The feeling now becomes the future.
Find your future-freely zone. A zone where it’s okay to imagine your future without fear of judgment.
My friend who has been an entrepreneur for 18 years and I who have been an entrepreneur for 16 years were sitting in a riverside restaurant talking about what kind of business we want to start in the near future.
My friend: I’m suddenly interested in doing a business that I’ve always hated.
Me: I want to do something completely different, not just an extension of what I’ve done before.
My friend: I don’t want to be in the forefront, I want to be behind the scenes.
Me: I want to do something as a corporation.
It was funny because it’s very different from what we were talking about in the first five years of our businesses. The future we want to create is not an extension of the past, it’s like we want to do something completely new. It’s like starting a business all over again. Maybe it’s not difficult to start, because we’ve experienced it before. I feel like I can do anything, I feel there are infinite possibilities in my mind.
Also, I have respect and admiration for people living their mission like I felt about Lady Fuziko at the recent concert. And My mother was awarded a national medal this spring for her public service of over 20 years. Somehow I thought an image of my future had appeared before me. It’s a sign from the universe.
I feel that I am being shown different futures at milestones in my life. And they all have one thing in common which is continuation. So I want to taste that unknown feeling that can only be reached by continuing as they have done. The feeling that I am experiencing now with my friend is also the result of 16 years of continuous work.
With my friend as a mirror, I was able to express in words what I have been feeling lately but had not been able to express in words. A delicious pasta dish served on the terrace with a pleasant spring sea breeze. I’m sure the future will be pleasant and delicious too. Because what I feel now will be what I feel in the future. Because I had always felt such a positive feeling when charting the future.
