In coaching people going through change, I am often struck by their discouragement, frustration, and resentment. I have come to recognize, however, that those feelings reveal that the person is looking backward—at something that has already occurred. As soon as we are able to create a clear plan for the future, those feelings dissipate and are replaced by hope, optimism, and enthusiasm. In all my years of coaching, I have never seen a person who has a clear plan and goals for the future who is also depressed. They just don’t go together.
I don’t even dream anymore.It’s a common feeling, but remember, dreams can change and evolve. Don’t give up on the power of dreaming!
How can I make plans for the future if I am depressed?Making plans when you’re feeling down or depressed can be tough. But it’s important to push through and take small steps towards your goals. Trust me, it will make a difference! Remember, you’re not alone in this journey. Negative feelings like discouragement, frustration, and guilt often come from looking backward. Focus on creating a clear plan for the future, and watch those negative feelings fade away!
Will I come into money in the Future?Coming into money in the future can be exciting, but don’t let it be the only reason for your happiness. Focus on creating a fulfilling life, regardless of financial circumstances.
