Your best possible future self

Your best possible future self – Dr Laura King

“Your future depends on many things, but mostly on you.” Frank Tyger

Here at Joe Bloggs I want to help you work towards a future that is on your terms. I am a Personal Development Coach after all and I aim to ‘Inspire and motivate you for positive change.’

Today, I wanted to provide you with an exercise that can get you thinking about the person you want to become. To get you thinking about “Your best possible future self.” Only by setting your focus on the person you want to become can you start working towards your best future.

This exercise was created by Dr Laura King. It is a strong exercise in self-discovery but it has also been shown to improve overall happiness and reduce goal conflict, plus a host of other benefits too. So first and foremost, for 20 minutes, without any self-editing at all, without limitation and with inhibition write the response to this

“Think about your life in the future you are 109 years old.  Imagine that everything has gone as well as it possibly could. You have worked hard and succeeded at accomplishing all of your life goals. Think of this as the realization of all of your life dreams. Now, write about what you imagined”

I mean I believe 109 years old might be slightly ambitious, but you never know. If I were to go by Laura’s estimations, I would still have 89 years left on this planet which means I am just getting started. However, I have a vision in which I want to work towards for Joe Bloggs but also for myself. I want you to do the same!

This is also a great exercise for understanding what we want now, this can ensure we are on the right path and our goals are aligned. Who do you want to be!? Write it down.

Do not hold back on this. Be ambitious.
