Sometimes we need to do little, just reflect.
I would invite you to make today such a day.
Find a comfortable place to sit down, a chair, the couch or even the floor.
Feel your body grounded in the seat from your feet all the way up your legs, spine and to the top of your head. Breathe and notice the sensations in your body as you continue to breathe - and reflect on the following questions:
- What are your dreams for the next 3 years? Please do not get practical here, this is a space of allowing your mind to create the most compelling vision for you.
- What's there?
- What do you see, sense and notice?
Choose one area of your vision that speaks to you the most e.g. your romantic relationship, business, health or finances.
- Who are you being in this area of your life? Where are you?
Perhaps in a new office surrounded by a team of employees, in a brand new beautiful home surrounded by loved ones or on a beach with your spouse.
- What's different for you?
Lastly, what will you do to get one step closer to your vision?
Although we do not have the power to foresee every bump and obstacle ahead, I believe that by creating a vision we train our minds in a way that strengthens and prepares us for the challenges we might meet on the journey to living our vision.
I can attest to the fact that the road can be bumpy, but those challenges are - in a way - part of the vision as you push through them and in the end you come out stronger, more resilient and much wiser.
You might say "but I don't know what my vision is"... In that case I will 'push back' and say that I believe you do.
One of the tenets in Co-active coaching is that all people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole. The challenge lies in mobilizing whatever courage it takes to put these natural resources to work.
You have everything required to make your vision a reality.
