Are you where you want to be?

looking with binocularsI just watched a video from a very smart marketer who coaches people (mostly women) on how to follow their dreams, build a business, and become what they want to be. Her message was about your ten year plan.
Let’s say you have an idea for a business, and you think it will be successful but you are afraid to give up what you have to get what you think you want. Should you do it?
So envision yourself in ten years. Will you look back and regret not taking the chance to do what you want? If the answer is yes, you’ll regret it, then you should absolutely go for it. That doesn’t mean throwing up your hands and walking away, blindly jumping into your new vision with both feet. It means plan your exit and your future at the same time.
I believe this is good advice. I know where I want to be in ten years, sitting on a beach, writing and encouraging others to do the same. I have an advantage that I am winding up a career I no longer find inspiring. This is my opportunity to focus on what I want for the next ten years of my life. However, even if I wasn’t in this unique position, I would make a plan to get where I wanted to be in ten years, even five years or less.
So what’s holding you back?
