A beautiful future

Everything you know about yourself and your world is based on what has happened in the past. Though that is useful knowledge, don’t let it limit you.

People change, circumstances change, and new possibilities are born with each dawning day. What you do with the future does not have to be restrained by what you’ve done in the past.

If you’ve been disappointed or uninspired, dismayed or lacking in energy, that can stop right now. If it seems you’ve been having a bad month, a bad year or a bad decade, let yourself know that your fortunes are about to change.

Look forward with a positive perspective and act accordingly. Respect and treasure your past, while living in the present to create a fulfilling future.

Make good use of what you know, while keeping in mind that there’s always a whole lot more to learn and to experience. Dare to dream of the best world you can imagine, and know the joy of doing all you can to make it happen.

This is a new moment, so take full advantage of its freshness. Go forward with the best of intentions, the highest integrity, energy and enthusiasm, and make the future a beautiful thing.
