Three Steps to Bring your Vision to Life

Step 1 of Writing Vision and Mission Statements is: DEFINE the VisionTo get Clarity of something far away, we would call upon our trusty Telescope, as the view is significantly clearer than with the naked eye. This is in the context of creating a vision of at least 5 plus years.

I suggest you pull out the Telescope within and use it to create your IDEAL scene. Use it to look out to what the view will be like 5 years from now. Hold that telescope within up to your eye and look through the lens. At first the view is a little blurry. But as you start to turn the focussing dial your view becomes a little clearer. As you’re turning the dial to make the view clearer you’re creating a clear picture of what your business or life is is like.

 Telescopes

Imagine the ideal day, the ideal week, the ideal month, the ideal quarter, the ideal year. Imagine you have the ideal team, the ideal systems, the ideal suppliers, the ideal cash-flow, the ideal customers and clients, the ideal culture, the ideal marketing, the ideal premises, the ideal brand, the ideal resources, the ideal products and services.

Imagine the activities you are involved in on a daily basis that you’re passionate about…. Remember to be creative, have no boundaries, don’t get caught up in the how, just get clear on the what……Now imagine how having all those ideal scenes is serving you….how is your lifestyle, describe how you’re feeling, and describe the impact it is having on your life and the lives of others.

Exercise "Continuous Writing"

With the creative juices flowing it’s now time to take out a blank piece of paper and just put pen to paper. Write the story and as pictures enter your mind, just write what comes up and keep going, use the various areas of your business or life to kick off the paragraph. Use vivid words and use all your senses. You can start out by starting each paragraph as……..My ideal scene when I turn the dial on my telescope and focus on my Finances Team…….

For example

My ideal scene when I turn the dial on my telescope and focus on my Team is I notice how everyone is working harmoniously, everyone is arriving to work with excitement, enthusiasm, and real purpose. When I stand back and observe their behaviours, and the way they are all communicating and interacting with each other, it’s like they’re all playing to the same beat. Even when someone is away the Team steps up and covers the work that is required to meet deadlines.

It really does appear that Together Everyone Is Achieving More. Our team members are getting thank you cards and letters from our customers and clients, and they comment on their enjoyable experience. I’m so grateful and proud of our team and really enjoy celebrating our success with them and their families at our quarterly events.

Now continue the process for the various aspects of your Business and see what starts to appear. Notice how you’re feeling and notice your energy levels. Remember to stick with the what….not the how.

Step 2: DETERMINE The Steps to get there

Having this new focus of the Ideal scene means you can now set specific Goals and create an ACTION Plan. It’s key to determine the steps and then be deliberate in following through on them by taking action.
For example the first Goal might be "To have everyone in roles that match and play to their strengths and unique abilities by the end of the next quarter"

Another goal might be "To have all our meeting structures and communication process established and functioning by the end of the quarter"

Step 3:DO IT!!

This is the most important step of all. It’s no use spending time to get creative, get specific, set goals, and plan unless you’re actually going to EXECUTE or IMPLEMENT the Plan. Ensure you set time in your calendar each week to work on them.

Where your ATTENTION goes your ENERGY Flows……..

So what’s the purpose of creating vision and mission statements?

The Purpose or reason why you should create them is to inspire you or others to take action towards a Brighter Future.

Having a vision written in your own words, with the pleasurable end result expressed clearly can unleash deep creative forces of desire, commitment and personal power.
The theory is that in writing, you activate the right side of your brain and you put in action a process of unconscious goal setting. This process motivates you on a deep level to create and exploit circumstances, opportunities and your will power to focus your efforts to achieve your goal.
Some people report after writing a vivid description of their vision, that their goal became effortless, that circumstances appeared to conspire to their advantage and that everything seemed to fall into place.
When writing your vision, describe the view of what it looks like. Describe who is in it, what it looks like physically. Describe what the environment looks like. Describe the benefits of having your vision become a reality. What positives come from achieving it?
Tip 1 for creating vision and mission statements – Write at least half a page – Engage yourself and feel how great it’s going to be to achieve your goals – get carried away! 
Tip 2 for creating vision and mission statements – Time Travel ahead 90 days – write about your pleasurable end result! Tell us what’s happening around you! 
Tip 3 for creating vision and mission statements – Use present tense language – “I have achieved what I had set out to do” 
Tip 4 for creating vision and mission statements – Involve your senses – what can you smell, hear, touch, feel emotionally and see when you have achieved your goal? 
Tip 5 for creating vision and mission statements – Make it exciting and inspiring! 
Tip 6 for creating vision and mission statements – Read it out aloud five times and make changes as you go along.
 

You can enhance your vision and mission statements by making your own slideshow, short video or mind movie. Include pictures, images, sound effects, yourself, voices etc. Make a point of watching it at least once or ideally twice a day.   

To your success
