People who have been through a goal setting workshop or session with me know that I focus on really thinking with a mindset that “anything is possible” before starting to write down my 10 year vision. It helps me remove current restraints and really dream big. One of my favourite examples to explain this is to suggest that in 10 years I will be the President of the United States of America.
The things that currently deem this as “not possible” are current laws, my current level of experience (or rather inexperience) in the political system, and, probably most importantly, my current lack of any desire or drive to actually be the President of the United States. Since I was not born in America, the current laws say that I can’t be President. Consider, however, what would happen if in 5 years a law was passed that said ONLY Canadians can be the President of the United States. How would the current laws then stand in my way or help me in achieving my fictitious 10-year goal of being President? Would I still deem my goal “not possible?”
The video below was sent to me by one of my clients about the upcoming 2012 American election – and the fictitious Canada Party that is running. I had to laugh. Looks like more people are dreaming of what the States would be like if Canadians were running the show.
Things change. Plan for it.
Then do something to make that change happen.
