Are You Forward-Looking or Backward Looking?


Tom Corley boats - cropSuccessful, wealthy people visualize future successes, who they want to be and what they want to do and have. They focus on achieving their goals and realizing their life dreams.

Their visualizations are always positive, upbeat and focused on changing their circumstances and creating a future, ideal life.

They seek solutions.

You could summarize the Rich Visualization as Forward-Looking.

Those who do not succeed in life and struggle financially always dwell on their past mistakes, past failures, relationships gone bad, money lost, etc.

They are filled with regret. They focus on their problems, rather than focusing on solutions to their problems.

Their visualizations are always negative and downbeat and anchored in the past.

You could summarize this Poor Visualization as Backward-Looking.

You become what you focus on.

If your focus is Forward-Looking, you take action on goals and dreams which transform your life in a positive way.

If your focus is Backward-Looking, you become stuck – unable to find solutions to your current problems.
