This week one of the key ideas that stood out was about my future self.
I can appreciate Mark’s passion when he explained to us how important it is to do these exercises and get familiar with our future self. If we don’t, we will treat them like a stranger and procrastinate, make excuses, and eventually quit this quest of improvement.
As I pondered this thought, the details about the study that was mentioned played back in my head. My future self is a stranger if I choose not to get to know her better, if I don’t spend time with her now she will not be what I want for her to be.
I also considered the words of scroll I, ” I will walk tall among men and they will know me not, for today I am a new man, with a new life.” I believe that in order for others to look at me and not recognize who I have become, I will have to get to know my future self now better and better, until I become her.
Wow! I have some more becoming to do. And the journey continues…
