Your vision is the foundation for everything you do. Having a vision, allowing yourself to dream about the possibilities is the answer to bringing it all to life. A powerful vision is what keeps you excited and motivated to drive it all forward every day.
I found this article the other day, it is one of many articles that discusses the importance of having a big vision, of having a dream. It covers some of the strategies I use with my clients every day that sets them up for the success they want and deserve.
It is about a 5-8 min read, depending on how quickly you read, and worth the time.
Once you have created your vision, what if you could create a Life Success Board that laid it all out for you? Would that excite you? A organized visual of your vision that you could hang up over your desk as your reminder every day? A Life Success Board that actually meant something?
I never liked vision boards personally. However, our...
Life has been one roller coaster ride after another since March of this year for everyone.
We are making changes, pivoting our life, business, career, and making decisions about school for our kids.
We are learning to get comfortable with change.
Today I was on a call with my own coach, and I’m watching my girls in the pool outside at the same time.
I see my girls from the corner of my eye in the backyard with the blender in hand to make what I assume are slushies. They took it outside so as not to disturb me. Very thoughtful but also somewhat worrisome. When I am coaching I am focussed on my clients, but I still have an ear listening to what my girls are up to.
As a business owner, I have had to change directions and pivot my business approach a few times already this year.
Business, clients, life, kids, and...
What is your story?
We all have a story, a past story, present story and a future story.
Each part of our story makes up who we are and who we will be. Parts of our story may be terrible, not so great, good and amazing.
If you were to think of your life like a book as you flip through the pages of your life, there are array of emotions, actions and circumstances we have experienced. Laughter, tears, sadness, power, strength, anger, regret, and so much more. Each circumstance provides you with an opportunity to learn and experience something that will support you in your choices and growth.
You get to decide if your experiences with help you grow, love, and succeed OR, hold you back, hate, and regret.
Think about when you are on the last page of your story book, what will it say about you? What impact will you have made?

Creating your Vision and purpose is the first part of having a successful business. The second part is having a sustainable action plan that lays everything out to reaching your bullseye and making your dream a reality.

Why is a powerful Vision so important for your business?
Your vision is your:
The Protein shake in the morning
The cup of coffee that starts your day right
The work out session that leaves you feeling exhilarated
The wake-up call that shakes your world like an earthquake
It is your power source that keeps you excited and drives you to the finish line.
If you don't feel like this, YOUR VISION is not big enough or it is not the right one for YOU.
Think of your vision like a GSP. We use our GPS to get to a location. Your Vision is very similar. You would decide where you want to go and enter it into your GPS to direct you on how to get there. Your GSP will also redirect your when there is an accident or traffic and then bring back to your path to get you to your destination.
Your Vision is your GSP for your business. Your vision is where you want to take your business, where you want to go. Without your vision you can not create a...
I love hanging out with my kids because they are always teaching me lessons and allowing me to see the results of my reactions. When my eldest daughter was 4 she was always pushing the limits and has been doing so since she was two years old. It’s her job.
When I was pregnant with my second daughter I had to go shopping for a pair of open back shoes as my feet were swelling and I could not fit into anything. I brought my eldest daughter with me who was 2 ½ years old at the time. She found these shoe horns and space pads under the seat I was sitting on. She pulled some out and was playing with them when she then looked at me and said “Mommy can I have these?”. I automatically said “no they belong to the store and they are not for us to take”. She looked right at me and said I can ask. I was just about to say no again and something reminded me about a training I took a while back that in life...
This is a great article that describes the power of having a vision in the simplest of terms, and points out that the most successful people on the plant had a vision. The pitfalls in life are just a part of the process, especially when you have a strong vision that keeps you motivated and moving forward.
Like many of the people listed in this article, they were all discourage from doing what they envisioned was possible and are the best in their industry today.
It is a short but powerful read. Enjoy.
To Your Success,
