On January 8, 2011 I posted the below video. I titled it “5 Years From Now”. I stumbled across it last night 5 years later and while watching it I felt a mixture of emotions. I talk about what I think my life would be like at 51 … which is the age I am now.
Five years ago I didn’t have a clear plan as to where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. I say in the video that I can’t say what I will be doing exactly. One thing I do mention in the video is that I see myself “smiling a lot and happy” and I believe that is the case but there should have been more.
I’m on a path right now and I trust the path but I believe if I would have done a few things differently back then I might be further along on this path.
I cringe a little while watching this video because I sound like … I don’t know … like I’m expecting things to just fall into place without any effort on my part. I know now that I have got to take an active role in my life if the things I want to happen will ever happen. I’m not saying that it is ALL up to me. What I’m saying is that I have a role to play and I don’t think over the past 5 years I’ve been playing it.
No regrets. When you know better you do better.
So, where will I be in 5 years?
I will be operating a successful health coaching business and I will make a comfortable living through one-on-one coaching, online courses, book sales and speaking engagements.
I will help 1 million women to live healthier lives.
