Your Future Self

“Imagine your best future self, and start acting like that person today.” -Brendon Burchard
What if I told you that you could choose how your day unfolds, every single day.
What my life looked like 5 years ago?
I cried every morning on my way to work. I ate my feelings. Every time I felt stressed or anxious, I turned to my kitchen. I drank my feelings away. I’m not proud of it, but I depended on alcohol to numb my life. I felt like a failure in my classes because I didn't feel like I was teaching as well as other teachers. Instead of learning and asking questions, I blamed others. I blamed my situation and my resources.
And anything bad that seemed to happen in my life?
I blamed everything on everyone else, instead of reflecting inwards.
During this time of my life, this time of pain and un-acceptance, I forgot that we always have a choice. That even when shit hits the fan, my outlook and attitude can influence the outcome.
Several weeks ago I had sat in a meeting where I was told that people didn’t like what I was doing. At first I slipped back into some old habits - I cried, complained, and blamed things on other people.
Then I stopped myself and asked myself, “Ashton, do you REALLY want to go back to that place of anger and depression?”
Hell no I didn’t!
So I got on a call with my own coach and she gave me amazing questions to find out. I went and bought Gabby Bernstein’s book “Judgement Detox.” I did a forgiveness meditation every single morning. I did forgiveness EFT every single morning. I prayed EVERY SINGLE MORNING.
Three weeks later and I felt more at peace than even before the meeting. I am PROUD of myself for choosing a better path.
I am stronger mentally and emotionally now. NOW I am asking myself, “Girl if you can conquer that. Let’s see what else we can do!”
It is so damn empowering to CHOOSE how you react to the things that happen in your life instead of letting life control you.
