What Do You See in the Mirror?

The mirror tells all.

If you’re able to pay your bills and save money, the refection is of someone living below their means and building their future wealth.

If you’re eating nutritious food and exercising consistently, the reflection is of someone who is fit and healthy.

If you’re pursuing your dreams and your goals, the reflection is of someone who loves what they do for a living.

It’s hard to look in the mirror, however, when you know you are not doing the things you should be doing.

If you’re overweight, the reflection is of someone eating too much and exercising too little.

If you’re struggling financially, the reflection is of someone spending too much and saving too little.

If you hate your job, the reflection is of someone who has put their ladder on someone else’s wall, and who is still climbing the wrong wall.

If your reflection in the mirror is a negative one, I want you to indulge me.

Imagine for a moment that you are a writer who has been tasked to write a chapter about the ideal you, ten years into the future. What would the chapter say?

Hopefully, it would paint a picture with words of your amazing future life. It would include information about how fit and healthy you were. It would, in detail, describe your amazing home, the fascinating places you’ve traveled to over the past ten years, the fun and exciting things you’ve done on your many vacations, the passion you have for what you do for a living that has helped you create your enormous wealth. It would share details about a life, dreams are made of.

The purpose of this exercise is to create a blueprint of the life you were intended to live. It will help provide clarity in the form of a future desired destination. This blueprint will become your GPS, directing you to forge good habits and make better decisions, forever changing the trajectory of your life.

With this clear vision of the life you desire, your blueprint will change the reflection you see, the next time you look in the mirror.
