A vision is built deep down in the heart to form a bridge between your present reality and your future self. Therefore it is so important to uplift yourself and better yourself by traversing life with a vision.
All it takes is a thought in your mind and it’s possible to work towards and create what you once thought was non-existent in your life. Visioning is thus a powerful tool to truly make real results by giving us hope, courage and the perseverance in difficult situations. 2016 is coming to an end so get ready to make 2017 an awesome year. Spread your wings and get ready to fly.
Here are 11 ways a vision will help your transformation:
1. Vision from the heart, create with the mind
The best way to move forward in life is to be clear and honest with yourself about what you want. The beginning starts with constructing the vision; a statement from the heart, which has to be exciting and compelling enough to push and transform you. The creative processes happen in the mind so try your best to stretch your imagination and freedom; see, feel, smell, draw and write. Spend dedicated time on specificity by research and imprinting your values into every single little detail. The law of attraction: believe something in your mind and in your heart, be vocal with it and pursue it. You can achieve it.
2. A guide to the future
Where there’s no vision there’s no direction. Some go one way and others will go another, this is life. Where do you want to go? Carrying this reminder with goals, whether they are set for day, month, year or even a decade, will give you a sense of where you are going. Approaching your goals with specificity and a set destination from the outset allows you to be more targeted and driven. It will boil down to such a profound technique, experimenting little by little so you can dictate what’s next; a mind process, learning to create and connecting the dots. Doors of opportunity will open when you venture out from your comfort zone.
“I have an idea of who I want to be, I have a vision of my own success.” – Wiz Khalifa
3. It inspires action
What can I do today to make me closer to my goal? The value of an idea or vision is therefore most certainly through the will to act. When real and well thought out steps are taken, it creates this resounding energy of get up and go, pulling in resources, ideas and people as opposed to being afraid. However when things don’t fall through, you develop resilience and appreciate that you did your best. It’s not over until I win. How will you know if you don’t try? Remember the more you hustle the luckier you get.
4. Create your own world and take control
Traditional norms of thinking are graduation, job, work, have a family, and retirement. Our mindset has been moulded to this way. Though there is nothing wrong with this but perhaps this “generalisation” is what keeps us caged up. Break the shackles because true happiness is unlocked when you begin to picture your own world. Inject life by thinking outside the box, infuse your own style allowing you to take order and control.
5. Poetry in Motion
Vision is life’s journey to your desired output; the best views are from the hardest of climbs. Your vision is a stylized, evocative form of twists and turns that is intended to provide insight, purpose and impact every day that converges into your shining moment. This is poetry in motion. Treat every day like the sun rise, smile, embrace the challenges, and walk and talk gracefully with confidence. When the past moments try to blur your vision, show it you’re the reason to let it remain in the past.
“Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.” – Salvador Dali
6. Ability to make changes
Repetitive affirmations of I can and I will, make the troublesome days easier to handle. The problem that kills most people’s hunger is the attachment to other people’s opinions of us, being judged by your next move. It introduces a story of them and not me. Through this process we lose sight of our own vision and it becomes much harder to make progress we wish to see. A vision awakens the senses, pulls you away from distractions and allows you to discover the changes you need to make deep down in order to raise yourself. This could even be views that you held, personal attitudes and behaviour. Do you see how deep the rabbit hole goes?
7. Chase your hero
Look into the mirror and envision a better version of yourself in the next 5 to 10 years. Compete, place bets on yourself, and dare to be great. Watch this 2014 Oscar acceptance speech by Matthew McConaughey and skip to 3:26 where he explains about chasing your hero.
8. Prevent mistakes from happening
A vision is a target and allows you take a calculated assessment and approach in achieving it. I felt more out of harm’s way, alert, driven, vigilant and self-aware by shifting the mindset on what can go right instead of wrong. Doing that all the time would allow things to gradually fall into place.
9. Freedom and self-belief
As your vision slowly becomes a reality the mind has grown and expanded by a vast amount. “A mind that is stretched by new experiences never goes back to its old dimensions”. A vision helps you to evolve by strengthening your self-belief and to be able to outlast the bad moments. Tough times don’t last, tough people do.
10. You can win big
One of the most important lessons I’ve learnt about vision is that it encourages me not to quit. I honestly don’t believe in losing or losers, I believing in learning and winning; we are all winners. This mindset can make you win big so don’t be afraid of raising the bar.
11. You will lead and influence others
I believe that the true purpose of success is to leave inspirational moments for others to look up to. You’ll know you’ve transformed when those wounds heal up, the worries and fears become meaningless. People will connect to you and become attracted towards you. It is truly an amazing feeling when you can act as the medium to which they seek help and guidance. Let them see your vision; establish your legacy and become a symbol of hope.

The Surprising Secret About Growth and Change
Innovation and change drive business growth, but there’s one piece about growth and change that business owners and entrepreneurs often overlook. It’s not the most fun or glamorous piece, but if you recognize and accept it, the payoff is huge. This is particularly crucial for self-employed business owners when there’s little to no separation between yourself and your business. When your level of success equates to how much you have personally developed. I call it Growth Jet Lag, and when you know how to navigate it, you set yourself up for lasting success. (more…)
Practicing Self-Devotion: 3 Ways Towards a More Mindful and Compassionate You
I can still hear the voices of my older relatives and my elementary school teachers telling me “be disciplined”, “keep at it”, to give time and energy towards what we want. As a young, impressionable child, I believed all those things because well, they made sense. They worked. And honestly, I felt like it’s the only way to flourish. (more…)
Identifying Your Emotions is the Key to Exponential Happiness
In the weeks and months following the heinous terror attacks of September 11, millions of Americans decreased their domestic air travel. As domestic flying decreased, car travel increased where a study found that people opted to drive longer distances rather than fly. Not taking into account 9/11, there were 331 airplane crash fatalities in the U.S from 1751 crash events. What’s interesting is there were 42,000 driving-related deaths in that same year. The number of deaths in air travel and road travel remained relatively consistent in subsequent years. (more…)
4 Life Changing Lessons I Learned by Starting a Podcast
I had, and still have, a message I want to share with those that will listen. Heck, I am even willing to share it to those that are less than willing to listen. Therefore, I decided to start a podcast. A podcast focused on those that feel like the odds are stacked against them when it comes to venturing into those entrepreneurial waters. Those that have an inner belief that they can do it, but perhaps the people around them are less than enthusiastic about this new journey.
Nonetheless, these Dark Horses, as I call them, buck the odds and run their own race to reach their own dreams and achieve their own goals. Little did I know that as I launched The Dark Horse Entrepreneur podcast, on a mission to teach others the lessons I have learned in business and in life, that I would be in turn learning even more lessons because of stepping out into the podcast arena.
