People often underestimate the importance of having a clear vision of what they want in life. Others find it difficult to work out what they actually really want.
Having no clear direction is a bit like driving down a road in the dark with no lights on. How far do you think you can get without being able to see or know where you are going?
Without clarity about what you want to achieve and what your end goal is, how are you going to move forward?
Unless you have a clear direction in mind and the lights on, no one will get into your car to help you steer it either. A lack of clarity can mean that you are on your own with no help or destination.
The good news is once you have really drilled down into your what, why, who for and how then you can move forward boldly and attract the right people and clients on board. People who totally get where you are going and why. This is when the magic starts to happen.
I have worked with many people who know they need help moving forward, but usually where they want to get to is all in their head and they have no idea where to start.
My advice is to start with your end goal and then work your way back.
Get clarity in your own mind and then put it down on paper. Start to draw a vision of what you want to create – and I mean what you want every aspect of your life to look like. You can make a start with these simple questions:
- What would your ideal day look like?
- Where are you?
- Who is around you?
- What difference are you making in the world?
- What clients are you working with and how?
- How much time are you spending working?
- Who are you working with?
- How much money do you want to make?
- What are you doing that brings you joy?
- How do you want to feel?
I want you to see, sense and savour what you are trying to create.
Then, use your visualisations as an anchor and guide in determining what to focus your time and energy on. Ask yourself, will this bring me closer to what I want?
Clarity and a clear understanding of what you want to achieve makes you happier and more motivated. It also helps you to prioritise and stop spinning wheels which get you nowhere.
One of my favourite sayings is, ‘if it doesn’t give you income, inspiration or orgasms, it doesn’t belong in your life’. So, if what you are focusing on is not moving the needle closer to where you want to be, don’t do it.
