Vision is what you are compelled to do – it is what consumes you at night and also drives you to wake up early.
Have you noticed something compelling, consuming and driving you in your thoughts? Some say they have an urge that will not go away…what is yours?
It can be a tiny…very small item to focus a set amount of time on or a grand vision that will impact the world.
But what is it that gets your vision done?
Small steps and some large leaps that are done with focused written down and reviewed everyday – GOALS!
Let me ask you right now…are you writing down what you have to do to accomplish your vision today – everyday?
Many do not write them down – and they wonder why they see time go by with no results or very little results done toward the achievement of their vision. So – they do nothing.
Goals are actions steps toward the accomplishment of your vision.
One thing I have learned is that you must be in a Growth Mindset to achieve what is known as a Flow State that is a directed focused on a target for a specific period of time to achieve your goal in steps.
A Growth Mindset is something I learned about in a book called Mindset by Carol S. Dweck and it is a state of mind that reveals to you that you can learn, change and that things can be cultivated over time.
The opposite of this is a Fixed Mindset and this is a state of mind that says you are done – no more learning or this is the way things are and will not change…so your actions reveal what you believe based on your mindset.
I can’t help you in a Fixed Mindset – but if you adopt the Mindset of Growth – we can accomplish a lot together.
I was listening to a program on Writing by Michael Hyatt and he said, “Attitude and a winning mindset are essential to taking on your goals – if you OWN what you do and who you are and take on the responsibility for controlling our mindset to influence our success – Ideas will show up – partners show up to help you – you attract what your mindset is and people will want to enter into what you are radiating – as they will avoid you as well with the opposite mindset (who wants to be with a negative take down mindset) and you learn to fight this every day and the creative process is something you have to take on all by yourself many days”. (I wrote this as Michael spoke it – so it is not a verbatim quote but modified).
Are people with you – NO! – ut-oh…you got some stinkin’ thinkin’? Are you radiating a Fixed Mindset?
or – Are people with you – YES! …then you have a Growth Mindset that attracts others – well done!
So, as you discover the goals that are needed to take on your Vision – discipline yourself to be curious, inquisitive and be selective in using your imagination to uncover goals and the steps of action that require a Growth Mindset and write them down everyday – go over them multiple times during the day – and over time you will look over your Goal Sheet (or put them on a specific calendar designed for goals only) and you will see accomplishments of what is being done or what needs to be done…this is what it takes to Lead with your vision…and writing them down will reveal to you a New Story and is apart of your New Walk.
