I told myself many times before, do not futurize. Do not think you can predict the future because you can not control what happens. These were insights from from a defensive position. When you go on the offensive and you want to achieve something, you WANT and HAVE to control the future. Simply because you need the right circumstances for your plan to succeed. The more you have thought about everything that could happen, based on real-life and up-to-date information, the better you could control the outcome. If you are a leader who wants to make your goals happen, you have got to decide for yourself what your future looks like. You can not allow the world to decide for you, as that makes you a follower.
