Create The Vision – The vision serves as a context for your business & your life. It shapes your thoughts, your feelings and your actions. Its the big picture and it expresses a part of who you are. We will start with helping you create both a personal vision and a vision for your business. If you already have a vision, we will help you identify and eliminate activities that are inconsistent – leaving you with access to more personal power, clarity & confidence.
What is your vision? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? What about 10 years? How about 25 years from now? Where do you see your organization? What are you creating for you life, your family and your community? These are the kinds of questions to start you on the way to creating a powerful vision. Start with your vision. Speak your vision! Be your vision! Next, do only the things that are consistent with your vision. Then, you will have every thing that comes with your vision.
Set The Goal – Goal setting is a critical element to your success. A goal must be specific & measurable. It has a definite date & time for its accomplishments. Its fulfillment should be inspiring to you and others in your life or business. Most people set goals based on what they know they can do or what they think they can do. We invite you to set goals based on what you want.
Creating goals from what you know or what you think is from the past. Creating goals from what you want, your life or your dreams is from the future. The purpose of the goal is to increase your awareness. For example, let’s say that you are just getting started in a part time professional services business like consulting or coaching. During your first year, you generated $25,000 in revenue. You have been contemplating going into business full-time. Based on the $40,000 a year salary of your current 50 – 60 hours per week full-time job, you decide that you will need at least $40,000 – $50,000 per year as a coach or consultant.
This goal is based on what you know or what you think you can accomplish. However, what you really want is to earn at least $75,000 per year while only working 25 – 35 hours per week. You want to work from home and spend more quality time with your young children. If you would be willing to put aside what you know for a moment and look from what you want, you would began to ask the kinds of questions required to increase your awareness. There are many people who earn $75,000 – $100,000 or more each and every year. The only advantage that they have is that they are aware of how to do it. They approach what they want and how to get it from separate places. They set the goal first, and then figure out how.
Do you have life and business goals? Are they written down? Do you review them regularly? Have you shared them with others? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? What would you have accomplished? What about in 3 years? How about a year from today or 90 days from now? What will you accomplish in the next 30 days or even next week? These kinds of questions combined with written goals, establishes a strong foundation for success in life & business.
