In today’s episode, take a moment and ask yourself this one simple question: How far away is your future?

ASSESS YOURSELF

How has your financial situation changed in the last 10 years?  Are you living in the future you’d hope to be living in 10 years ago or things pretty much the same as they were in the past? If things are pretty much the same, what do you feel  that you need to do to ensure that 10 years from now you’re not still living in this same “past”?

Your financial future won’t just happen. If a year from today, nothing about your financial situation has changed, you’re not really living in the “future, you’re still living  in the past.

THINK RADICALLY

One thing you can do is to take some advise from Paypal co-founder Peter Theil and start thinking radically different. The main thrust of his book “Zero to One” is that you don’t create a radically different situation by making small, cowardly, incremental changes. You make radical change with radical new thinking and  radical new action.

If your future can change over the next 12 months so that you can stop dreaming and start living the business you always wanted, then how far away is your future?

Title:How Far Away Is Your Future

Date Published: January 18, 2015

Running Time: 03:47 minutes

 

Hi this is John Millar, I’m the Naked Business Coach bringing you yet another bite size bit of business  information in stripping business back to the bare basics. Today, I want you to consider this very simple concept, and that is how far away is your future?

Now in this brilliant book “Zero to One:, a man called Peter Thiel, who is the co-founder of paypal said, “What makes the future disctinctive and important isn’t that it hasn’t happened yet, but rather that it will be a time when the world looks differently from today. In a sense, if nothing about our society changes in 100 years, then the future is over 100 years away.”

Now that’s pretty profound. And you can apply this to your own business and financial situation as well. Your financial future won’t just happen. If a year from today, nothing about your financial situation has changed, you’re not really living in the “future, you’re still living  in the past.

How has your financial situation changed in the last 10 years?  Are you living in the future you’d hope to be living in 10 years ago or things pretty much the same as they were in the past? If things are pretty much the same, what do you feel  that you need to do to ensure that 10 years from now you’re not still living in this same “past”?

One thing you can do is to take some advise from Peter Theil and start thinking radically different. The main thrust of his book is that you don’t create a radically different situation by making small, cowardly, incremental changes. You make radical change with radical new thinking and  radical new action.

If your future can change over the next 12 months so that you can stop dreaming and start living the business you always wanted, then how far away is your future? Is it less than a month away?  Is is something that you need to do or not do. Is is someone you need to bring into your life? Is it a new coach or a new mentor? Someone who can guide you, inspire you  and educate you.

This has been John  Millar and I’m the Naked Business Coach bringing you this tiny little bite size piece of wisdom I want you to take away and think about it. For things to change, first you must change. And  remember that the definition of  insanity continuing to do the same thing time and time again and expect a different result. Albert Einstein said it — clever guy! So why is it that we see Ground Hog Day time and time again and people are doing the same thing for 10 and 20 years, and  don’t have 20 years of experience, they have one year of experience replicated 20 times? Something to think about, something to avoid and something to act on.
