The most important action you can take to succeed in any business.
You’ve probably heard this before many times, but if you hear something over and over, it means it’s important!!
You have to know where your destination is if you’re going somewhere and it’s no different in business.
It is absolutely necessary to know exactly what you want out of life in all areas:
- Spiritual (not necessarily religious)
The easiest and most effective way I know to do this is to visualize your perfect day. Let’s say it’s 5 years from now and you have just awakened to a perfect day. Your life is Fantastic! You feel energized and excited. Look around your perfect bedroom. What do you see? Who are you with? Leaving the comfort of your bed, you delight in the beauty of your home. What sounds do you notice? Smells? As you walk thru your home, What colors do you see? You look outside the window, is it cold or warm? What do you see outside? What’s in your garage? What’s in your backyard? Where is your neighborhood?
Then go through the day. What/where will you eat? What will you do? With whom will you do it? Whom will you help? What situations are typical with your perfect life? What activities will you participate in?
Don’t limit yourself at all. Don’t worry about time or money. While you’re dreaming this up, HOW YOU GET THERE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
Write it all down in a notebook. EVERY DETAIL! If people would do this exercise at night instead of watching TV, there’d be no economic crisis.
Once you have it down on paper, go thru each element of your perfect day and label each in one of the 12 categories above.
Now that your destination is clear, make a goal notebook and start writing goals for each element. Your dream should make you cry. If you feel strongly enough about your dreams, the HOW will appear- in other words, you decide that whatever it takes, you’ll do it!
Now imagine at the end of perfect day, the one you love (hubby, wife, child, etc.) grabs you by the hand, looks into your eyes, and says, “”Thank you…” then gives you a big hug…whispering in your ear, “Thank you for doing what others wouldn’t do, so that we can live like others can’t. You’re wonderful.”
Once you’ve written out your perfect day, or even if you need help making it happen, call me.
