If you frame your desired outcome in the future it will remain elusive, which is why you mentally see whatever you want to create as already having taken place.
From this morning's Abraham-Hicks daily inspiration.
"New desire is what summons the Source and carries what is now into the future experience. But the thing that's tricky about the future experience is that the future never gets here, because the moment that it approaches-it becomes now. Tomorrow never comes because when it gets here, it's today.
