Future self work is my jam. It’s my go-to for myself when I’m working through hard shit and it’s where I start each of my clients by creating a super detailed vision of their wisest, coolest, badassest 80-yo selves.
Why? Because it helps us make better choices and take action NOW instead of wallowing around in indecision, overwhelm, perfectionism, and yes – people-pleasing.
Future self work helps us set boundaries, go after the “more” we
wantneed in our life (more joy, contentment, satisfaction, fulfillment, impact, etc.), and put our needs first sometimes so that we can be our best selves for ourselves and others.
✨ What is she doing?
👵🏼 Who is she doing it with?
✨ Where does she live?
👵🏼 What is her home life?
✨ What makes her laugh like a little schoolgirl?
👵🏼 What gives her holy rage?
✨ How does she feel physically?
Breathe life into this version of future you. Make it such that she is NOT messing around when it comes to her happiness, fulfillment, and deep contentment.
You can become that amazing woman you met in your vision. In fact, you are becoming her. ~ Tara Mohr
If you want to turn this vision into your wisest mentor, you need to spend time creating a loving, kind, respectful relationship with her.
Keep her in mind as you go about your day-to-day activities.
Make it a habit to check in with her daily and ask, “Hey – how we doing today? Anything I need to course-correct or adjust or we good?!?”.
Being in relationship with her and taking action NOW is what’s going to bring the vision of her closer and closer to your current life so BOTH of you are in a win/win situation.
Yup – they exist. No – you cannot predict the future and shitty things WILL happen because that’s life.
So knowing you can’t control the future…what you CAN control is the intention and feeling you have inside as you go about your day-to-day life.
Choose to live from a place of hope and possiblity and knowing you’ll have your back always, especially when the shitty things happen because again – they will happen.
Make the choices that are within your control and do your damnedest to love the everliving hell out of yourself and your life.
