Does the next step feel like a huge leap?

🤢Are you waiting for exam results?

😳Embarking on the next phase of your life?

🤔Do you have no idea what you are going to do or how you will achieve what you really want?

🙈Perhaps you are feeling a bit stuck and have no clear vision of what your future looks like?

🌎 Wanting the courage to step out and make an impact on the world and that next step feeling such a huge leap that you don’t know where to begin – so you are frozen…

Feel the fear and do it anyway

Leaving school, University or for that matter even changing jobs is a major life changing moment that changes who you are.

An emotion can bubble up that might be ‘excitement’ or perhaps it could be ‘fear’.

If the latter, that ‘fear’ may be coming from the person who you are in the present moment, unsure of what the future holds and resisting change for fear of not knowing who you will become and the unknown of what that life will be like as you go through your transformation.

What if you could look beyond who you have been and where you are now in order to meet your future self; your future being an hour, a week or a month from now.

What if you could use that emotion and the experience you already have to propel you into your future with confidence?

Try this 

Picture a ladder in front of you and each rung of the ladder represents something you have achieved, a time when you or others around you have been proud of you.

As you take a step on to each rung remember that time, see now what you saw then, hear now what you heard then and FEEL now what you felt then. On a scale of 1-10 you want to be feeling as close to a 10 as you can before you can step up the next rung.

Repeat this until you have reached the top of the ladder and you are feeling good.

Then run, slide or jump down to the bottom and run, fly all the way to the top – allowing all those wonderful feelings to flow through your body.

At the top climb over the wall, in your imagination, and step into your future – taking with you all those wonderful memories and feeling so good as you step into that.

When you look back down at your present self at the bottom of the ladder, how different do you feel now?

Now notice what difference that makes.

Make that leap with confidence
