“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
― Meister Eckhart
As I look at the calendar, I see that it’s time to welcome a new year. One of my favorite activities is starting anew – whether it’s in January or in June. It aligns with my philosophy that it’s never too late to create a new outlook on life and engage in course correction. As the quote above states, ‘trust the magic of beginnings’. With a fresh start mindset, decide to begin again. This decision will help you get clear about what it is that will make you happy, and focus on a positive, forward-thinking method of planning your future
For many years, I’ve been helping people transform their lives and successfully transition from one life stage to another. I help my clients clarify their intentions, create their vision, build a plan, and chart their progress toward living a life they love.
I have developed a 5-phased approach that I’m happy to share with you today. Perhaps what I’m about to share with you will help you seize the day and take the first step in creating a life YOU love. Perhaps today is YOUR day to become intentional. I’ve published 2 tools to take you in this direction. The first is Building A Powerful Vision Board – a book that guides you through the process and philosophy of building vision boards. – A Vision Board is a method of goal setting and life transformation. It is a visual expression of what you would like to see present in your life. The process of creating a Vision Board gives you an opportunity to spend focused time and energy reflecting on specific items, elements and situations you want to attract into your present and future.
The second tool is Building A Powerful Vision Planner – A one year planning tool that helps you clarify your intentions, create your vision, build your plan, chart your progress and success. From big ideas to monthly goals, the Planner provides everything you need to jumpstart your life. Both books are available on my website, and via amazon.com.
So – on today’s topic –
I call my 5-phased process “Building A Powerful Vision”. Its five elements are Clarity, Hope, Confidence, Momentum and Happiness.
- Clarity is energizing. It is refreshing to clear away doubt about the direction you are headed.
Hope fuels your fire. Hope is the emotional state that promotes your belief in a positive outcome.
Confidence results from creating a realistic and well-developed plan. Once you have clarified what it is you want in your life, you can begin forging a path toward your goals.
- Momentum increases once your vision is established, your goals are identified, and your plan is in action. Without a vision for what you want in life, you will likely be limited to motion or small movement in no particular direction.
- Happiness is the result of the four benefits listed above. You are clear about what you want, you are hopeful that you can fulfill your dreams, you are confident that you will reach your destination, and your momentum will swiftly take you there. Happiness also results from enjoying the journey, not just the arrival at your destination.
You have the power to everything described above. You have the capacity to build a powerful vision and strengthen your vision with goals, planning and priorities. You are invited to embark on an intentional journey of personal and professional growth. You will increase your effectiveness in both areas, and you will optimize the contributions of those who are helping you achieve your dreams. You will gain momentum and fulfill your vision.
