Realised eschatology

That’s the posh name for ‘living your dreams’ – but it means slightly more. Eschatology – means what is going to happen in the End, the end of your life, the end of time, etc…

Who do you want to be in five years time? Where would you like to be in ten years time?

I’m not gonna ask you to start drawing up a plan, but I do want you to think about the question for a moment or two.

The point is whatever your dreams of the future, I beg you start to live them now!

Don’t wait until this or that is right, start doing it now.

If you want to travel the world then book a holiday!

If you want to change career then start reading up on the subject and do night classes!

Whatever excuses you are using to stop you living your dreams stop them now.

What a waste of time.

Every morning give yourself a second or two, look in the mirror when your brushing your teeth and look at yourself in the eyes and ask yourself where do I want to be in a years time?

Where would I like to be in five years time, in ten years time?

Do I want to be living the life I’m living now?

Because if you don’t start to make even a small change in your lifestyle now, you probably never will, and you’ll always be putting off tomorrow until tomorrow, and when tomorrow comes, there is always another tomorrow… etc…

So look at yourself, ask yourself ‘who do I want to be, how do I want to be – how do I want to feel about myself in the future?’

If you want to be more successful, both finically, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually then that’s a good start.

But if you want these dreams to come true (and they really can) then I strongly suggest that you start to feel that future success now.

That you start to become that which you are becoming.

If you’re finding this line of thought a bit difficult, try this out for size:

What would you do if you were told that you only had twelve months to live? (God Forbid)

What would your priorities be? How would you want to live your life differently? How would you want to be remembered? Who would you want to become?

Would you still do your job? Would you still be polite to people who really piss you off? Would you care what people thought?

Or would you find out what your real priorities are?

Whatever dreams you have of the future – live them now.
