Visioning in real life

Many of us know that we want to create a vision for ourselves so we can get to where we want to in our lives.  Yet somehow, developing this vision is easier said than done.  What does visioning look like?  In my last post I outlined a process to guide you in developing a vision of where you want to be.  Today I will give you an example of how I applied this formula as I have set out goals for where I want to be in my business.

One of my goals is to be invited to speak and conduct workshops on the international stage.  As I achieve this goal, my vision is that I continue to be true to my values of family and relationship with my success.  To apply the formula of what it will look, sound, and feel like to accomplish this goal I have the following on my vision board.

I have a picture of an invitation from a Woman’s support network in Paris, inviting me to conduct a two day workshop with their membership on learning to live authentically in the moment.  Beside the invitation, I have a picture of my husband, my 3 children and their spouses standing in front of The Four Seasons Hotel in Paris where there is a poster displaying details of my workshop that is being presented.  Beside that I have a picture of me facilitating a workshop of woman.  The woman are smiling, chatting with each other, working at tables.  There are captions above the women’s heads indicating what they are saying about me “Thank you so much for this workshop, I feel inspired to make the changes I need” “this is exactly what I need to move forward in my life” . A caption above my head reads “I love what I do, I feel like I am truly making a difference in these women’s lives”.

As I work with this vision and putting the details on paper, I get into how it feels for me to accomplish this goal.  I pay attention to where in my body I notice the sensation of excitement and honor I feel to be able to do this work.  For me, the feeling is in the solar plexus, half way between the belly button and the rib cage.  I get in touch with the textures, colors and sensations of the feeling.  On my vision board, I  have the words to describe these feelings.  This vision board is displayed in my office.  It is specific to the goal I have for this aspect of my vision.  I have other vision boards that capture the essence of other goals that I want to accomplish.

I love this process as it is fun and inspiring.  The other thing I put on my vision board is the statement “This or something better is my goal”  which helps me be open to the possibility of an even better outcomes.

WHAT do you want?  Can you get into the sights, sounds, feelings and textures of the goal?  Allow yourself to dream.  As you gain clarity on what you want, the HOW to accomplish this goal will start to show up.

Take care and I will blog with you soon.
