Opening an open door

There is an expression that I always like to use in situations in which I feel is appropriate. This expression is so important that it defines the very meaning of why we live and why we die.

We define our lives by the actions that we embark on during our journey through this world and this life. In this very moment we are reacting these situations and we are responding according, and in many cases, geared tours these situations. Why? Why do we live to do the next and the next and yet the next? Don’t we have control of the outcome or the results that we are trying to achieve?

In some way we can say that we have full control of what we do and what we say, and there are situations in which we just react. Which one do we respond on? Or which one do we let go as is?Those reactions is what defines what we do, because we can say that we really do not have control of what happens next. We can guide our life in one path and we can adjust our path and educate ourselves to be prepared for what comes next. But, what happens when the situation changes and we find our selves making another decision and reacting to the new situation. Can we then realize that we are not in control. Or do we accept it as “bump” in the road or a “side step” of life.

The expression is what carries our mind to look for the next outcome, even if the most recent one was not achieved to specifications. We make the leap to the next situation knowing that what we have left behind is what has been set and done, without thinking that what we have been through is a defining moment in our life.

What really is a defining moment in our life? What is the engine that drives us to define our lives? How can we change it? Well, the answer is the expression that I have been able to use for every single moment since I learned how to use it.

With that expression I can define what I have done, what I will do and what I will leave behind. I speak to others using this expression as a guide, because what I say and do will define what will happen to me and which direction I will be heading, and most importantly, what I will leave behind.

Using it has helped me create a career, be good father, and most recently trying to achieve the ultimate goal of having a family.

The expression or phrase that I like to use is:  Create Future.

With this phrase you can look back at what you have done and ask your self, did you create future? You can eat a sandwich and drink a glass of water and ask your self, did you create future? Look within your life and with in the things that make you happy at the moment and ask your self, did you create future?

The ultimate goal for all of us in this world is to create future, and if you understand the meaning of this phrase you will never wake up again without asking yourself, did you create future?

Building a block in your life has never been easy, but when you do make the next one, always think that the people around you are either creating future or creating a past.

Great people in this world are not known for creating the most wonderful history, they are great because during their journey they created a wonderful future either with their family, their friends, their partner, or the world.

I don’t know about you, but I just created future!
