I put my attention on and write what I want certain areas to look like, for example a specific project.
- Do ONLY those actions necessary to create that future.
- Do those actions in massive proportions.
- Hire someone else to help me promote and continue those actions!

Forget yesterday, forget five seconds ago, and take action right now on your future.
