Having a vision for your ideal future allows your inner creativity to start moving you towards fulfilling that vision in your life. The first step of the online course is to create a vision for your future. It doesn't have to be perfect, it just needs to resonate with you. For inspiration, here's mine:
I routinely give myself permission to have the life that I desire without requiring other people's approval. I am willing to experiment and have the freedom to fuck things up and get it wrong from time to time, knowing that the more I am willing to get it wrong the more things will also go right. I am fully comfortable with failure and simply see it as a learning experience. I have healed all the wounds of the past so that I can be free to be my true self, fully expressed in the world.
I have many close female friends and feel very comfortable being myself around them sexually, emotionally and intellectually. I have a rich and fulfilling sex life with as many women as I desire. I feel comfortable expressing my sexuality around attractive women, and they feel grateful and appreciative of the opportunity to connect with me. Many women find me sexually attractive and desirable and I have an abundant choice in who I want to spend my time connecting with.
I have a network of meaningful, satisfying mutually supportive male friends who I can rely on when I need them and I give back to them in ways which make me feel energized. I have high self-esteem and am seen as a leader among men in activities that contribute to the well-being of others. I am the alpha-male that other men aspire to be, and I take great pleasure in offering whatever assistance I can to enable them to get there too.
I have let go of perfectionism and live spontaneously in the moment from my intuition. I feel confident that my needs will be taken seriously by others and that I can get them met with ease and grace. I make a positive difference in many people's lives and am a constant source of inspiration. I have learned to live in a state of flow, embracing the principles of self-honesty, self-actualization and living authentically. I feel powerful and have learned to let go of expectation so that I can fully appreciate all the richness that life has to offer. As a result, I get what I want in life. I get to travel regularly and feel comfortable in the company of the many new friends that I meet.
I have tremendous energy, health and vitality. I spend my work life on projects that inspire and energize me, and my leisure time on hobbies and other activities that I love. The distinction between the two is somewhat arbitrary because I love my work so much. I feel a tremendous gratitude for my life as a whole.
I have a successful business which makes more than enough money for me to live the lifestyle that I desire, while also allowing me to be very generous to others and support causes that are important to me. I have great friends and a supportive family with wonderful relationships. I regularly get up on stage to entertain, inform and inspire other people. I make a real difference in the world.
I love my life.
So that's my vision. I'm not there yet, but it gives me a goal to work towards and many parts are gradually coming to fruition.
