The Season of Thinking Big
Reading time: 1 minute and 14 seconds
As September slides over the horizon, there are only three months remaining in the decade. It all started with a bang and fireworks at the Millennium and the time has simply flown by. The last ten years have seen huge changes in my own life – qualifying as an accountant, getting married, moving to San Francisco for 5 years, finding a new career as a coach, starting my own practice. It’s only when we stop for a minute that we can appreciate how much has happened and how much we’ve grown.
The new decade is around the corner and it brings a sense of promise and excitement. This is the ideal time to start thinking big! I’ve started to think about my potential for the next 10 years. There are so many possibilities; starting a family, growing a great business, developing my skills and experience as a coach, seeing more of the world. I’m going to think really big about what can be achieved and start with the premise that everything is possible. Once the challenge and the vision are set for the next ten years, there’ll be no choice for me but to go for it.
The next three months are a great opportunity for you to take stock of where you are in your life. Take the time to review the last 10 years and celebrate your greatest achievements, relive your biggest challenges and think about what you have learned. You might be surprised about how much you’ve achieved personally and professionally.
This is also a chance to think big about your future. Take some time to answer the following questions. Most importantly answer them without limiting yourself about what is possible – give yourself a fair chance to be amazing. Don’t curb your ambitions or put a limit on your dreams.
- What is your vision for life in ten years time (if you think big)?
- What would you like to have achieved personally and professionally (if you think bigger)?
- What are the three amazing things that you would like to accomplish over the next decade (if you think really big)?
Answering these questions should make you feel excited and a little daunted about the challenges that lie ahead. If you feel comfortable, why not share your commitments by making a comment on this posting. Sharing your vision with the Less Ordinary Community is the first step to achieving it.
