Daily Visualization Question

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Daily Visualization

Let's start with a quick visualization exercise. Imagine yourself as an elderly person reflecting on what you've done with your life. Think of the path you're on now. Are you making your future self proud? What can you do today to help live a life you can be proud of?

**This one stings a bit and will be hard.

I will contemplate this today and mostly focus on the POSITIVE things I am doing with my life.

But, there are a few negative steps I am taking that may prevent me from becoming an elderly person and that I am definitely NOT proud of.

Q: How am I making my future self proud?

Q. What can I do BETTER today to help live a life I can be proud of?

    Netty, great questions! I do think it's important to try to always do our best, but it's also important to realize that some days are going to be "off" and in that case, the goal may be to "first do no harm". I often hear advice on Spark for when people take vacations - don't worry about losing weight, just try to maintain. Sometimes in life, all we can do is tread water, and that's OK too!
