When I ran my Motivate Me workshops several years ago, there was an exercise I did that shocked many of the ladies sat in the audience. It was an eye-opener for all of us and a simple visualisation of how we shouldn’t ‘wait for the right time’ before we follow our dreams or action our goals.
Try it for yourself:
Take a 100cm length of ribbon and a pair of scissors.
Now ask yourself the following question; “What is the estimated lifespan of an individual?” When we did this exercise, my group decided that 80 years was about right. The actual figure is 79 years so they were pretty close. If you agree, cut 21cm off your ribbon and throw it away.
