When I start working with my Executive Coaching Clients, most are frustrated by the daily demands on their time and attention and disappointed by their inability to break free and make a significant difference in the lives of others through their careers. They’re all highly educated, highly effective and in very senior positions. They’ve realized their ambitions but not their aspirations. They feel trapped in the system with their wings clipped.
However what I found when I asked them what they’d truly like to create in the future, they each knew exactly what it is they’d like to see. They each had a Vision of the future that became clearer as they articulated their ideas and gave expression to their deepest desires and heartfelt aspirations.
I encourage you to Open the Door to your Vision of the Future.
First, write it down in a journal or have a conversation with a trusted colleague or your management on what they’d really like to SEE in the future if they fully realized their aspirations.
Secondly, encapsulate this into an Aspirational Purpose Statement that is visionary, distinctive, succinct and memorable.
Thirdly, repeat it often. When we’re buying property we’re often told it’s all about location, location, location. When we wish to set our mind on a specific intention, it’s all about repetition, repetition, repetition. We need to repeat our intention clearly and with genuine intent so that our mind and heart are fully engaged and committed to that intention.
Then you’ll be amazed at the opportunities that turn up that will help you to realize your purpose. The great universal mind and our own are co-creators of the future.
