The Curtain Falls

You might have just hit a rough patch.

Or maybe those feelings of inadequacy and

self-doubt are part of a larger problem that

relates to anxiety or depression.

Whatever the reason, you might feel like

a big curtain has fallen that makes it

hard  (maybe even impossible)

to see a better future for yourself.

I Just Can’t See It

You can’t see yourself happy.

You can’t see yourself successful.

You can’t see yourself in love.

You can’t see yourself well.

You can’t see yourself free of worry,

fear, or doubt.

And seeing is believing.

You Have to See to Believe

If you can’t see it, you won’t believe

it’s possible for yourself.

If you don’t believe it’s possible,

you won’t make steps toward making

things different for yourself.

So, how do you allow yourself to see

something when you’ve lost that ability?

En-Vision: Call It Like You Want It

To allow yourself to see what is truly

possible for yourself, ask yourself:

What Would I Do IF:

l. I had all the resourcesI needed

2.I had perfect health and energy

3. I knew I could not fail

What would you be doing?

Where would you be right now?

Who would you be with?

One Last Question

Is there anything you can do today

that allows you to take even a small

step toward this possibility?

If the answer is yes…

(hint: the answer is yes!), do it.


Don’t stop to tell yourself how it’s

doomed and you’re going to fail and

it doesn’t matter anyway.

Participate in taking just one step

toward your vision.

Walk into the picture you just painted.

It’s better there.

It’s going to be better.


This week in A Year to Change,

we are working on the chapter called

Imagine the Future You!

Imagine that! So if you like all this

talk about learning how to imagine a

better, healthier future for yourself,

come and join me this year.

You’re going to love what you see!
