I know from my personal experience in being a work from home mom that I have gotten the idea of vision and goal setting and dreams all mixed up when it comes to my business.
Recently I hit a wall. Customers, clients, and team members just stopped showing up. And we all know what that means. No one to work with means no money right?
Well that can really suck. And if you are depending on that money you certainly can't sit around waiting to find out where the problem was or what was causing the break down, hang up,or finding what was broken in your business.
For me the no money thing wasn't really a problem. My business isn't the main source of our income right now (the story on how the mindset training here changed our income is for another day).
Want to know what happens when you are comfortable?
You sit on your lazy butt doing the same dumb things over and over again and don't bother to find out what isn't working.
Well I decided this weekend I am not okay with that any more. I am not okay with just doing the same old thing and only tweaking this or that little thing.
And I am making a major shift in how I am doing things. And the first thing that was hanging me up was that damn vision thing. Everybody that I spend time with that is making more than I am (and more importantly living and doing the things I want to be doing) has one.
I have goals. I have dreams. I know what I want to have in my life. But this vision thing really had me stumped because I thought it meant I need to make those goals and dreams my vision and that had nothing to do with it.
So what the hell is a vision then?
Well the definition of vision is
I found that by the way at http://dictionary.reference.com
Okay well that didn't really give me much help. I was doing all that putting myself in the perfect day and seeing what I wanted and putting it on my vision board. And little bits and piece would manifest, but that wasn't helping me with business.
Then the other day I heard one of these guys ( a mentor of mine actually) talking about vision. (God is it nice to hangout with other people that are where you want to be. Just so you get a glimpse into their minds when they speak.) Well my ears perked up and I listened intently as he was talking. I had heard this before, but for once what was said actually clicked.
I had been doing all this goal setting and stuff for my life and not for my business. Talk about feeling like a totally dumb ass. Well I did. And that feeling isn't good to someone that who had great grades in school without trying. It sucks.
All this time I had been manifesting, but I had not even tried to manifest in my business. Sure I had been trying to set a few goals for my business here and there, but I never really created a vision. I never really had a laser down focused goal to propel me forward.
Well that was then. (Last week to be exact. Hey I will own my failures. I am proud of my learning process and I am not afraid to share it)
I have a vision. I know who I am here to help. I know how I want to run my business. I know where I am going and I know who I will be reaching out to.
And it all happened when I focused on who I wanted to help and how.
My vision is to help that stay at home mom that feels like she is not contributing to society or to her family. She has lost her sense of purpose and desire. She wants to make a differnce in the world.
Why those moms? Because I have been there. I thought what I was doing didn't matter. I thought I could be replaced with a babysitter and no one would even notice. But I was wrong and if you are there then I want to show you that you are more than what you think you are right now.
You have so much to offer. I can show you how to move past that feeling, how to start dreaming again, and even make an income while doing that.
I am making it my goal to reach those moms.
But How? Show Me The Way
It's simple to create a vision that will propel you forward first it has to matter to you. Helping other moms feel like that matter and what they have to share is important is a huge part of what drives me everyday. I just didn't really know it at the time.
Second you take that thing that matters to you and marry it to where you want to go with it. What does that look like and how does that feel? Who are those people around you that you are helping and what goals have you helped them reach?
When you are crystal clear on that you just start! Start making everything you do about creating that vision and making it a reality.
I can't even believe how simple it was once I just understood what the hell vision should mean to me.
Now for those of you that are getting your dreams and goals mixed up with your vision. Quit. Stop now and get clear on what the vision is for your business. Know who you are going to help. How you are going to do it. And where you are going to be taking your customers, clients, or team members.
If you don't know how to do that then join my team and I will help you get clear.
