“I Don’t See Myself Getting Better”

The Curtain Falls

You might have just hit a rough patch. Or maybe those feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt are part of a larger problem that relates to anxiety or depression. Whatever the reason, you might feel like a big curtain has fallen that makes it hard  (maybe even impossible) to see a better future for yourself.

I Just Can’t See It

You can’t see yourself happy. You can’t see yourself as successful. You can’t see yourself in love. You can’t see yourself well. You can’t see yourself free of worry, fear, or doubt.

And seeing is believing.

You Have to See to Believe

If you can’t see it, you won’t believe it’s possible for yourself. If you don’t believe it’s possible, you won’t make steps toward making things different for yourself. So, how do you allow yourself to see something when you’ve lost that ability?

En-Vision: Call It Like You Want It

To allow yourself to see what is truly possible for yourself, ask yourself:

What Would I Do IF:

l. I had all the resources needed

2. I had perfect health and energy

3. I knew I could not fail

What would you be doing? Where would you be right now? Who would you be with?

One Last Question

Is there anything you can do today that allows you to take even a small step toward this possibility?

If the answer is yes… (hint: the answer is yes!), do it.


Don’t stop to tell yourself how it’s doomed and you’re going to fail and it doesn’t matter anyway. Participate in taking just one step toward your vision. Walk into the picture you just painted.

It’s better there. It’s going to be better.
