BK210 Dissolve the Wall: Using Your Creativity to Design a New Future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Imagine that you are standing in front of a wall that spans left to right farther than you can see. You see, the wall wasn't there yesterday. At least you didn't notice it. Now, it’s all you can see. You are stuck. There is a solution to dissolving this wall – your creativity and a compelling vision for your future. The difference between the winners and the "also ran" are the visions and powerful images they create about their future. This is true in athletics and it is even more important in life. Whether you are 16 or 60, having a compelling vision for your future is absolutely vital for success and health. Research on aging has found that those individuals who have a higher sense of purpose live healthier and longer lives. Learn how to take the long view for your future to move beyond the day-to-day tactics that may keep you in the past. You will:
• Leave this session with a vision of your future.
• Articulate specific actions you can take to propel you toward that future.
• Practice living out your new future using specific imagery techniques you can take home with you.
• Take creative action on a goal, challenge, problem or opportunity in your life.
