Vision… what possibilities can you create, say yes to this year?
“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”
~ Nora Roberts
What is your vision for this year? What plans have you made to incorporate your highest aspirations and goals?
Perhaps you’re clear – and perhaps you’re not. But this one thing is certain… as per the quote above, if you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it.
Oftentimes the most simple concepts are ones we miss because they appear too obvious. To facilitate clear thinking and developing more ability to “stay present,” the following are helpful:
1. Defrag your mind in nature; the ocean or the forest provide restorative moments so necessary to good health and a clear mind.
2. Are you focused on solutions or problems?
3. Do an inventory… where are you acting/not acting on what you most want?
4. What are 3 small things you can do today to focus and take action on what you DO want?
5. What are you grateful for?
Notice that where you have gratitude in life, things are probably bubbling along nicely. There’s most likely trust, peace and prosperity in these areas.
Notice where you do not have gratitude, that you get into trouble? Is there peace and prosperity in these areas? Are you trusting yourself?
Our attention will grow whatever we’re focused on, so get good at going into the “unknown” where solutions exist but may not be apparent yet.
As you head into the this month and the rest of the year, what do you want to grow?
They key to effectiveness is dropping self discovery and self development.
A big part of Visioning is taking time out to breathe and do a quick inventory; it allows us to course correct and get excited about our emerging vision again. Personal effectiveness can only grow as we evaluate and course correct. The key is kindness and compassion – they are relevant task masters by reducing resistance – the obstacle to true growth and change.
How can you incorporate kindness and compassion as practical strategy in moving forward? Part of why we don’t go after what we want is because we shut ourselves down… we may see our dreams and goals as too impossible. Kindness doesn’t do that… it allows, invites and shows a different way. It makes peace with the willingness to be in the wilderness of the unknown, where your intuition resides, waiting for you to call on it.
