“If we want to live bold, full lives, we must take our whole selves into the future.” Danielle LaPorte
As part of a leadership course I attended last fall, our teacher led us through a guided meditation where we envisioned ourselves 20 years into the future. We imagined where we lived, the objects that filled our houses, what our future self offered us for snacks, and what we looked like. We then spent some time journaling about that life, what we envisioned, and the advice that our future self had to give us.
It was a powerful experience.
Today, take some time to imagine yourself in 20 years. What life are you living? What has success come to mean to you? What advice would you give to your current self to get there?
