Draw your ideal future1

If you want to create changes in your life, I strongly suggest that you watch this TEDxTalk: Draw your future: Patti Dobrowolski

The talk is both entertaining and inspiring. It shows you how to leverage your power of imagination and visualisation to actualise the desired vision of your future. I've used this exercise personally, and with many clients, with remarkable results. 

In fact, I did one for myself many years ago and it's all coming true, without me realising it. I found it again on the day I moved home and saw that amongst the pictures on the 'desired new reality' were 2 detached houses side by side - one really small and one a lot bigger. Then realised that this is what we were moving to. At the time, I recall it representing a separate space to work away from home, but now see that this is my little office in the garden of my new home. Spooky eh?!

One thing worth mentioning though is that when clients I've worked with watch it and draw their own, they often use Patti's words for their bold steps (see it, believe it, act on it). I've no idea why she did it like that because part of the power of the process is to see what words intuitively spring to mind. These should be your steps to get to the desired reality. It's confusing as her words aren't bold steps. 

The act of focusing on what is truly and profoundly important to you, and identifying your bold steps, has a powerful impact. Clearly, you have to take action too. But change always starts with clear, sharp, focus on what you want.
