Welcome back! We’ve been diving pretty deep for the past couple of episodes getting real with ourselves and making some big decisions. So this time we’re going to keep it light. This week’s question is:
What do I want to be when I grow up?
This week I want you to approach the question from the perspective of your younger self. How did you see your life going? I want you to write down the details.
Did you imagine the kind of house you would live in? The city you’d live in? And don’t just focus on the kind of job you thought you’d have. Try to remember all of the details you dreamed up as a kid.
For this week’s exercise, I’d like you to grab a pen, a piece of paper and write down everything that comes to mind. And don’t stop. This week I have created a free workbook with several prompts to help you explore this question.
For me, this exercise brought back some very specific memories. When I was younger, I wanted to be a dancer. And I was for most of my teenage years. As the middle child, I loved being the center of attention! And I loved dancing.
Whenever we would have a party I would put on my dress or leotard, use the back deck as my stage, and do my dance routine for our friends and family. I loved seeing the looks on my parents’ faces lit up with so much joy. When I would look into the crowd I wouldn’t see anyone who wasn’t smiling and enjoying the show…me!
And I think that’s what lit me up the most…seeing how much fun everyone was having. Now that I am a life coach I still get to be on stage doing speaking events and this podcast.
And what lights me up now is seeing the looks on my clients’ faces when I guide them to through to a new perspective.
If this exercise is emotionally difficult for you then you might consider hiring a life coach to help you push through past issues on the way to personal freedom.
I do offer a free 30-minute clarity session. You can find out more about this opportunity here!
Next week, we will use your workbook as the launching pad for one of my most favorite exercises.
Now, go get BIG!
