Success is easier when you know where you are going. Without having a clear destination to head towards we find ourselves drifting from job to job, relationship to relationship or wherever the wind takes us. Your vision is the big picture of your life, being clear on this big picture places you at the starting point on the journey to success. Your vision statement is a statement of your desire. It is your purpose. It is an accurate picture of what you will one day become.
A well thought out statement is not just about money, it describes what your values are, how you will continue to provide value, the image you want to portray to the world, where you are going and why you are going there.
We all have it within us to create the life we want for ourselves, the first step is painting the picture of the end.
How well do you know yourself beyond the obvious?
As you embark on the journey to success it is vital that you are aware of your personal attributes. Knowing your self is the beginning of wisdom and is an essential part of turning vision into reality.
This step on self-awareness will enable you to explore your personal strengths, identify your weaknesses, become aware of the external opportunities that you can create from yourself and gain an understanding of the things that could threaten your success. Having a snapshot of who you are allows you to become who you need to be.
Are you ready to know yourself more intimately so that you can start stepping into your greatness?
Have you ever daydreamed about anything and made a note of your daydream?
Step 3 encourages you to use your imagination to paint a vivid picture of a day in your life 10 years from now. Here you will gain an awareness of what you must do to make this day a reality. You will identify how you channeled your strengths and took advantage of your opportunities to make this day a reality.
What would your ideal day look like?
Where would you be?
What would you be doing?
How would you feel?
Are you setting goals that are aligned with your bigger picture?
Goals are an important part of our livelihood; they have spurred us on since birth and can prolong our lives. When we set goals that take us out of our comfort zone we are able to start pushing ourselves to great accomplishments.
In this step you will define a set of 10 goals for the next 10 years. Select the goal you want to work on first and identify ways to accomplish your chosen goal.
If you could accomplish any goal right now, what would have the greatest impact on your life?
What was the last action you planned to take?
Having concrete plans are great because we can use them as roadmaps to our destinations. Imagine builders deciding to build a house without a blueprint, chances are it would cost them huge amounts of money, time and wasted resources with the possibility that they may not even complete the job. Like blue prints plans are a necessary part of achieving goals.
In this step you will craft a goal achievement plan outlining the actions to be taken on your chosen goal, the start date, end date and the outcome of the action. Having a plan of action enables you to make swift decisions and places you in the position to take advantage of opportunities whenever they are presented to you. With a workable and practical plan you will become the master and commander of your destiny.
Are you ready to take command of your destiny?
What have you done to protect your goals in the past?
When laying plans it is important to recognize that nothing is set in stone. The reality is; no plan is ever faultless because we cannot foresee all of the external factors that can impact our plans.
In this step you will attempt to reduce the impact of possible pitfalls to your chosen goal by identifying challenges and putting realistic measures in place to reduce their impact.
If you were to wait for all challenges to be removed before you started anything new; chances are, you would not start anything at all because there will always be challenges.
Are you ready to face your goals challenges head-on and create your own gateway to success?
The only thing left to do now is TAKE ACTION because without action nothing happens!
At this point you have everything you need to take calculated action everyday. Everything you do from this point going forwards should be contributing to your vision and increasing your knowledge.
In the last of the 7 Steps you will be introduced to the Do-Evaluate-Learn system. This system will enable you to maximize the efforts you take to achieve your goal and allow you to track your progress.
Are you ready to start making your vision a reality?
