Most of us want to be successful in life. But what does success mean to you?
I've got a little but incredibly powerful exercise I want you to try, some of you won't try this, that's fine, maybe you're not ready for that big change yet but if you want more out of life then do this.All you need is a couple of sheets of paper, a pen and 20 minutes.
Sorted? Right here it is
I want you to write down how you want your life to look a year from now. Consider these 4 areas,
Lifestyle (what do you want your day to day life to look like?)
Impact (what impact do you want to be making?)
Finances (how healthy does your bank account look?)
Emotions (how are you feeling?)
This can be in a list, paragraph, mind map, whatever you want just get it down there on that paper.
Got it? OK good
Now do it again! No, really. I'm willing to bet that first one doesn't excite you, it's just slightly preferable to what you have now.
So do it again but this time it needs to excite you and scare you a little. It needs to make you think 'how the hell am I going to do that?'.
Off you go, I'll wait.
Got it? Feeling scary? Feeling excited?
That's more like it. How does that maker you feel?
