From Vision to Victory!
The journey begins with knowing what you want, your vision, and then confidently taking steps toward achieving it. It can be exciting or worrisome whether it’s a business or your personal life. Focusing on creating a vision is challenging, there are so many interesting distractions available. But “biting the bullet,” and “hunkering down,” you can get it done.
Whether your current focus is personal development or professional development you can take charge of your life—reinvent yourself if necessary—and achieve whatever you want. I know this is true because it is the story of my life.
Any time is a great time to stop and think of where we have been in life and where we want to go. You will find an excellent tool for doing just that with a lifeline exercise. A discussion of the usefulness of the exercise and guidance in using it are on the lifeline page. This tool will help you look at “the gap” as author Dan Sullivan refers to your past. It is a excellent aid in forming the vision of your future and from there you can begin to set those long term and short term goals.
At the end of the exercise you will be encouraged to consider what will be your legacy as you leave this world. This point has caused serious consideration by past seminar participants and users of the lifeline.
Self confidence takes courage. Courage comes with stretching. Failure is a fact of life. Trying to avoid failure leads us to thoughts like “I’m just not good enough.” So we stop trying. We forget about self growth, personal development. We accept the way things are, the amount of money we make, or the educational level we accomplish.
It’s easy to take the first step in building self confidence and living a happier life than you may think. Begin with your communication skills. Once you have a starting point, the idea of self improvement is easier to accept. Almost everyone can improve their verbal communication skills.
You can then take it a step farther and get the free eBook on nonverbal communication skills that’s offered on this page. You have then a great start on shoring up your confidence level.
