According to Dr. Moses that one thing is for sure. The past is dead and gone. We can't go back there. The future is the only thing we have control over. Right here and right now is the only time we have that control. Don't put it off till tomorrow, start right now to create the life you want in your mind and don't forget to write it down. Think about it every day and every waking hour until it becomes a part of you.

Why should you bother? Because, as Earl Nightingale put it, “everyday we put in place actions and ideas that will determine the shape and substance of our lives.” Build your life with the care and effort it deserves. Don't live your life with no direction and no hope. You can create that perfect life. You can dream big, and your dreams can come true.

Writing this mental picture of who you want to be is important because writing things down gives power and permanence to your thoughts. You can refer to what you've written and modify it until you have perfected the vision. Writing it down will also help you when it comes to remembering the vision for your life. As you read it every day it will become imprinted on your mind until you will be able to think and say it without referring to the written version.

Then and only then will it become a part of you. This vision will completely take over your mind. Once that happens, you'll find ways to achieve what you've thought and your environment will be forced to align itself with this new found vision.

You will realise that there is nothing so bad you cannot use it for some good and that there is no situation that is totally hopeless.  As Dr. Moses say “I have had many times when I have ...
