Life Map

Mission [far in the future]

(Self LESS impact. Gives you DIRECTION and FILTERS OUT distractions)

I want to champion the worth of every individual, and foster an inclusive environment around me

In order to create a world that embraces diversity of all kinds

Identity

I treat my body like gold. I fill up on the good stuff, the kind of food that makes me feel alive. I move it and groove it daily, because life’s too short to stay in one place. I take care of my skin because it’s the cover of my life’s story.

I’m here to play hard and laugh loud. I dive into each day with zest, squeezing every drop of joy out of the moment, big and small. I find fun in the everyday, and I light up the room with energy. I chase the sunrise, dance in the rain, and never miss a chance to make life a little more vibrant.

Vision [about 1 year in the future]

(Self ISH. Serves as INSPIRATION to go the extra mile and push yourself.)

It’s Saturday, May 10, 2025. I and Bita are getting ready for our goodbye party tonight, and we are feeling anxious and excited at once!

We are leaving in a few days to a new country to begin the next stage of our lives. We have our money invested to generate most of our living costs. We also have cash on hand to fill up the gaps if we need to. My business is slowly growing, but I’m not worried any more – I work on it to advance my mission, not to get money to live.
