I contemplated writing for Mind Body Green for over a year, but never thought I was a good enough writer or that anyone would be interested in what I have to say.

But Mind Body Green accepted the first article I submitted to them!  I wrote this article on how to figure out where you want to be in 5 years after seeing several of the people I work with struggle when asked to paint a picture of their life in two to five years.  I’m no longer paralyzed by this question and wanted to share what I’d learned.  But I was doubtful that Mind Body Green would publish the article.

It just goes to show, sometimes the only thing holding you back… is you. twitter aqua

So I dare you – do something you’ve been wanting to do but have been afraid to and post it in the comments below, on my Facebook page or tweet it to me.  Read my article in Mind Body Green and think of one thing you could do today that would get you closer to where you want to be in five years, big or small, and write it on the comments of the article.

How To Figure Out Where You Want To Be In 5 Years

“Where do you see yourself in five years?”

My first few weeks in grad school, it felt like I was asked this question daily. Thinking about the future would make my mind go blank. How could I not know what I wanted to do in five years?

I still get asked that question, and while it makes my heart pound, it’s not out of fear of not knowing the answer. It’s out of excitement and anticipation for achieving my vision.

Read the article on Mind Body Green to find out how to finally get the answer.  Leave a note in the comments on Mind Body Green about where you see yourself in five years, and if reading the article changed how you think about your future.
