Don't Block Your Big Vision!

by Dioni Morales, Director of Stylist Services

In the spirit of continuing the topic of Vision that I talked about on my last blog three weeks ago (in which I mentioned what vision is, how to have a clear vision, and what that will mean for our future), today I will touch on three reasons we may be blocked from having clear vision:

1. Limiting Beliefs: This is your truth versus the real truth.
  • Failure to Launch: Most times our beliefs are so limited that it won't allow us to even give it a try.
  • 90% of the time it is your limiting beliefs that hold you back.
  • The voice of others often reinforces our limiting beliefs.  We put too much emphasis on what others say and/or think.
  • We need to identify our limiting beliefs so that they lose their power. Sit down today and write at least three limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
  • Learn to remove them.
2. Identify your Why's: "No one can drive looking in the rearview mirror." Your "why's"  are what will push you forward.
  • It's what you care most deeply about.
  • Don't limit yourself by what you think is possible.
  • Focus on where you want to go.
  • Must be bigger than yourself.
  • Will compel you to take on challenges that will stretch you as much as they inspire you.
  • When you are powered by a clear vision, there is little you cannot do.
3. Lack of Focus: When you focus on what you want, everything else falls away. When you are focused on too many things at the same time, it's like your brain has too many tabs open.  
  • Lack of focus is a symptom of your limiting beliefs and unclear "why's".
  • Like versus needs - learn how to differentiate.
  • Distractions and diversions - there is no time for these at the moment.
  • Waste of time and energy - you need to learn where to put your time and energy.
  • Moving towards consistent activities - when you are focused you know what to do and when to do it.
Take the time today to write down three of the things that you feel that you're focusing on daily.  This will help you see what needs to change. When your focus is clear it will improve your influence, and impact your team and your income.

This time I'm asking you to do some homework, because it will help you to define your Vision. It will help you eliminate anything that might be making your Vision blurry.  After all, everyone wants to follow someone who knows exactly where they are going. So be a leader.  Do your homework. Define your Vision, and where you want your Vessel business to take you in your life.

And then help those on your team do the same.
