#32. Destination Post Card
Have you ever tried to solve a 1000 piece puzzle without a picture for reference? Pretty difficult! When we have a picture of exactly where we want to end up, we make the task of getting there that much easier.
The destination postcard is a practice to create a picture portraying the person we want to live into 1 year from today. Think about it: if you had no chance at failure, what all would you accomplish in this next year?
Close your eyes and imagine the person you want to be 1 year from now. Who are you with? What have you learned? What new things have you tried? What new places have you visited? What are you wearing? What emotions are you feeling? Imagine all that you have accomplished, and how these accomplishments make you feel.
Write out a post card to yourself, dated one year from today. Describe how you feel one year later as a result of all of your successes. Describe all of the things you are about to accomplish during this next year. Describe the changes you have made in your career, in your relationships, and in your personal life.
When we imagine the possibilities before us we open ourselves up to the world of possibility. The clearer we can picture what it is we want to accomplish, the more this picture will pull at the strings of our heart each day to help us live into our desired future.
Take 10 minutes today to create your destination postcard. Then, place this postcard somewhere you will see it every day: in your wallet, on your bathroom mirror, on the dashboard of your car, etc.
When we have a clear picture of who we want to be, it becomes easier each day to make the necessary choices to live into this person.
