How to see into the future…

You’ve probably seen this quote being circulated on social media a LOT:

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

It’s one of those Steve Jobs-ian type quote cards that people share, presumably to inspire you to become some sort of visionary.

Aspiring to be a visionary feels like a lot of pressure to me, which is probably why that quote never really resonated with me. 

But then I saw the correct Abraham Lincoln quote this week, which reads:

“The best way to predict YOUR future is to create it.” 

So, now I get it. Being a visionary for the whole world feels daunting. Being a visionary for my life feels like something I can do. 

Intention is powerful. Having an intention for a project, a season, a trip or a relationship is powerful. Intention setting really can create your future. 

Here’s to creating the future!
