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!
