Future Next

By Rajgopal Nidamboor


Let’s move on from where we left with ‘The Future is Now’ (February 28, 2021).

It's time we thought of the future as an enduring mission: one that helps us to sustain success and also understand the fact that, despite difficulties, our life has a definitive significance and reason too. This navigating through the wobbly waters, or climbing our mental and physical peaks, or crossing the fiddly valleys, connects us with the self at a deeper level.

These are the molecules of emotion of our inner soul — they provide you and me the power to bring about palpable change, not overnight, but over a period of time. Microsoft wasn’t built in a day; nor was Infosys. It takes time and patience to turn things around — more so, because purposeful aspirations for the future grant us the inherent capacity and innate courage to work hard, knowing fully well that our tiny steps and small, consistent efforts will lead to accrued benefits and achievement.

Have we all not seen how our dreams for a great future come true against all probability and in the face of tremendous odds? You may call this miraculous optimism. This is what that distinguishes extraordinary anticipation from mundane forms of expectation. It holds the key to the future — for a life-changing event to happen and for emotional investments to reach fruition.

Miracles happen everywhere — right from your home and the workplace to the inner precincts of a hospital. They encompass astonishing turnarounds — from the depths of despair to joy, and from the depths of life-threatening illnesses to astounding recoveries.

Call them the triumphs of the human spirit, or what you may, the fact is — if you have a ken for the future, no force can take it away from you.
