Where Will You Be Five Years From Today? 01/27/2011
“You don’t have to take your life the way it comes to you. You can design your life to come to you the way you want it to.” –Dan Zadra
You know those books that really shake you to the core? I started reading one this morning. It’s called “Where will you be five years from today?”
“Live your live on purpose.”
Did that send chills up your spine? It did mine. In the book, Dan lists things that people did within five years that we consider to be incredible. It really makes you think, if Michelangelo can paint the Sistine Chapel in just under five years, what can I do in five years if I get really clear about my desires?
Allow yourself to be guided by your highest values. First I need to ask myself,
what are my core values?
I did an exercise when I first began my certification with Frame of Mind Coaching that had us narrow down our top ten values out of 50 or something like that. I don’t think I ever completed the exercise. I got down to the top ten, but I couldn’t put them in order – I couldn’t choose what was more important.
So I tried again.
Even listing those five were difficult for me. But looking back at what I chose, taking a deep breath
– it feels right for me.
In ROOTED an eCourse, we do a values exercise similar to the one that I did during my coaches training. I think getting clear about your values is crucial to creating a solid foundation of the life you are creating. Join us in the course to find out more.
What are your top five valued values?
