Forecasting Possibilities

Even though the future can not truly be predicted, we can, however, use our awareness to forecast future possibilities. Forecasting possibilities means we're willing to look at the future and see what a choice is going to create. Our awareness is the tool to know what the future might look like.

The starting point is about being aware of what's going on out there in the world, what's happening now and what has occurred in recent times. This could be from recognising changes in the society, sciences, technology, environment and so on. We must constantly be in the question "What do these changes and innovations mean?" and  "What is the likely impacts of these changes and innovations? "

These questions are not supposed to forecast the future, they are being used to look at what's currently occurring. When we are asking these questions we aren't asking, "What will the future look like?" We are asking instead, "What choice do we have and what do we have to choose today to create the future?"

We have to create today in order to have what we want tomorrow

What creates the future is what we do today, in the present moment. The future requires choices and actions - now. Our choices and actions accumulate and have an impact on what the future will be. So, we need to ask - "What can we do now to prepare for future possibilities that will shape our life, our business and our future?"

So, to begin to create our future today, we have to embrace a new awareness of different possibilities that will not just transform our life or our business but also act as a catalyst to transform society and even the world. This is truly possible if we choose to expand our zone of awareness beyond our normal ways of thinking so that we can be on the alert for what is new and different, and envisage what the options and possibilities could be. 

We have to become more aware of emerging trends, and  the innovations that are being generated in the world right now. We must expand our capacity to see the landscape from multiple angles and ascertain how we can capitalise on it. 

We have to be willing to embrace change and consider the impact of emerging trends. Whenever and wherever we notice an anomaly or oddity, we must envision what the new landscape might be if what we are perceiving is a signal of powerful change. Most importantly, we must envisage how we might take advantage of the new possibilities.

To consciously create our future requires that we go to question - “What’s possible here? What choice do I have? What choice do I need to make here?", and most important we must ACT on it. We have to create today in order to have what we want in the future.

 

 


You Want To Go For What You Love

The people who love what they do and do it because it brings them joy are the ones who will create greater possibility and make money at it.  The energy you create from is what creates and generates your life. 

If you could wake up every single day to do one thing to create your life and living, what would it be?

"Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart."     ------- Rumi

 

New Possibilities have no history!

Our assumptions and points of view determine how we create our life, our reality and our future. The way we perceive, judge, and react to events throughout the day is based on our assumptions and points of view, which then anchor us in our view of what reality is. When we don’t judge what’s right or wrong, every choice we make and every action we take can lead to new possibilities. 

Imagine what your business and your life would be like if you could function without judgment, without reasons, or justification and create a life that goes beyond the limitations of what the rest of the world thinks is important.

Perhaps the biggest block to being successful is our point of view of right, wrong, good, or bad. When our mind is relentlessly going on about how wrong or how right things are, we diminish our ability to take action. And whenever we judge something, information that doesn’t already match our judgment cannot come into our awareness. When we have a fixed point of view that something is correct and right, or something is terrible and wrong, there is no room for something else to show up.

We have to be willing to change the points of view and beliefs that keep us moored in the limitation of this reality or nothing will change in our life or business.

5 Tips for Creating Your Own Future

What are you creating as your future? Most people don’t have any idea about what they would like to create as their future. In fact, it is all too common for many successful executives to create strategy for their business, but leave their personal future to chance.

It's more common for people to be quite passive about the future. They see the future as unknowable and an abstract event way out there, that is separate from them.  And for them, this is true; this is their reality. They are at the effect of change and never know what is going to happen next. They don't have awareness of emerging trends or what's going on in the world that could impact their future.

The main reason many people fall short of their own ability to consciously create their future is the same reason most companies fail to achieve their targets: they are stuck in the past or the present and cannot see ahead in developing a strategy that can lead and shape the future of new possibilities. 

What if you could choose otherwise?  Here are some tips that will assure your success.

1. Cultivate a mindset of the future - It is essential to consciously and deliberately create the future and be aware of the future implications for your choices and for everything you do. Your future is something you create with your choices. Every choice you make determines what your future can be. So when you make a choice, recognize what limitations are being generated with that choice. 

2. Expand your awareness - It takes the willingness to be aware of everything, which allows you to perceive different possibilities. It also requires you to expand your awareness and develop clarity of vision to see beyond this contextual reality. If you are willing to have the awareness to know what is happening and where you are going, you will be able to consciously create your future and generate something different. As Lewis Carroll said: If you don't know where you are going, then any road will get you there. 

3. Keeping an eye on the Big Picture - cultivate an ability to be aware of future trends and how these trends may affect you and how you can leverage off them. Rather than closing your eyes to forewarning indications and hoping that things don’t change too much, you must be willing to break with your fixed points of view and your conventional practices and discover different ways of seeing the world

4. Embrace Change - Be willing to recognise that changes in the future can be disruptive. The changes that are taking place globally are unprecedented in their scope. They are generating unlimited opportunities and inimitable threats. If you can perceive these changes as strategic advantages and opportunities, you will be more likely to recognize a new possibility.

