“If you keep a clear vision for your future, it will pull you like a magnet through your toughest times.”
Hi lovely Motivation Seekers, how are you? Hope you enjoyed last week’s Motivator and managed to work on improving your resilience. I had some really good feedback from this, so think it resonated with a few of you.
I am continuing with the theme of success in business, though the things I am covering apply also to those who have careers and want success in that or even for those wanting success in relationships. The same principles apply and start everytime with your thoughts. As I have said so many times before, it all starts with a thought, which becomes an action which becomes the result you achieve. Start with empowering thoughts, get transformative results!
This week I wanted to talk specifically about creating a vision, having a clear view of where you want to get to, this is by far the number one thing that most successful business people have in common. They know what they want, they share that with their team and motivate them to share the vision and all face in the same direction to achieve it. Without that, there is no focus or larger purpose that helps keep you motivated.
It sounds so simple to create a clear vision of what we want, however in our modern lives, we have so many options and choices available to us, it can be hard to zoom in on what is truly important to us. Finding that is the first step in setting your vision. Once you have done that, you will know what your passion and purpose is and can also get clear on your values.

An extra bonus is that decision making becomes much easier when you are clear on all this. If you need to make a decision and you’re not sure about the direction to take, refer to your vision which will always give you the answer.
When we started our business, the plan was for it to be a part-time business to enable my husband to be available for the kids while I worked full-time. The business took off and the hours became huge. We were happy it was a successful business but not so happy that we had no time for our kids. That is the one thing I regret most of all about that time. If we had a clear vision of running a life-style business that was flexible and had time for family, we probably wouldn’t have done the things we did. Hindsight’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it?
The great thing about this now, is that I can help other business owners avoid making the same mistakes. I love helping to save marriages and families through making family businesses run efficiently! Even better, I have some great news to share with you about the coaching that I do. I have been accredited by NZTE to provide a 12 month Business Growth Coaching Course. This means that NZTE will provide funding to cover 50% of the course, which means great savings for you.
