"Picture yourself in your minds eye as having already achieved this goal. See yourself doing the things you'll be doing when you have reached your goal." Earl Nightingale a
Many people have a written business plan but few have a written business vision. Today I asked all of my team - 16 of them - to write out at least two paragraphs of their vision of what they want their life and business to look like for one year from today - December 28, 2012. I wanted them to take the time to "see" themselves in their mind's eye one year from now. Yesterday, my post was about VISION and how you should always have a VISION before a PLAN.
My team was anxious to give me their "plan" which included their goals for 2012 but were a little reluctant to give me their VISION. It feels so risky. It is so transparent. It could make one feel so vulnerable. But it is so powerful.
Why not give it a try? Write your vision. Make it real. Read it daily for the next year. Do one thing each day that moves you closer to that reality. And then in one year see if you are not closer than ever before to the life and business you have envisioned.
VISION. Helen Keller said, "It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision."
