How to Focus on the Future

One of the most important things to do to create a happy and fulfilling future is to to be future focused in your thinking.  It’s really common to focus on the past – in fact, that’s what most of us do all of the time. We create the same results in our life because we continue to think and behave the way we always have.  After divorce, this often means staying stuck on an old relationship or fear of recreating it. In this episode Molly will help you understand how you may be stuck with a past focus and how you can change that.

She’ll cover:

  • The false idea that you are only capable of doing what you have in the past
  • The fear of recreating the past will actually keep you from what you really want.
  • The importance of belief and vision when you work toward a goal, rather than getting stuck in the “how.”
  • Believing that happiness is behind you is one of the most devastating beliefs you can have – and it’s not true.
  • Your challenging experiences will only increase your ability to have happiness and success in the future.

When you don’t fit in at church

The key to your experience of church is your thoughts and beliefs.  She’ll share with you the truth that no one outside of you can actually determine if you belong.  By adopting some powerful beliefs about you, your family and where you fit in you can create more connection in any situation.
