2. Hoped-for Possible Selves.

In addition to having expected possible selves, we may have images of ourselves in the future that we hope or would very much like to become. 

Some of these hoped-for possible selves may seem quite likely, like you having good health or you being a successful business person, while others may seem less likely, like you being very rich. 

Some of us may have a large number of hoped-for possible selves in mind, while others may have only a few.

Think about the future for a moment then type your thoughts in the box below.

In the space below, please list as many as you can of the hoped-for possible selves that you hope to become in the future.
