How to know what the future has in store and take action

30 April, 2019

When it comes to the future, we can all be a little guilty of living in the here and now and not taking much notice of it. Aside from the usual next vacation trip and celebration milestones. So how do we start to think about the future without it affecting how we live our lives today? The truth is, there are things that you can do, actions that you can put in place and thoughts you can have now that will have a real impact on your future, without it taking away your zest for the present day. Here are some of the things that you can do.

Make some goals for the future


One of the first things you can do is spend some time thinking about what it is you want from the future? This might be simple things such as owning your own home, getting married or meeting someone or even starting a family. But it can also be specific things such as reaching a certain job role in your career or going to a place that is on your bucket list. This can be a great thing to do, as it gets you excited for what the future has in store, but it also gives you the incentive to make some changes for today. More on that later. Living in the present moment is important. I agree. But there is no harm in saving for meeting a larger goal or expectation in the future. Being proactive and taking necessary steps for safeguarding your future or for achieving a milestone is what we should live for.

How to know what the future has in store and take action. This article will help you out in knowing how you can take actions today to be able to face any challenge in the future.

Have a bucket list


A bucket list is something we have loosely mentioned, and you may already have made a mental note of the things that you want to do, but have you been specific? A bucket list is essentially all of the destinations you will want to see and all of the experiences that you want to have in your lifetime. It could be a small thing or something life changing. But it is yours and unique to you. Take some time to write these things down and record them. Remind yourself of what it is you want to achieve and do, and let it be a constant source of inspiration and motivation to help you get there.

Be an adult and put certain things in place


Sometimes we have to be an adult or do adult things that we think we are not ready for, but as we do get older, it will be things that need to be put in place. It might be time to start thinking about whole life insurance quotes which is especially important if you have a house or property or have plans to do that in the near future. You might also want to think about things like regular savings, or even writing a will to help put your mind at rest that you have taken sensible action for the future. I have met people who are really shy about discussing their future plans, especially about their insurances even with their immediate family members. As much as this is dreadful, it is important to educate our family members about the insurances and will. This will only aid them in life-changing events and will make sure that they are not left high and dry.

Taking actionable steps


Finally, it might be time to take some actionable steps to help you achieve your future goals. This might include studying for a better job or that promotion that you want. It might be saving so that you can get on the property ladder or even taking that plunge to leave the family home. These things are all actionable steps that you can do daily to help you achieve what it is you want from the future.

Let’s hope this has inspired you to take some time to think about your future. Do let me know what all the things will you do to be able to face any challenge in the future.  You can also tell us ways to make our future more secure in the comments section below. You cannot forecast your future but you can surely be prepared to face what life brings to you with a smile.

Until next time,

    I have been wanting to make a bucket list. And yeah, sometimes being an adult is tough but getting insurance is important. Not fun, not necessary.

    Planning for the future is quite a step to take. I have to admit I find it hard, thinking about what is to come.

    Having goals is a clear indication of what one wants in life. The next thing is to start taking actionable goals towards the same. I also have a bucket list and hope to be ticking off some places already

    These are all great tips! I do believe that the hardest is always to actually take action and that it is those actions that determine our future

    Good one. I agree that it's important to actually take some actionable steps that will help us closer to whatever our goals are. A goal without a plan (and action) is just a dream. ~ Ola @ WanderWithOla

    Goal setting is the key. It's like that saying: If we fail to plan, we plan to fail. Without goals, it's hard to get anywhere.

    I think having targets and making a bucket list are a great way to have some idea of your own plans for the future, sort of controlling your own destiny as much as possible.

    I would also add, avoid complaining on things that we don't have and be always grateful. If we always be grateful, the nature point us to the right direction of our future.
