Create The Future Today

What’s the fastest way to change the future?

Create it.

And there’s no better way to create the future than to set a date with destiny.


Create a compelling goal that pulls you into the future.

That signals a GREENLIGHT to your brain.

In 1961 when President John F. Kennedy set the goal of "landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth by the end of the decade."

That goal changed humanity’s future.

JFK knew achieving it was not going to be a cake walk.

As he said:

“We choose to go to the moon and do these things … ...not because they are easy, but because they are hard because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win."

Imagine if you moved through the world with that kind of direction and purpose in your life?

JFK realised the American people needed a big audacious goal to inspire the nation.

He knew that despite all of humanity’s collective progress – so much more is possible.

That lead to one of the most famous and best speeches in history that changed the future.

Take a step back to think for a moment.

What’s a goal you have been putting off that would inspire you?

…that you know would be challenging but, if you achieved this year would really make a DENT in your world.

Take a moment to let that thought flash up in your mind.

Would you like to give it a greenlight?

Take the first step.

Write it down today.

Don’t worry how you will achieve it for now.

The answer to ‘how?’ comes later.

NASA didn’t even know all the problems they’d face in 1961.

No mind how to solve them.

Yet they accomplished an amazing goal that still inspires.

Inside each of us are the seeds of great goals and even greater accomplishments.

Start today by listening to that inner voice that has bigger dreams and aspirations for you.

Write your initial ideas down.

Let JFK’s bold vision inspire you to reach beyond the horizon.
