Can You Absolutely Entrust a Bright Future to Your Present?

There’s a former Pop hit song the lyrics of which capture the essence of the message in this post.

Now, I’m not talking about a hit song within the last decade.  How about, roughly, a half century ago?  Yet, its message is as contemporary as the 21st century.

It was a lovely, little ditty sung by the late, great Dean Martin.  It was…Memories Are Made of This.

I’ll let you guess the repetitive lyrical phrase in the song.

There’s a direct connection between the key message in that song and your future.

The challenge you have is your future will only be as bright as you make the present.

The reality is your present becomes the past and your future becomes the result.  In other words, you carry the memories from your present into the future.

Will it be a bright future because you made your present the best it could be?

The good news is you control much of the results you get from your present.  You absolutely control the choices you make which lead you to the circumstances you live with in the future.

So, then, how can you be confident in entrusting your future to your present?

Well, what follows is not only my personal thinking regarding the answer to that question.  Why?  Because as I pondered how I could help you with that answer, I knew I had the responsibility to give you the best answer I could!

In other words, I did not want to entrust your bright future solely to my view on things.

As a result the rest of this article serves you as curation of some of the best ideas I have found regarding making the most of your present—since its result will be your future.  My view on things follows the summary of each article.

Your bright future is (in part) built on the great moments from those who have gone before you.

From time to time, we all find ourselves in situations that can be crossroads moments in our lives.  We better understand how to make great choices in those moments.
