Where will you be in 11 years?

A few weeks ago, my crew assembled around a big white clawfoot bath tub.

Chelsea snapped photos while Gregory fluffed my hair and Holly called out directions like, “OK, looking good, Susan. Actually wait, maybe that’s a little too much side boob. Turn just a smidgen to the left. Perfect.”

It was a photo shoot to create the cover image for my new book: BARE: A 7-Week Program to Transform Your Body, Get More Energy, Feel Amazing, and Become the Most Brave, Unstoppable Version of You. (Hitting bookstores in early 2019. YES!)

Somewhere between the 40th and 400th photo (it takes a lot of shots to get the right one!), Gregory leaned over to me and said, “Susan, 11 years ago, when you first opened your coaching practice, could you ever believe that this would be your life right now?”

I laughed and said, “Honestly, 11 years ago I was obsessively dieting and counting Weight Watchers points and then bingeing at night. I was so preoccupied with my weight and I was so self-critical and mean to myself that I didn’t have the time or energy to do much of anything. The idea of running a business or writing a book seemed impossible, back then.”

It’s amazing how much things have changed.

Today, I have two questions for you:

Where would you like to be in 11 years?

What needs to be burned out of your life in order for you to get there?

Maybe you need to release your pattern of dieting and bingeing and hiding from cameras. Maybe you need to tell your inner critic to chill the fuck out. Maybe for you, it’s all about releasing 10,000 pounds of emotional residue left over from your last marriage.

Whatever it is, commit to clearing it out of your life. Because you’ve got big things to do. So much potential. Things you can’t even fathom right now. It’s all waiting.

Who do you want to become?
