Crafting A Compelling Vision
What is your vision? Have you written a compelling vision for yourself and your business?
I'm not talking about a business plan. I'm talking about a compelling vision for your future. A dream that moves you forward. Don't get caught up in the how, focus on the WHAT... where are you going?
Alignment comes from lining up with where you want to go... kinda hard to do that if you don't have a direction to move toward. It's easier to hear the whispers of your intuition when you have a vision.
That gives me more energy than caffeine! That's the kind of vision I want to help you create. The kind that gets your creative juices flowing and puts your intuition on high alert... because you're serious!
Do you have a compelling vision for your future? Do have a dream that lights you up?
“ If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there? ”
1.the faculty or state of being able to see.
2. the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.
3. a mental image of what the future will or could be like.
4. an experience of seeing someone or something in a dream.
A vision is future sight; being able to see a clear picture of what you desire to come into being.
This is not a Step 1/ Step 2/ Step 3 scenario of the actions and “how’s” that will take you from point A to point B. I’m talkin’ about the dream.
When you have a vision that lights you up on the inside… the kind of vision that gives you as much energy as a cup of coffee in the morning, then you know you’re on to something.
I know that when you’re focused on the here and now reality of what your life looks like today, it can be hard to dream a new dream for yourself. But I have to tell you, it is a vital ingredient in creating the life and business that brings joy and ease.
You’ve got to know where you’re going in order to get there. Don’t worry about the how for now. The Universe can and will do amazing things to line up with your vision when you step into the role of CO-CREATOR. That’s all it’s waiting for… marching orders.
Here’s a few questions to get you started crafting your ideal vision. Grab a pen and paper. This is about to get fun.
Do this quick lil exercise and then read the questions below: Close your eyes and direct your focus on the spot be your eyes. Feel your focus and presence there. Now feel that inner focus move down behind your nose, behind your mouth, down your throat, past your collar bone, and let it rest right inside your chest. Feel it fill your chest and grow warm. Bring a smile to your lips. Sit there in silence with your eyes closed for a few moments…. two minutes, five minutes, ten minutes… whatever feels good to you. Feel a sense of peace and joy rise up within you.
After you’ve sat with these feelings, then grab your pen and paper…
Don’t worry if random and wildly improbable things come up for you. Don’t edit, just write.
See yourself in 3 years. Bring it into view.
Imagine you’ve just opened your eyes first thing in the morning. You throw off the covers and then… what? What time is it?
What do you want to see?
What does your home look like?
Where would you love to be living?
What activity would you love to see yourself doing?
With whom are you connecting? Your lover? Friends?
What are you doing at work? Working on a project? Painting something? Working with your hands?
While you are feeling this sense of joy, what comes up for you here? Is it something you love doing now or something totally new?
Where do you go to work? An office? A laptop in a coffee shop? On the beach? In the woods?
Describe your perfect client.
Do you have pets? Kids?
What do you do for fun? What are your hobbies?
What are you learning about? How are you growing?
After your days is through, where do you go to dinner? A meal at home? Swanky restaurant? A friend’s house?
What time do you go to bed? How do you want to feel when you sink into bed at night?
What else do you see? What feels good to you here, 3 years in the future? Continue to write until you have everything down.
And now close your eyes, find that focus point in your chest again. Allow the feelings of joy and warmth to grow again. Allow a smile to come to your face. Thank the Universe for bringing this vision to you.
You don’t have to worry about how you are going to bring this about. It’s not for you to know all the steps now. Just trust the guidance of the Universe and align with it daily.
Your job is just to trust that you will receive guidance and follow it when it comes.
