Envision Success

ENVISION: imagine as a future possibility

If you were to ask 10 people what success means, you would likely get 10 different answers. That’s because success is deeply personal and subject to change as we journey through life. Regardless of your age, it’s important to have your own definition of success to inspire and guide you. Without it, your life will be directed by other people’s vision of success. 

Give Yourself Permission to Create Your Own Definition of Success

To envision success is to tap into your imagination and create a mental picture of a future state. You can initiate the process by thinking about how you would like your life to be at future point in time (e.g., 1 year, 3 years, etc.). What have you accomplished? Who have you become? What have you gained? Where have you been? Who have you spent time with? How have you impacted others? Once you have a mental picture of success, get in touch with how it would feel to achieve your vision of success. Capture your thoughts and feelings in a notebook or journal.

You may want to consider creating a vision board/visual representation of your desired future state. Include words, images, and symbols that represent your vision and feelings of success. Keep your board where you can see it on a daily basis.

Pursue Your Passion

 

PowerPoint Presentation

Passion: a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

What do you have a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement about? Are you pursuing your passion? If not, why not?

In the busyness of life, it’s easy to operate on autopilot and not make time to pursue the things that we love, enjoy, and feel passionate about.

Passion comes from within. If you’re not sure what you are passionate about, create time to reflect on areas of interest or things that you enjoyed doing when you were younger. Start doing the things that you have identified to see if they still resonate with you. If you were interested in nature—start spending time in nature. If you were interested in certain causes—volunteer your time. If you enjoyed dancingstart dancing. If you enjoyed writingstart writing. If you enjoyed hiking—start hiking. You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect to pursue what you love. Once you are clear on your passion, pursue it and see where it leads you.

If you say you are passionate about something that you are not pursuing, explore what is holding you back. Don’t let fear keep you from pursuing what you love. Commit to taking action even if it’s only small steps. Over time, small steps can have a big effect.

Give yourself time and permission to pursue your passion.

Renew Your Faith

 

Faith Stone

I believe the journey of life is a personal journey of faith and process of empowerment.   

Simply stated, faith is our ability to look forward with positive expectancy. It is not something we find outside of ourselves, it is an inner resource that we awaken to and renew through our thoughts/beliefs, words, and actions. 

Faith empowers us to create our future—individually and collectively. It is deeply personal and influenced by many things—thoughts/beliefs, trust, and experiences.

Renewing your faith is an intentional and ongoing process. There is no right or wrong way to do it. I’ve made a few suggestions based on my own experience and what has helped me along the way.

  • Reset your mind—release/let go of thoughts and beliefs that limit you and replace them with thoughts and beliefs that enrich, expand, and empower you to create the kind of life and world that you desire.
  • Trust life as a process—the nature of life is change and transition for the purpose of growth and evolution. Every ending is a new beginning if you are willing to trust the process.
  • Stay open to possibility—there is more to life than what you can see. Create time and space in your day to prayerfully ask “What is possible for my life?”.
  • Choose your words wisely—words carry energy and power and shape your life.
  • Keep moving forward—if things don’t go as you planned, ask “What did I learn?”, “How did I grow?”. Use your lessons learned to help you keep moving forward. If you feel stuck, ask “What is the best thing I can do right now to move forward?” and then do it. 🙂

Align your thoughts, words, and actions

ZEN

Align: to change something so that it agrees with or matches something else.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

You can create any experience that you desire by aligning your thoughts, words, and actions. It’s a lot easier said than done, but truly transformative when put into practice.

Thoughts and beliefs are powerful—they create your reality (positively or negatively) each and every day. What you choose to focus on will magnify in your life.

This week, I invite you to identify a quality that you would like to magnify in your life and bring your thoughts, words, and actions into alignment with that quality. For example, if you want to experience a greater sense of peace in your life, think peaceful thoughts, speak peaceful words, and create a peaceful living and work environment.

Spend a few minutes in silence and let your heart be your guide in choosing a quality to magnify. Through this process, you will not only enrich your life, you will enrich the lives of others and the world (yes, the world!).
