If you close your eyes and envision the person you want to be, who do you see? Don’t say Jennifer Lawrence or Denzel Washington! I’m talking about envisioning how the very best version of YOU would act…how you would speak, how you would think, and even how you would dress.
Marie Forleo, named by Oprah as a thought leader for the next generation and host of the award-winning online show MarieTV, asks the question, “How would you behave if you knew you were the best in the world at what you do?
- What would you eat?
- How would you exercise?
- How would you treat your partner, kids, and others?
- What would you spend your time thinking about?
- What projects would you be working on?
- How would you invest your money?
- What events would you attend?
- Who would you connect with?
- How would you dress?
What is preventing you from behaving like this now?
(If your answer is either time or money, you’re not being creative.)
Maybe your goal isn’t to be the best ________________ (fill in the blank) in the world. Maybe you just want to be a better Mom, partner, friend, employee, or business owner. If you have that better person in mind, how would they behave?
Nothing is holding you back from starting to be that person today.
