The beautiful thing about this industry is that anything we want to create in our lives is ours for the taking, as long as we have a clear vision.
In order to get where you want to go, you must have a vision. It’s important to be able to picture yourself, VISUALIZE yourself, exactly where you want to be in the future.
You need to forget about ‘what is’ and start focusing on where you want to be and what you want to have and accomplish.
People who achieve great success can see ahead of the pack. They can see 6 months ahead, 12 months ahead, 5 years ahead. They’re able to see trends, they’re able to see where the group needs to be, they’re able to see where they need to be. They don’t have their eyes locked into the here and now. They see the bright future and know what things will look like when they reach their destiny.
While working hard for today, they live for the future.
As Stephen Covey says, they “begin w/ the end in mind”.
They see what is out ahead of them and they set for themselves a course by which they can get there. They believe they can get there (optimism), they see what they want to achieve, and they relentlessly pursue it.
If you don’t know why you’re doing what you’re doing, the chances of you succeeding at it are slim to none. You need to have a strong vision.
A Billion Dollar Vision
The founders of the network marketing company I’m involved with have a huge vision. They started the company working out of their garage, and now they’re in a 100,000 square-foot facility (debt-free) generating $50 million in sales annually.
A question they regularly ask themselves is,”What do we want to do w/ this company, where do we want to take it?”
Their goal is to be a billion dollar company by the end of 2018. They can see themselves and the company there, and they have a plan in place to make it happen. The company is right on track to make it happen, and it certainly wouldn’t be w/out the strong vision of the founders.
There are many ways to create your vision… you can write it out or create a dream board, for example. If you create a dream board (or book), I would suggest writing out your vision as well.
The reason for this is that it works best to have your vision in the present tense,as if it’s already happened. Write down what it feels like, how you’re spending your day, who you’re spending it with, etc. Then you can access the emotions that you’ll feel when you get there… and those emotions will keep you inspired and help you get there faster.
One of the most powerful ways I’ve found to create your vision is by making a ‘mind movie’. It’s a little movie you create that puts the words and the pictures together for you to watch… and you can put it to the music of your choice, which really helps to get the emotions tapped in. Then you can watch it every morning and every night, and it will move you toward your vision FAST!
I created one of my own. You can check it out here:
And if you want to, you can create a mind movie of your own.
Here’s to your beautifully created life… have fun with it!
