Always wondering where to focus on? we live in a world, where we have to choose between the two. Which career should I choose? Which stream to go for after my 10th or 12th? Should I take this job or not? And all this questions comes to rest, to our future, what will be the future like or will I be successful in future? we take the decision by thinking about the future.
So, where to focus on, Today or Tomorrow? Almost everyone will say, whatever we do, we do it to secure our future, so that we can cherish our life in coming years. If we think in a way, then we shall see that, it is indeed necessary to focus on future. But, sometimes, we tend to focus on today. How does this happen? Imagine as a parent, when you want to buy some kind of student kit or you have to pay fees of your child and in the same situation, you also have to lend money to someone which is due on a date and still you decide and go for your child’s education thinking about today, as you want to secure his today to build him/her for the future. In this we see, even though you want to think about the future, your decision comes to today, because when you secure your today only then your future can be secured.
This was just to focus on your financial aspect, but what about your life? We always keep on running and working hard to secure our future, because our mind just thinks about the protection of our family, securing themselves and their families future. As an individual also, we just keep on running and running and in this mean time ‘Life’, ‘Life’ gets over and then we realize, by thinking about the future every time, we forgot to live our ‘Today’. Life is a gift which should be enjoyed in every moment. Future is important, but to build your future, you have to believe in your today.
So, forget about where should I go or what to do in future, what is right or what is wrong, always remember, when you work hard today, your future will automatically get shaped. Every day there will be new levels, more challenges and we just have to wait for them as they are never going to stop. You just have to embrace your today and give a hug to your future. In this way, you shape yourself and develop your personality.
In our surrounding, everyone will ask you to focus on your tomorrow. So, after listing to this, just give a quick look around you and ask to yourself, the people who are telling you to do this, where they stand in their life ‘Today’. But remember, this you have to ask yourself, but not with an ego or attitude, you have to ask this because you want to learn something from them because, weather it is a success or failure, each one teaches us something, we should always keep this in mind that “Success makes us humble, Failure makes us a learner” and if you understand this, then, you don’t need to focus anywhere because you are already focusing on today which is making you a humble or a learner.
You create your ‘Future’ by focusing on ‘Today’, you just have to give your best today and forget about the future because result is not in your hand, what’s in your hand is today and you have to ‘create’ your ‘today’. Enjoy every moment of today and let the adventurous future come and challenge you because whatever you do, no matter how much you work hard, future will always give you a challenge and as we know now, you have to wait and give a hug to your future, then you will see how much beautiful and satisfying your future is.
To conclude the part, no matter what happens, your ‘Today’ will get reflected to your ‘Future’ and to get the clear reflection of ‘Future’ you need to clear with your ‘Today’.
