good things : shaping the future

Right now I’m reading the One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker. I love it. And I especially love what I read this morning. Take it to heart, friends:

“You have the ability to paint a picture of what your life is going to look like. You may not get all the details exactly right, but you certainly have a part in shaping your future. Your perspective today has a lot to do with what happens tomorrow. What you believe and what you expect have a tendency to come about.

This is why it is so important to be careful how you speak to yourself, think of yourself, conduct yourself, and develop yourself. The landscape of your future is in large part determined by what you think it will be and by how you see yourself in it.

With God’s help – His power, encouragement, and energy flowing through our lives along with the fits abilities and talents He has given us – we can shape the future. Because He created us, we have the potential of living lives of significance, possibility, and impact.”
