The Best way to predict your Future

Since post MBA entrance exams, most of IIMs and Top MBA Institutes are conducting WAT ( Written Abiity Test ) to check language skills which can't be developed overnight hence, practice matters a lot. 

Please read following topic on WAT and develop your own skills :  The Best way to predict your Future is to create it

The future is in the now, it’s here. The seed of what transpires at some given point of time in the future is really planted in what one does in the present. Though there is an element of uncertainty associated with events of the future, to a large extent, how you act in the present defines how your future shall be. Therefore, the saying ‘the best way to predict your future is to create it’ holds true.  

It is a fact that life is uncertain. Nobody can predict with surety what is going to happen few years down the line. It is also life’s unwritten principle that one is constantly engaged in securing one’s future, that all of man’s actions are geared up towards achieving something in the distant future. With this in mind, people work hard with determination in the hope that with their hard work, determination, and a bit of luck, they will be able to eliminate some of the uncertainty and, in fact, be the masters of their future. 

The first thing one needs to do to create one’s future the way one desires is to not procrastinate.   One common trait in all successful people is that they do not procrastinate. For them, each second is an opportunity waiting to be grabbed. In this highly competitive world, an opportunity lost is somebody else’s gain. 

The Indian business tycoon Ratan Tata is a fine example of a man who created a marvellous future and made the Tata Group a brand to reckon with internationally. During his 21 years at the helm of the Tata Group, revenues grew over 40 times and profit, over 50 times. Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Indra Nooyi, Oprah Winfrey and the like, are examples of people, who have held on to their dreams and charted their own path.

People who create their own futures take responsibility and hold themselves accountable for their actions. For them, failure is a stepping stone to success and provides motivation to work with extra vigour. Their persistence and commitment to their dreams is what sets them apart from ordinary people. Former US President, Abraham Lincoln, for instance, one of the most successful and popular leader responsible for playing a defining role in the abolishment of slavery in US, had to face several failures along the way. But his never gave up and learned his lessons from life to become successful.

It is important to get rid of the sloth and start right away. Laziness is the precursor to failures and disappointments. One needs to realise that one needs to be an active participant in steering one’s life in the right direction. To stay ahead of the competition, one needs to set up a plan and work diligently towards achieving it. 

The foundation of the future is laid in the present. Instead of worrying about what will happen in the future, take control of your future in your hands and make it count.
