On the Cognitive Hypnotherapy forum there was a thread started that I really like the idea of.
It’s called a future pace.
The idea is that you write a post as if it’s December 2012 and the year has passed. You are reflecting on your achievements and challenges of the year. I think it’s a great idea.
It is particularly interesting for me.
If you’d asked me 6 months ago I could not have even thought of tomorrow, let alone next year. Now I can look right out to 2012 and beyond. So this was my response. What would yours be?
…I ran the London Marathon. Amazing myself that I wasn't the last person to cross the finishing line and that I crossed it the same day as I crossed the start line.
I passed my Cognitive Hypnotherapy course and immediately went into business part time generating a steady and reasonable income from weekend and evening work.
I quit my current job and went into part time consultancy again to ensure a steady income to support my family. It was tough on us all because I was away 2 weeks every month, but I was on a permanent high from working with people I like and respect and doing a job that allows me to help others. I am already planning on how I can do Cognitive Hypnotherapy full time and looking at opportunities to generate a steady income from it through business coaching and specialising in long term pain management.
I spent the year feeling happy for the first time in my life and looking forward to the future. Over time, I was able to help the hubby feel happy too (let's face it, it would be very annoying being around me otherwise).
The little one started full time school and loved every minute. She complains all the time when she can’t go to school at the weekend!
I reached my target weight and still get a buzz from going into a clothes shop and choosing based on what I like rather than what fits.
I turned 40.
2012 was the best year of my entire life. Without doubt (with a leader to make it that way from 2011)
So you want a turn? What happened in 2012 for you?
