Take a moment to imagine yourself five years from now. Where do you see yourself? What does your life look like? Is anything different, or is it more of the same? What kind of pictures wander through your mind as you project yourself into the future? What stories do you tell yourself about the future you?
Many people never take the the time to plan their days let alone their lives. They tend to drift along taking life as it comes until something or someone prompts them to think a little further ahead. The only thing about the future that you can know for sure, is that it is derived from what you dream, hope, and imagine.
The future comes to us in the images we create in our minds, or the ones we create from the conversations we have. This is why setting goals is so important. In fact, most progressive workplaces have incorporated this type of process in their performance evaluation cycle.
When you set concrete goals for yourself, create an action plan and discuss them with your manager, supervisor, partner, life coach, parents or mentor, you are consciously co-creating your own future.
These images you hold about the future guide and inspire you. They shape the choices you makes and the actions you commit to. Just like a flower grows toward the sunlight, people grow and change in the direction of their brightest light. A light that is reflected by the images they hold about their future self.
The power to create the future you desire comes from within. When you access this infinite power, you can truly create anything you want!
