I didn't believe it when I started a "future diary" 25 years ago, but the results have blown me away! Give it a try, just like I did, you've got nothing to lose and everything to gain!

A future diary... a subject I haven't really talked about on the podcast in a long time, we have a little more in depth training, but just to put it easily... first, you need to figure out your goals, what you want, and then you need to figure out why you want them. Then a future diary is where you set down... and I truly suggest writing this out by hand... writing down exactly what you want your life to look like. I'm talking about minute details.

For instance, 25 years ago, I wrote that we wanted to have a piece of property that was surrounded by a creek, have a beautiful home, up on a hill overlooking that creek and have horses on the property... to have animals on the property and have this amazing, amazing place.

Guess what? 10 years ago that happened. We don't live there any longer. 10 years ago, 20 years ago that happened. We don't live there any longer, but my kids... that ranch is still part of our family, part of our legacy. 

When Peggy and I go out to the ranch, we will stand up on the deck and look over and go, my God future diaries work. 

I would've never envisioned a place, this amazing. We had written in detail in our future diary, what we wanted it to look like. Man, I will tell you that place is so close.... so close to what we wrote out. 

There's been many other instances. I mean, I've lost a bunch of weight and I'm fit, I'm healthy, I'm happy. I have an amazing encore career at 68 years old. All things that were in that diary. 

I just can't believe. I can't believe how successful it is. 

So you write it all out. You go down to the smallest detail. Even what color is that house? What does the fences look like? What does the barn look like?

You create this beautiful image in your head, and then you just let it be. You go back every so often to check it. One thing I found was when I went back to my future diary, I would add to it, but I would also line out some things that maybe I didn't want anymore. I also would put little hearts and, and thumbs up for victories where things happened. 

So if you have not done it before, give it a try, try a future diary and see how it may change your life. 

Move well, stay healthy, be happy to live every day with passion.

Talk to you tomorrow.
