This prosperous future speech by leadership development expert Chris Coffey discusses how to ensure a successful and happy future. He begins his speech by recognizing how important it is to have a clear idea of where you want to be in five or ten years from now.
He identifies three factors to consider when making this decision: future factors, future picture and future conduct. Future factors include health, career, happiness, meaning and relationships. Picture refers to what exactly you want your future to look like and conduct relates to how you'll act to arrive there.
Coffey believes that being honest and clear with yourself is the most important step to take, because this will motivate you to achieve your goals. He advises the audience to think like an architect and not a brick layer.
