Do you ever feel stuck? Like you’re treading water in the sea of life, not quite moving backwards, but definitely not making any progress? If you’re nodding your head right now, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Imagine this scenario: you're seated across a table from... well, yourself. But not the you that you are today, instead it's the you from the future. Kind of scary, isn’t it? But let's sideline that fear and concentrate on what this future version of you looks like - their attire, attitude, ,skills, body language, and mannerisms. This is who you're aiming to become.

So, what's the next step after visualizing your future self? You initiate a conversation and ask for guidance. What you hear might be hard to digest, like reducing how many hours you work weekly, or ending a friendship that doesn't serve you, but remember, the advice comes from a place of love and care for you.

This process is essentially an exercise in self-discovery. It's about getting to know your best self and then striving to become that person. We play different roles in different aspects of our lives. The person you are with your friends differs from the one you are with your family or at work. But who is your best self, and how can you embrace that identity fully?

The answer lies in the questions we ask ourselves.
For instance:

  1. What would your best self do in your current situation?
  2. How would they react to the challenges you're facing?
  3. What would they stop doing so that they can focus on what's important?

The answers to these questions might surprise you and can provide valuable insights into the changes you need to make.

So, dear readers, it's time to stop feeling stuck. Start envisioning your future self, take their advice, and step up your game. You've got this! And if you need a hand, you know I'd love to support.
