Hey hey! Welcome to episode 197 of Life on Fire. Having coached over 2,000 people now I have found there is one critical component to creating their biggest vision and their most epic life on fire: clarity.
If you’ve ever felt stuck or felt like you had to fight for everything then today’s show is for you. When you have clarity and vision, everything in your life shifts. You are called into action, you have a fire in your belly to make things happen in a way you didn’t before. It is possible to be pulled by your vision, and not to push your way through life. Clarity makes that happen.
In this episode you’ll hear:
If you don’t have a vision for your life nothing great happens. Think about - all great, incredible leaders have had a vision that has called them into greatness. They didn’t just arrive there, they were called by something bigger than themselves. Each of us has that calling, and by taking the three steps outlined below you can find yours.
1. S is for Story.
With story think about what has happened in your life that has led to where you are today. What experiences, moments, events have happened that have shaped you? Think longer term then just the last year or two years.
I’ve coached over 2k people and I've walked many through this process. When I first say story people only think about the last year or two, but you want to go back throughout your entire life. What has happened to you in your life that has made you uniquely you? Go all the way back!
Revisit your entire life: take a piece of paper and write down the timeline of your life. You'll see the biggest challenges from your past. When you see them take note! Get excited - your biggest mess is your biggest message. On today’ show you’ll hear a real-life example of this from a client of mine, let his journey inspire and motivate you to do the same.
2. Stance: What do you stand for?
What is your stance in the world? What pisses you off? What do you want to change about the world? What movement are you creating?
And when you’re thinking about this think about it in terms of other people, in terms of your contribution and your legacy, and then answer the question what pisses you off! By finding out what bothers you you can find your movement and your passion for creating change.
This S is how you take your vision and make it a reality. You can't sit back and wish it to happen, that won’t work. Positive thinking and affirmations are important, but you have to get into tangible action. And when you have a vision for something bigger and greater in this world that will call you into action and help you create your strategy. Perhaps it’s writing books, or speaking at conferences, or hosting your own events, or something else. All of these are strategies you can use to bring your message into the world.
If the 3 S’s speak to you and you want to map them out for yourself join our Life Vision Challenge. You’ll be joining other people on the same quest as you are, and you’ll get support, accountability and partnership!
