What is your long term vision for Your Life?
I love asking this question to people. I have asked this questions thousands of times to everyone I met.
Most of the people I talk with I ask this question. What is your long term vision for your business, or your life? You can learn so much about someone by listening to the answers.
It’s a great conversational question.
Another question would be this one, what is your biggest dream? This question takes you to a more ideal scenario, or future, one full of possibilities.
The first question, “what is your long term vision” takes you more to your “default future”, one without coaching intervention, the way things would be as you see or expect them to be.
I love to get into the minds and dreams of these people. And it’s not only the people coach. It’s everyone.
So, what is your long term vision? I would like you to answer this question. Ok, first I would have to clarify what is -long term- for me. Long term is anywhere between 5 and 30 years (or more).
Let’s take as an example -5 years- time frame.
What is your vision for the next 5 years? In other words, where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
I am writing this article Saturday, June 27, 2015. It is 2.12 pm.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years, June 27 2020?
Where do you see yourself living, with whom? What do you see yourself doing? Do you see yourself married, divorced, engaged, alone? Where do you see yourself living?
I am going to answer this question in my own life….let’s see……
June 27 2020
I see myself living most of the time in Cuba with my amazing wife (don’t have a girlfriend now). I see having two kids and maybe adopting another one or two.
I see owning several businesses with my other health brand (Mejor Cada Dia). I see having several vegetarian hostels under that brand. Hostels that are focus on holistic health.
I also see owning a very successful boutique hotel, also with the same brand, having many courses online and offline that complement the holistic hotel.
I see myself very happy with a great partner, friends, and a team of excellent people.
I see making Turbomind a massive online platform for self growth, self development, spirituality and coaching. I see myself coaching 1000s of people every month through group coaching and also having an online show several times a week both in English and Spanish.
I see Turbomind having extraordinary products and services that dramatically improve people’s lives, from software, to inspirational products…….
I see having this hostels and business hiring handicapped employees, training them and making a difference in the community.
I see myself traveling whenever I desire with my soulmate.
I see myself inspiring many people and making a difference, millions of people.
This long term vision it’s almost like my dream life. But that’s the way I see myself, no exaggeration.
So, your expectations can match your ideal life.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
You can also do the 10, 20 and 30 year question.
Please, as an exercise, answer this question, even you could be surprise with the answers you give yourself.
