It's not about telling yourself a lie. It's about starting with the end in mind. If you are not even sure what you want out of life, how are you ever going to get it?
You don't have to stand in front of a mirror or wear a cable knit sweater vest when you do this, but envision the person you want to be in 1 year. Who is that person? What do they look like? What has that person accomplished in the past year? Now work back from that vision to find the steps you need to take to get there.
I want to here from YOU. When you looked at yourself a year away? what did you look like? What had you accomplished? I am excited to hear your vision of yourself.
