With new Covid-19 restrictions announced this week (October 5th) It’s very easy to feel overwhelmed and uncertain right now about your future.

Covid has certainly put the kibosh on so many things in our lives, but it doesn’t have to impact our goals, dreams and ambitions. 

Ive been doing a lot of research lately about the future self- probably following on from my interview with Dr. Benjamin Hardy ( link to that episode below) which is why I’ve focused this weeks episode on just that- focusing on the future self to help move goals forward today.

In this weeks episode I talk about your future self and asking yourself who you want to be in 5 years time.


Some of the points I cover are:

– Building your belief muscle

– The power of visualising your future self

– How your future self can help with decision making today
