Thomas Frey: Last night I had a most unusual chance meeting. I attended the Bold & the Bankrolled at the Brown Palace in Denver, a super-networking event produced by Candy Campbell and her team at Colorado Company Magazine, and was introduced to Ti Caine, a practitioner of the future arts from Sherman Oaks, California.

Ti introduced himself as a life coach and hypnotherapist specializing in improving people’s relationship with their future. Okay, so I had to think about that one for a while.

As we continued our conversation he talked about the words that changed his life – “The future creates the present”. Again, I had to pause and consider these words.

Most people have a fatalistic view of their future. The image they hold of where they will be and what they will be doing five years in the future is a constant driver in their life, even if they are not conscious of this image. Often this vision is framed by the life of their parents, maintaining a “good enough” attitude towards the things they need to accomplish. It becomes its own self-fulfilling prophecy.

However, the person that holds an exceedingly challenging vision of their future, challenging themselves to do more and accomplish more, is most likely to do exactly that. Again, it becomes its own self-fulfilling prophecy.
