We have options in our lives as it relates to our vision for the future. What does this look like for you?
I want to invite you to join me in an exercise today:
Sit back and imagine one day in your life. I don’t know how much time has passed until this day comes. The day you’re to think of is one that to this point you've only dreamed of. Maybe you are already living your dream and if that’s the case then this might not be for you. For the majority of us however, there are things and ways of being that we seek.
The purpose of this exercise is to begin getting clear on what that looks like in your life. Where are you? What are you doing? Who are you with?
Let’s take this one step further now:
You've got a broad view of your ultimate future. Now, what does your life look like three months from now? Is what you've done between now and then getting you closer or further away from your dream day? What can you do today that will begin moving you in the direction of your dreams?
Your reality first comes to form in your mind. Regardless of your circumstances, you have the ability to choose your attitude and begin to shape your future today. If you let what life has “thrown” at you stop you from pursuing your dreams, you’ll never achieve them. If you begin to take action towards the picture you've painted of the days of your dreams, one day you may find yourself living in them.
I challenge you to dream big and get clear on your vision for the future. What you see is likely what you’ll get.
