Many people go through their daily lives feeling overwhelmed. There are so many things to do and there never seems to be enough time or energy to do them all. Is this how you feel about your business, career, or life?
Have you promised yourself that this month you are going to make some serious changes but you just aren’t sure what those changes need to be?
Think about laying out a vision but make it a big vision. One that encompasses your passion in life and the gifts you have come to share. No matter what the focus of your business or career you have a lot to offer. You are unique and only you can contribute your strengths in your special way. Whether it’s staying at home and raising a family, making the best widget there is, the CEO of a company, etc. life is not a dress rehearsal so create your vision of what you really want and then take inspired action steps to attract it to you.
These are the same steps you can take to help you make the changes in focus and habit that bring meaningful results. First you must be willing to take action.
Without changing your focus and habits you will never be able to change the results.
Without taking action you will never move forward and reach the results you want. Business or career achievement is about getting results; listening to what the client really wants and working together, setting out the measurable steps to be taken that result in action and success.
You are responsible for the momentum; it will be up to you to take the actions on your own unless you choose to have the support, encouragement, guidance, and accountability that a coach provides.
Without the forward momentum and inspired actions it’s just a good thought. In order for your business to be successful, to be happy and fulfilled in your career, or prosperous and content in your life you need to have one common thread. Vision.
The process of creation starts with a thought, a great idea, a passionate want, or a dream of something magnificent to achieve. These are the intangible sparks that ignite our drive to move forward and turn the intangible into our reality.
Begin by brainstorming on paper, yes you must write it down to bring clarity, to make it real.
The first brainstorming session should be free flowing, don’t edit your thoughts or ideas. If you are working on your business vision and your work vision to define what you want and how you want to spend your time, start with the personal vision.
This will give you absolute clarity about what is important to you, what you want, what are the things in your life you are passionate about and that makes you feel fulfilled. From there you can create the vision of your ideal business or career and take action to bring what you really want into your life. Focus on what you really want, be very specific. Don’t just say you want lots of money, a nice home and no stress. Create a picture in your mind of exactly what you want down to the color of the carpet and the list of clients, and then using words draw that picture until your vision is clear.
I want a profitable and fulfilling holistic health practice.
I want to see clients in three different specialties plus passive income revenue streams.
I will work five days a week between noon and six devoting the rest of the day to self-care, gardening, exercising, and spending time with family and friends.
I will make $100,000 a year and take 5 weeks’ vacation throughout the year.
I love to learn so I will spend 3 weeks a year in educational workshops and training programs to advance my career and myself.
Additional steps I would encourage when creating and acting on a vision for your business, career and life based on my experiences includes but are not limited to the following:
- With all the information and advice available out there (free and paid) Don’t feel that you have to keep up with someone else’s pace. It might overwhelm you. Take in all you can and find time to sit down quietly and digest it all and then make out a business plan that suits you and where you are trying to go.
- Create a business plan and stick to it. It is the small things done on a daily basis that will move your business forward.
- Rome was not built in a day. Aim first to make genuine connections with people then show them how your service or product can help solve a problem for them. Then sell.
- Find your passion then find creative ways to convert it to lucrative business ideas.
- Appearance is important. Whether you are going to do business on your behalf or that of the company you work for, or if you are just going out to relax, look your best. It has been proven that people treat you differently based on your appearance.
You create what you put your energy on. If you concentrate on all the things you don’t want, on all the things you don’t have enough of, that is what you will create more of. Start creating what you do want today.
Start with your vision; clearly lay out your life, career, and business vision and then take the steps to make it your reality. One of the steps might include hiring a coach to make it happen faster for you.
