on our journey of creating a life worthy of our heart’s desire, I’m requesting that you let me help.

Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Creating your time capsule:
There’s something wonderful about a time capsule, especially when it contains those things you treasure. Successfully coaching people in Life Management strategies creates many treasured experiences and tangible outcomes, but even before beginning a Life Coaching relationship, you have a valuable collection of memories, hopes, and dreams from which to draw.
I’m suggesting that you complete the following activity. The two best resources I keep re-reading are:
Here are the instructions (from Falling Awake page 12):
Write a letter to yourself that sums up who you are right now and who you wish to become. To get your letter started, you can complete any or all of the following sentences:
- The most important thing I want to remember about this period of my life is …
- The most significant struggles I’ve experienced so far in my life are …
- The most important accomplishments I’ve experienced so far in my life are …
- I’m becoming a person who …
- The gift I most want to give myself is …
When you’ve finished this letter, date it and put it in a sealed, self-addressed envelope. Then put it in another envelope and send it to me (see below). I’ll treasure it and return it to you in 15 months. Another option is to email it to me (bob@RobertPRosen.org) and I’ll send it back to you in 15 months. Using a friend (including yourself) is an option too, but not always as much fun as expanding your network to include me.
The most important part is writing it down.
Our journey continues tomorrow.
