How to Be Driven to Live Your Vision
If this metaphor resonates with you, the question to ask yourself right now is this:
Despite the challenges of running a successful Life Coaching business, today I am currently living two of my imagined visions. And it gets even better! Next week, I will have fulfilled a 2-in-1 goal set in August 2012 which at that time seemed wildly improbable. In just under one week from now, I will be delivering a presentation to an audience of approximately 300 participants at the Motivated to Xcel Conference in Accra, Ghana.
I am indeed excited! Especially as 7 months ago, I stepped away from my business to take up the 'security' and 'relative stability' that comes with being employed by someone else. There were gains within this time, for I connected with those who I needed to. Yet I felt an overwhelming sensation of a gaping hole in the imagery of my vision.
I learned that being a life coach and a business owner, requires not only the acquisition of new skills, but the development of things that are not seen. Specifically, inner knowing, trusting intuition, having discernment in when to say yes or no, finding work-life balance and devoting time to revitalise energy. A further key component to my success is the one hour of personal, confidential and non-judgemental 'self-focussed' time that I invest with my own life coach. Applying these strategies are key in my ability to bring to life the seed thoughts of a vision that I have nurtured to become a living reality.
Now, being back at the helm and experiencing renewed success in the living of my vision, I have taken time to reflect on principles that help me to remain on track with my life purpose. Crucially, had I not decided to commit, it is unlikely that I would be venturing to Ghana at this tiime and for the specific purpose. In honouring my values, I have set in motion an exciting life path that adds to the rich experiences of my co-created reality.
Here are 5 approaches that have influenced me along the way:

What I know for sure is that if I had downscaled my vision, abandoned it or been dissuaded by the beliefs of others, I would not now be stepping into this amazing opportunity that is in line with the fulfilment of the grander 'way way out there vision' that comes closer with every determined action that is done today.
