1. Discuss who you want to be 5, 10, and 20 years from now (discuss each of these individually). In this section, you should also address each of the following questions:
a. WHO do you want to be?
b. What kind of person do you want to be?
c. How do you want others to think of you?
2. Discuss what you are doing in your life (now/currently) that will help you to accomplish these goals. Also discuss how these current thoughts and behaviors will help you to reach your goals. I want to see the connection between what you are currently doing and how that can clearly help you in attaining your goals in becoming the person you want to be in the future.
3. Come up with a plan of what you can do in the near and distant future to become your ideal person.
a. What are some concrete things you can do now to help you accomplish your goals? (Don’t list abstract things, like thinking about xyz more or being more hopeful or optimistic. While these are good starts, I want to see more observable actions.)
b. What steps can you take to become who you want to be?
c. How can you make sure that you continue to grow as a human being?
4. Incorporate at least one theory or concept (must be something from the Bjorklund textbook that we covered in this class, this semester) into your paper.
a. Briefly explain what the theory/concept is.
b. Explain how this theory/concept supports your plan of action or how it will help you achieve your goals.
