Embrace the Motivating Power of Vision

“Stalled”…“Can’t take next step”…“Stuck in rut.” We have so many ways to describe these feelings, likely because everyone experiences them. Sometimes we have no idea what we’re supposed to do next, both in business and in life.

What many of my coaching clients learn is that you can’t take the “next step” until you know where you’re going in the first place. Before you “Eat, Pray, Love” your way to self-discovery, start simple and check out this short video. It might be the simplest “next step” you ever took!

Video transcript:

Occasionally I’ll work with a coaching client who gets stuck in the moment, they become indecisive.

I find that this due to them having a lack of something to aim for. They don’t have a big vision of the future. And that lack of a picture leaves them without motivation.

Now I do believe in taking lots of small steps. But we also must have a big vision in the future that motivates us. We can look at it in two ways.

First, five years into the future, what do you want your life to look like? You want to have big, bold statements that inspire you.

And also five years into the future, what do you want your business to look like. Again in big bold statement that inspire you.

So, I’d like you to share in the comments section below, what’s one bold statement about your life or business and where you’ll be five years in the future?

Also, if you have a question you’d like me to answer in a future video, please ask that in the comments section below.

Thanks for watching and may your vision drive you forward.

  1. I will be exactly where my decisions take me both in life and in business. My goal is “To create an environment where honest hardworking employees can excel”. In five years my business will evolve into the well-oiled machine we crave it to be. We find ways we can do our daily tasks more efficiently, thus more profitably.

    • I love it, Lisa! You sound very confident and bold in this statement. So my one follow-up question for you to think about it: what’s one action you can take this week to move one step closer to that vision?
