There are a couple of motivational questions that are circulating Facebook: one is “If you could talk to your younger self, what advice would you give” and the other “If you had to write a letter to your future self, what would you put in it?”.
I’d like to propose a third: if your future self wrote a letter to you or gave you advice, what would it be?
Few people really consider these questions but I urge you to sit down and write a page in response to each question. Then go through what you’ve written and cross out anything that sounds even remotely like bitching.
Re-write the pages so there’s no whining or bravado in them. Do that and you’ll get a glimpse of what’s it like to be totally authentic with yourself.
And if you want to get really serious about getting to know the real you, take the Re-Discover Your SELF online workshop
