I bet you have at some point in your life played down your vision and dreams for yourself, your life and the world because the little voice in our head has said…..
“Don’t be silly it’s not possible.”
Or “You’re not good enough to do that.”
Or “Who do you think you are to want that!”
Or you’ve worried about what other people might think.
You’re not alone.
Too many people have.
So many people are keeping their VISION small. They’re VISION has been contained and hasn’t be allowed the freedom to expand.
And it comes out as boredom, frustration and exhaustion, even when they think they’re doing what they want to be doing.
A powerful VISION is what most people who feel like they’ve succeeded have had.
And when I say succeeded I don’t necessarily mean in terms of money or status.
It could be in solving a problem like providing water, or clothes or refuge for those without.
Or it could be telling their story in their first book.
Or circumnavigating the world in a hot air balloon.
Those people have used their VISION powerfully……
They have allowed their VISION to grow as big as they could imagine and further! They’ve made their VISION feel so real they could picture all the detail. And they’ve pictured themselves fulfilling their VISION before they really had.
Dame Anita Roddick who founded The Body Shop set up her first retail store in Brighton. Her main aim was to finance and support her family. But her VISION was to celebrate and protect the human body and for her business to be socially responsible, respect human rights, the environment and animal protection.
Clearly, this resonated with many, many people!
And even as The Body Shop company grew, Anita stayed true to her VISION and even took it to champion for different causes beyond her business.
Having a powerful, compelling VISION is one of the most effective motivators.
When things are feeling tough, when things feel like a struggle, when things feel uncertain the best place to go to is your VISION.
Your VISION will remind you why day in and day out you’re doing what you’re doing.
It will be your North Star guiding you to make decisions and choices that will take you another step forward.
Go as far as you can imagine and then go further!
Explore these questions:
If everything was possible, what would I love to achieve?
Why do I want this?
What are my reasons?
And then write down this VISION – every part of it, especially the part where that little voice comes in and says “that’s silly” or “don’t be ridiculous”. I want you to go there too.
Then do as others have done – picture that VISION so it feels so real, revisit it daily, make a plan for how you’re going to realise it and celebrate every decision and choice you make that’s in line with it.
Because you do have the potential to succeed at everything you put your mind to! You have the right to make the impact you desire. All you need to do is give yourself permission to dream so big and take action!
