These Core Influences Determine Your Future

Do you ever sit and wonder what your life will look like in a year? How about 5 years? Or maybe even 20? Well what if I told you that this shouldn’t be a guessing game and you can actually get a pretty good idea of what that future will be by taking a look at everything you are doing in the NOW.

The way you are tackling your life each and every day will determine what your life will look like in months or years to come.

So if you need a kickstart into some major motivation, let this speak to you. Take a look at some of the core influences that will direct you towards your future you.

1. The content you consume:

Take a moment to understand the idea that what you allow to enter your mind, whether that be Netflix, reality TV, news, music, podcasts, social media etc. is what shapes your inner reality. What this means is that every piece of content you consume some how molds the way you see the possibilities in the world as well as your mindset towards your life, your goals, and your ambitions. While entertainment is essential in our lives and is perfectly fine in moderation, we should be keeping close tabs on what we allow to consume excess hours in our lives. Take a second to take inventory on the content you are consuming in a day. Does it motivate you? Does it make you want to be a better version of yourself? Does it push you towards achievement of your desired goals? Does it educate you and expand your mind? Or is it mind numbing and filled with negativity? Take another moment to think about what kind of mental state this content puts you in. Ask yourself, does this content push me towards my desired future me? If the answer is no, its time to reevaluate where you are spending your time. Time is our most valuable asset and spending it wisely on things that will fuel you will make or break the future you.

Here's a tip, take one piece of content you consume that does nothing for you and replace it with something that educates you, motivates you, or teaches you. Replace that hour of news with reading a book. Replace your shower tunes with a podcast. Maybe even replace that nighttime Netflix with an educational YouTube video. Start to raise your frequency by eliminating content that lowers it. Keep your brain sharp and your vibe high.

2. The food you eat:

Interested in knowing what kind of health future you will have? No need to guess! Take a look at what you consume now. Each and every day you are fueling your body down to a cellular level with specific nutrients or maybe even a lack of nutrients. What you are eating now is essential creating a roadmap for the health of your future. While this one seems to be a no brainer, a lot of people have a hard time thinking too far into the future being surrounded by sugar and processed foods. While it is important to enjoy life's pleasures it is just as important to make sure we are using our food as fuel. Fuel that is not only providing us with energy for the day but fuel that is feeding our cells, our organs, our gut bacteria for our future. If you continuously eat poorly, your body will soon lack the nutrients and energy to keep you lively and young. This will also cause imbalances in the gut that can lead to weight gain, mood issues, aging, and possibly even disease.

So here is the trick. Shift you perspective of food. Remember that food is fuel that is meant to be celebrated as it provides our body with the nutrients and vitamins it needs to survive. Think of the desired future you would like to have, regarding your health, and align the now with that vision. But remember, moderation is key. Never restrict yourself from things that make you feel good and bring you joy.

3. The people you surround yourself with:

"Surround yourself with people that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel, energies are contagious." - Rachel Wolchin

“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.” - Mark Ambrose

Do you believe this? Do you believe that the people you are surrounded by have an impact on your future? Take a moment to think about it. As humans we take on behavioral characteristics of those around us while also adopting similar mindset through engagement and conversation. Just like the content you were consuming impacts your reality, the people you are surrounded by also does the same. If you were surrounded by extremely hardworking individuals who have big dreams and believe that the sky is the limit, you would quickly adopt this mindset as well. One of the best aspects to achieving success is surrounding yourself with people who have achieved what you desired. This acts as validation that what you want is accessible and achievable. It is just as important to surround yourself with people who want similar things as you and who hold the same values, beliefs, and morals. Surrounding yourself with the proper community can be catalyst for ones change. Another important aspect of this is having relationships that feel your soul with love and care. Friends and family can be amazing sources of support. Make sure you are showing up for others just as you would desire friends and family to show up for you. Be the positive light for others, just as you are searching for the same.

4. Your ability to take action:

This one is key. Because all of this motivation means absolutely nothing without action. So take a moment to look inwards. Maybe even journal a little about your current ability to think of a desire and to take action to achieve it. If you constantly complain about something but do absolutely nothing to change, you can probably guess what your future will look like. I'll give you a little'll most likely resemble exactly the way you are currently living. Your ability to take action towards a desired result is a key influence in how your future will pan out.

Understand that you do not need to know everything to take a step in a certain direction. Action is most likely followed by failure which is then followed by a lesson and then action again. While it is important to be prepared it is just as important to take note of when you are using the lack of knowledge or skillset as an excuse to stop yourself from taking action or a form of procrastination.
