Think about where you want to be in 10 years, and with whom. Visualize it. This is where you will be in 10 years. Are you excited about the possibilities? How can you tweak the statement to make it more real and true to you?
The more you spend some time “checking in” with your plan, the more you will find yourself moving in the direction you developed. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” The human brain cannot hold two views of reality. Therefore, by creating your vision for the future, you create a tension between what is and what could be, and you work to achieve “what could be.”
Visualize your future for a few minutes each day – while you're driving to work, going for a walk at lunch or just before you fall asleep-- and your mind will find ways to create it. To diffuse the tension, your mind will be more cognizant of what you truly want and “magically” circumstances will form to support you in making your vision a reality. This vision that you have created is the starting point for your 10-year plan. Become very familiar with this new place, because you are on the way to achieving it! It's important to the success of your plan that you know, feel, taste, wear, and love that new place—and if you don't, then go ahead and make changes, IN WRITING.
