VISION WITHOUT ACTION IS MERELY A DREAM. ACTION WITHOUT VISION JUST PASSES THE TIME. VISION WITH ACTION CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. — JOEL A. BARKER
Do you have a vision of what it is you want in life, for your family, for your health, etc? THIS IS YOUR CALL TO ACTION. Don’t put it off any longer – stop to think about it right now. Check out these three simple steps to pursuing your life vision.
Step 1) Bring your Vision into Focus
What is it that you want? Who does that impact? Is it something that you are willing to fight for? If you couldn’t fail, what is it that you would be doing? Picture all aspects, how would you spend your time, where would you live, would you travel, etc.
Step 2) Take Action
Once you have a vision of what you want, the next step is to put it into action. Think about your priorities. Do your current priorities align with your vision? Does something need to go to free up time?
If your vision includes a health aspect have you previously pushed fitness and nutrition to the bottom of the list? Does that need to change?
If your vision includes a financial aspect, are there expenses that can be eliminated in the short term to free up cash to put towards your long term vision?
Is your vision worth getting up an hour earlier, is it worth turning off the TV or logging off Facebook to work on, is it worth researching to learn more about?
Step 3) Surround yourself with Support
Next step surround yourself with people who will support your vision! You must be willing to share your vision with others. Be proud of your vision and find those that have a similar vision to hang out with. Lean on them for support. Find out what it is they do.
And most likely during the process you will become uncomfortable and fear will kick in. So remember what Theodore Roosevelt said about that “In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The next best thing is the wrong thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing”.
If you are willing to share, I would love to hear your visions for life!
