“Action without Vision is a Nightmare.”
The hard truth is that if you don’t create your life, someone else will create it for you. Yes, sometimes s*#t happens that leads to experiences we didn’t plan for, and some of those experiences become defining moments in our lives. But, there are plenty of other moments that WE define and drive based on our mindset and the actions we take. Stop letting life happen to you and start making it happen for you.
Some tips on defining what you want:
1) Write a bucket list with 100 things you want to do before you die.
2) Define the lifestyle you want in every major area of your life (Career, Family, Relationships, Health, Spirituality, Recreation etc.).
3) Define your talents and your passion. Have an honest conversation about what your talents are and what they are not. Discover areas where you can apply those talents to meaningful work that inspires passion inside you.
4) Share these outcomes with everyone you know.
“Vision without Action is a Daydream.”
Too often, we’re all talk. It drives me nuts to hear someone say, “I’m gonna…I want to…One day I hope to…” What are you doing right now, in this moment, to take action to make those things happen? Each day, you’re either a day closer to your vision or you’re not. It’s your pick. Taking action on an idea is the only real way we discover whether or not the idea works. Spend less time talking, planning and deciding how you’re going to do something. Spend more time defining a clear vision and taking action that will help you learn and push you towards your outcome.
Nightmares keep you up at night. Daydreams waste your time. Define what you want , and start living the dreams that matter.
to wrap up my birthday week i wake up (after having a great dream about being a vampire) to another day of cloudy skies and rain. yesterday my neighbor was sunbathing on her deck and a week ago my deck was covered in snow. inconsistent weather drives me insane and bad weather makes me cry.
my bff always tells says “you shouldn’t let the weather drive your mood”. dude, it is sooo much easier to slap a smile on your face and when the sun’s shining in a clear blue sky. on my last quick trip to sunny california before my flight out i had an early breakfast along the beach. i noticed the big fat smiles on the faces of the happy, healthy people, running, biking and walking their dogs near by. even the dogs looked happier.
once a year i take a vaca to laguna beach, we stay at the surf and sand hotel and create some of my favorite memories. life seems perfect there. when it’s leaving time i declare i’m moving and stock up on over priced real estate ads.
when the weather here is bad i get mad at myself for not moving in with the palm trees but then i remind myself…
- that my precious grandparents live nearby and i love them more than a beach
- that my friends, family and loved ones who often drive me crazy but give life meaning are all also in a drives reach and
- that most of the talent team at Talent Revolution are all close by
while i haven’t given up on my dream to be a vampire living by the surf and sand. i’m putting it on hold for now. better weather’s coming and boating days at the lake and lunches in the sun at the greene are just around the corner. in the meantime i’m working on a plan to have my cake and eat it too.
