If you’re anything like me, you love visualising your future!
Listening to visualisations to connect with your desires for the future
Building vision boards to visually represent these visualisations
Creating space for limitless thinking to expand and connect with the desires
It doesn’t mean you’re not grateful and appreciative of the here and now.
I genuinely am full of gratitude. It’s that I also LOVE creating a picture of my future, so that I can align my behaviours, actions and thoughts accordingly.
Connecting with ‘Future Me’ is key for this.
Future Me is simply me in the future. The version of me that has evolved and aged with time.
I usually focus on Future Me being 10 years older. Not too far away from my current age, and yet still a considerable time away from my reality as it is now.
I clearly define what Future Me is like in every way:
The things I think, What I say, My morning routine, How I look after and move my body, The ways I organise my energy, My family dynamics, Where I’m living, What my leisure time looks like, How I feel about life and business, My annual income, What my space looks and feels like, My success mind-set and behaviours…
Future Me is essentially my dreams and desires manifested into my future self.
By assigning these dreamy qualities to myself, it helps me to be more accountable every day. I can re-connect with Future Me throughout my day to guide me to live in alignment with my dreams and desires.
That means… doing things I’m putting off, pushing boundaries, re-programming my behaviours and beliefs, aiming to be better and better everyday.
For example, if I choose not to exercise one morning, it can feel like I’m letting ‘Future Me’ (the most active I’ve ever been in my life) down. It provides personal accountability to be better today.
Although I passionately love limitless thinking and visualisations and commit to doing this frequently, that has not always been true.
Rewind a couple of years…
I had lost track of connecting with my future in my 20’s and headed down a mediocre and complacent road. Wrapped up in the drama, stress and pressure of my job and life, I didn’t spend any time reflecting or reviewing my life. Let alone considering my future and legacy.
I was on auto-pilot. Like groundhog’s day – physically, mentally and spiritually!
But after a “mini meltdown” as I approached my 30’s, I pro-actively re-connected with my future vision for success. It wasn’t clear what it looked like at that time, but I was able to connect with the emotions, feelings and spirit of what I wanted my future to be. And that’s what I chose to step into.
My 30’s is now all about connecting with the future I want to create to be more intentional and purposeful in everything I do!
And it’s wonderfully beautiful and fulfilling.
This has impacted so many areas of my life. The way I spend my money, the way I use my energy, the people I connect with, my relationships, my home, my business and my workspace.
It’s so important for me to showcase my connection with the future in my workspace.
But I take this one step further with my own sanctuary and my client’s spaces….
Create a workspace that is designed for ‘Future You’!
I work from home and spend most days in my Work Sanctuary creating, thinking, serving and planning. I’ve created a workspace of inspiration, focus and joy that ‘Future Me’ would be incredibly proud of!
All you have to do is ask yourself…
1. How do I feel working in my current workspace?
2. When I connect with reaching my future goals, what feelings and emotions arise?
3. What is the difference between my current and future feelings?
4. What action can I take to align my feelings to match my future?
The emotions that came up for me were around self-belief, success, confidence, focus, inspiration, joyfulness.
So for me, it was creating a space that increased my focus on my goals, reflected my personality and branding, inspired my creativity, and increased the joy and happiness in my daily life.
I designed my Work Sanctuary around these factors to generate optimistic, intentional, determined and successful emotions and feelings. Which impacted my behaviours, thoughts and proactivity!
My Work Sanctuary is a place that Future Me – Badass Business Becky in 10 years time – will be so incredibly proud of as an instrumental part of my business success journey!
And you can create yours too! Connect with the future and have fun with it 🙂
