The road to your life’s aspirations is non-linear and filled with loops, zigzags and pot holes.  You can sustain your effort toward the changes you seek in your life with a vivid image of your desired future, clarity of your values, and a strong sense of hope and optimism that you will get to where you want to go.  Imagine 10 years from now and your life is ideal, what would you be doing?   To help you gain more clarity around this vision and to tap into your past, give some thought to these questions and share your insights with a friend:

Name five people who helped you be the person you are today?  For each person, what moment do you remember?   What did he or she say or do?  How did it make you feel?  What did you learn or take away from the moment?   How can this help you achieve your vision of the future?

Enjoy the journey.
