Vision – High Definition or Greyscale?
“Passion is meaningless without vision. Vision is how you will make the world a better place.”
– Steve Jobs.
At some point in our lives we all want more. We know there’s something out there for us and that we can make a difference but life gets in the way and we settle. Or we get busy with day-to-day living and forget about the bigger picture.
This is particularly pertinent in business and especially network marketing. A crystal clear vision is the absolute basis of a millionaire mindset and creating a million dollar vision. It helps you look beyond the day to day, to where anything is possible and fuels your action to make it so.
Who are you really? What do you want out of life? What is your purpose? These are three questions you have to answer before you can cement your vision. They may seem like deep and meaningful questions for running a business but that is exactly the difference between a million dollar business and a hobby. If you’re working in line with your purpose and your vision, you are already well on your way to success.
In the words of Nelson Mandela: “Vision without action is just a dream; action without vision just passes the time – vision with action can change the world.” Stop selling yourself short. You are capable of incredible things – but it is up to you to determine what that is and create your vision accordingly. If you don’t, you’ll simply be passing time.
Think of your vision as a high-definition movie. It should be crisp, exceptionally coloured and almost in 3D. Can you zoom in and see the details? Or is it kind of fuzzy and non-specific? If someone woke you up in the middle of the night and asked you what your vision was, could you answer within seconds? Chances are you don’t really even have a bigger vision than the immediate goals or tasks you have to fulfil to get through your current situation. And therein lies the difference.
Create the grandest, most exceptional vision of how you would like your life to look like. For you, your family and those nearest and dearest to you. Once you have the exact intention of where you are going and what you are creating, you can work backward and nut out the smaller steps that will add up to get you there.
Not only will this give you powerful emotional fuel to begin your journey, it will give you motivation and inspiration to keep going through rejection, objections and exceptions. Your vision will change and evolve as your business journey does too, so it’s important to revisit it as often as feels necessary. Make it your priority today to sit down and cement your vision, get into massive action and watch the rest of the pieces fall into place.
