A New Year, Coming Around AGAIN!

In Abundance, Destiny, Success, Transformation, Vision Boards on 2014/12/28 at 1:24 pm

“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.

Link your impulse to “Begin Again” with tools to help you outline and stay the course toward success.

Your first step is easy.explore everything related to Building A Powerful Vision.  Visit my website (tessdenton.com).  Follow the icons on the page to jump into posts, pins and broadcasts that will help you create a life that is purposeful and intentional. You’ll find a new BlogTalkRadio episode every couple of weeks and a new blogpost a few times each month.

New strategies, ideas and perspectives will be coming your way throughout the coming year. Be safe and celebrate the New Year in style.

As always – Make it a great week!

Countdown to the New Year!

Countdown to the New Year!

Our early bird countdown to 2014 continues (Today is “2”. I previously included New Year’s Day in my countdown, so we just jumped over “3”).

If you read my posts with regularity, you already know that I follow Sam Parker’s work with GiveMore. Today he sent a list of top 5 lessons from 2013. As always, the messages are inspiring.

Just in time for our New Year’s countdown,  I am sharing a “best of GiveMore” post with you. Yesterday, we focused on appreciation . Today, the message is that a key to making 2014 your Best Year Ever is to be and find a Champion. 

The link below is to a TED talk by Rita Pierson. In Sam Parker’s words, “Remember … Never discount the value of human connection and the importance of the words and thoughts you allow to surround yourself. Both are the beginning of everything. Really.”

Click here to enjoy the TED talk.

That’s it for today.

Make it a great day!

Getting to GO!

In Abundance, Destiny, Goals, Mentoring, Prosperity, Success, Vision on 2013/04/07 at 12:40 pm
Ready For The Challenge

Ready For The Challenge

Ready, Set…  Ready, Set…… Ready, Set….

If getting to GO! is a problem in your life, you have plenty of company. If you perpetually remain on the starting block, you go nowhere. You are safe from failure if you never begin. However, you are safe from success, as well.

There are many reasons why people do not get to GO!.  Today, let’s look at 4 key causes of hesitation:

Lack of confidence, lack of certainty,  lack of a plan and fear of abandonment often top the list.

  • Lack of confidence: Do I have the intellect, the ability and the personality to succeed?
  • Lack of certainty: Is this my best option? Is this what I really want? Where will this choice lead me? Should I keep researching other choices? Can I trust this company? Can I trust myself?
  • Lack of a plan: I do not know who to approach with my service or product. I don’t know where I’ll find a job once I make the move. I cannot lease an apartment without a job. I have enough money to survive for three months, and then my finances screech to a halt. I don’t know enough about this industry. I’ve never been a business owner before.  I need to know more before commit. I’m just a big ball of confusion.
  • Fear of abandonment: Will my family support my choices? Will my friends help me stay optimistic and provide their support and encouragement while I build my business? If I choose to leave a dysfunctional relationship, will friends and family take sides on the issue, leaving me lonely and feeling like the villain?

If you are uptight or breathless after reading the list above,  Clarity may be the tonic you seek.  I refer to Building A Powerful sense of Clarity as the foundation for achieving your goals and what you want in life: Clarity is energizing. It is refreshing to clear away doubt about the direction you are headed, as well as what you do and do not want in your life.

Rather than talking  yourself off of the starting block, steel yourself against doubt. Reaffirm your belief in yourself and your reasons for to taking the  leap of faith to pursue your passion or give yourself permission to start over.  Use the 9 Key Points listed below to regain your clarity about key decisions in your life. Then GO!

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” ~ Helen Keller

My Path/Decision:

  1. Skills and Traits I possess that will make me successful in my choice:
  2. Key Reasons Why I am Choosing This Decision/Path:
  3. How choosing this path will change my life:

  5. Skills and Traits I’d like to develop in order to be more successful in this area:
  6. The first skill I will develop:
  7. People whose advice I’ll seek on my journey:
  8. People whose advice I’ll ignore on my journey:
  9. What success will look like for me:
