Think of the kind of things you’ll do “when the money comes in”.
Could you do one of them right now?
Last week I made a micro-loan to an entrepreneurial goddess in Africa to buy another sewing machine
and a donation toward warm meals here in my hometown,
and recently, a bit toward a teacher for classroom art supplies …
small contributions to people I believe in.
This is the kind of thing I intend doing on a MUCH bigger scale in the future.
So, if an angel-invester-patron-of-the-arts is who I want to be,
I need to find ways to begin BEing that person now.
THIS is more than ‘acting as if’ … this is LIVING-as-if.
It’s behaving NOW as if you already are the person you dream of becoming.
Notice that word … behaving. Be+having
Behavior is the verb between BE and HAVE.
What could you do today, supernova,
that reflects what you dream of doing later?
How could you BE a person who does that?
So today, go do something your Future Self with thank you for.
Because the sooner you BE + DO ..
the sooner you will have.