5. Be on the creative edge in the present - Being on the creative edge means you're always in a mode of question, choice, possibility, and contribution. That's the place you need to live from. Your questions will assist you to see things through the lense of curiosity. Your choice creates the future every time you choose, you make a choice today and the future gets created by that choice. Possibilities are endless, only limited by your already formed points of view of what must be. Everything is a contribution, if you are willing to be aware of this and leverage everything to your advantage.

You have to create today in order to have what you want tomorrow.

The key to cultivating powerful emotional intelligence

Living as the question is the key to cultivating powerful emotional intelligence and making conscious choices. Living as the question means using questions to bypass the limited answers our mind provides. Our mind can only define what we already know. It cannot be infinite and unlimited. Whenever we have an answer, that’s the sum total of what can show up for us. But when we live as the question, infinite possibilities are available. 

Questions open up new possibilities. Being the question generates an incredible powerful attracting energy to bring you the people, circumstances, and opportunity you desire in life. When you live as the question, you create an invitation.

When you are living as the question and being the question, then there is no conclusion possible . . . . .. infinite possibilities are available. A question allows you to expand your zone of awareness and see beyond conventional concepts. When you live as the question you can’t ever make a conclusion. 

You've got to be willing to be everything

Do you want to live like other people or do you wish to lead a life without limitation? If you desire to lead a life without limitation, you have to make a commitment to living a life without limitation!

"If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, go out and sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures. Sweep streets like Handel and Beethoven composed music. Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

No one and nothing is more valuable than your consciousness and your choice

Kenyan Julius Yego secured a gold medal at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing in javelin. His throw of 92.72m won the competition by four meters, and was not far away from the current world record of 98.48m. What is remarkable is that Yego is almost entirely self-taught. He developed his capacity to throw javelin and for receiving everything that is possible from 'YouTube' videos. “I watched YouTube and it really paid off for me, to see the training techniques and skills they are using,” Yego told CNN. “I do not have a coach, my inspiration comes from within.” 

Everybody in Kenya is a runner,  which means that there aren’t that many coaches who can train those who are interested in other disciplines, such as the javelin. Julius had to incorporate awareness to create something greater for himself. His desire to be the best had created inspiration, that which brought him to an awareness of what he always thought was possible. Julius made the choice to be the best and he became aware of what he could be and do different by watching the Youtube training videos.

This is how he started creating his life – the awareness of different possibilities, so that he had the perception, so that he had the receiving, so that he had the knowing, which allowed him the choices, the possibilities, and the questions that contributed to actually having the life he would like to have. 

Julius Yego demonstrated that "If we are inspired we will be able to see what others have been unwilling to receive." He truly proved that when we’re on the edge of creation with our life, then we’re never going to divorce awareness to create something. 

To develop the capacity for receiving everything that is possible for you, ask “What can I do or be today that will inspire me?” Then you can ask questions. "What would it take for me to succeed? What do I need to be aware of here? What can I change? What question can I ask that will change this? What else is possible?" 

If you start asking for, “What else is possible here?” you will have a little more awareness in the knowing, and just as much perception. You will also receive more information, which will take all of that, put it together, and make it a more substantial possibility, which gives you choice and questions to create different possibilities. 

Create your life as a present-time adventure!

Making things happen doesn’t take hard work. All it takes is choice, trust, and the ability to live on the creative edge. One way of starting to live on the creative edge is to begin to create your life as a present-time adventure instead of a future possibility. How you be in the world is what creates your reality. 

When you open up to genuine wonder, then you step out of the zone of the known and into the infinite creative possibilities of the unknown.

Love what you do - Don't settle

Your work fills a large part of your life. The only way to be truly satisfied in life is to do what you believe is great work. The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Have you ever known anyone who generated a fortune doing what they disliked, who truly enjoyed the experience? Have you ever seen exceptionally successful athletes, actors, or artists who hate what they do? There you have it—one of the secrets to becoming successful, rich, and famous.

Virtually all successful artists, celebrities, and athletes who have embodied their greatness have the absolute confidence and trust that come what may, they will one day reach the pinnacle of their professions. These people are able to perceive, know, be, and receive what they really enjoy in life. They know what they love to do. They are aware of who they are, what they are in love with, and what they wish to accomplish. This is what gives them their extraordinary positions in the world.

Break the Rules, Stand Out

Are you content to obey the rules and be in agreement with everyone else's point of view about how to create a successful business?

If you are, you are not alone. Most people have a powerful desire to fit in and a strong need to remain in good standing with the group—and they believe that they can maintain their good standing by conforming. Our entire upbringing has been about how to be in context with this reality.

Being in agreement with everyone else's point of view is the same as doing business-as-usual, following the norm, basing your decisions on past success or a fixed reference point, aligning yourself with conventional business models—all in an endeavor to achieve winning outcomes.

Unfortunately, when you seek to be in agreement with everyone else you will become the most average, the most nondescript and the most inoffensive. This doesn't lead to growth.
