"And, when you want something, all the Universe conspires to help you achieve it." Paulo Coelho's THE ALCHEMIST is a veritable fountain of meaningful quotes. But the one above is my favorite. Because it's totally true. Even psychology studies suggest that when we visualize what we want, things seem to magically fall into place. Except, it's not magic. It's a body moving forward. An implied inertia inevitably follows.
The best part of imagining the yet unwritten future is believing that you still have a chance to make happen what has perhaps eluded you in the past. Today, I walked around all day doing just that, and my smile couldn't have been any bigger. My sense of joy, larger than I've felt in years. The bottom line: It's never too late to accomplish your dreams. As long as you survive your humanity, you will see a day when the thing you want most will finally find you. And when it does, don't hesitate.
We often feel unworthy of the wonders the world sends our way, putting up roadblocks to sabotage our potential happiness. Because eventually, the future becomes the now. And it can be a little intimidating to accept an invitation outside of your comfort zone. But Coelho has an answer for this, too:
"Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure."
Your future gains are guaranteed if you follow your heart. Maybe your treasure is love, or having a child, or getting that dream job...or all three! Whatever it might be, go for it. Life is about living. If you wait for everything to be perfect, you're just waiting to die. But death finds you soon enough. The whole point of life, however, is living.
So what are you waiting for??? Go get it!
The future is now....
