140. Value your Vision

We are officially one-third of the way through the year, how are your goals coming along? Our Mastermind in March was about finishing quarter one strong, refocusing on what you’ve set out to achieve and

and reflecting on what you have achieved so far this year. Then our Mastermind in April was focusing on setting ourselves up for success in quarter two. You can catch the replay on our website under Community - Watch the Videos.


Being a Glowgetter and Goalgetter this quarter requires the five R’s for success - Reset, Reflect, Recharge, Refuel, and Reignite. We discussed these five points in our April Masterclass to help break down your goals and give you your time back. It was a reminder for our community to work towards Quarterly Goals, create a Monthly Must Do list, Celebrate the Weekly Wins, and have Daily Do’s in place to help you achieve your goals.


Recharging and Refuelling were discussed to give a gentle reminder to ourselves, sharing the importance of ensuring you have ME TIME on your calendar. Time for your health and fitness, and time for your wellbeing. We work in the wellbeing industry and it’s so easy to put ourselves last, but remember ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’. So make sure you create time in your calendar to recharge your energy levels and refuel your body so you can continue to put your BEST self forward for yourself, your family, your friends and your team.

If you haven't already, let's work on your vision… here are five questions we ask ourselves when we are designing our destiny:


💫 What would your ideal life look like?

💫 Why and What do you want to achieve?

💫 Who do you need to be to achieve these goals?

💫 Where are you now, and where do you want to be?

💫 When are you going to achieve these goals?


It’s time to dream your biggest, most grand version of your life… and write it down.


Only 3% of the population set goals. Only 1% write them down. According to a study by Dr. Gail Matthew’s at Dominican University states, “If you write down your goals, you are 42% more likely to achieve them.”

Working on your vision involves setting clear goals and taking action to make your vision a reality. Here are some steps to help you work on your vision:


1. Define your vision:


Clearly articulate what your vision is and what you want to achieve in the long term. Sounds easy but the reality can be far more difficult to really define what we want in life. Take the time to ponder…


Ask yourself the five questions listed above and listen to your inner voice, it’s not always easy to dive deep and listen to what you really want your future life to look like and what you’d like to achieve.


It’s easy to plod along and just get by, but will that really make you happy, will that really make you feel like you’ve achieved something. If the answer is yes, that’s great… you can stop reading. If you’re ready for more, for a bigger plan, to shatter glass ceilings and to make your dreams a reality, then keep reading.


Make a Vision Board - your biggest vision for yourself - some of our community cut and paste from magazines like an arts and craft project - words, images etc. Others create a board on Pinterest and some even just create a mind map of words or draw images that they envision for their future. Do what suits you, but put yourself in the picture. Visualize whatever it is you want - your dream car, dream home, business, love life, family life… your dream life. Put yourself in the picture, yes literally on the vision board so that you envision yourself doing those things.


You can design your destiny, you just need to be honest with yourself and start today!

This is me, in real life… not photoshopped. I share this because travel is something on my vision board and by putting yourself in the picture with what you want to achieve aids the neuroscience of what is possible.


Neuroscientist Dr. Tara Swart explains: “Looking at images on a vision board primes the brains to grasp opportunities that may otherwise go unnoticed. That’s because the brain has a process called ‘value - tagging’ which imprints important things onto your subconscious and filters out unnecessary information. The brain assigns a higher ‘value’ to images than written words on a to do list, and the more you look at those images, the more those images move up in importance.”

2. Set specific goals:


Break down your vision into smaller, achievable goals that can help you move closer to your ultimate vision. Big plans often take baby steps to achieve, think of going away on holiday for example - you know you’re going to arrive at the destination at a specific time but the journey can take many routes. Setting specific goals along the road map to your success helps you to achieve and stay accountable to the steps along the route.


3. Create a plan:


Develop a detailed plan outlining the steps you need to take to reach your goals. What does your road map look like to achieving these goals? What do you need to do? What do you need to put in place? What action to you need to take? What do you need to learn or develop for your future to come to fruition? Create a time line of events and actions so that you have a plan in place to work towards your goals. This includes putting a time block on your calendar to achieve your goals too.


I use themed days and times to help work on my goals and reach my targets. For example, I would like to write a book this year, so I blocked out a few days in quarter one for a writing retreat. I’m two - thirds of the way through the book and have a writing retreat booked for quarter two to finish my book and take it to the next stage to be published. If I hadn’t put the writing block on my calendar that would not have created the time or space to work on that goal. I do that for each item on my list - finances, social media content, blogging, podcasts… the list goes on, but you get my point - create a plan and time block to achieve your goals.


4. Take action:


Start taking action towards your goals, even if it's small steps each day. Consistent progress is key. I’m going to keep this point simple… start today!


5. Stay focused:


Keep your vision in mind and stay focused on your goals, even when faced with challenges or distractions. The ‘Tetris Effect’ named after the 1980’s game (yes I played this in my childhood) can help to boost the mental activity towards vision casting. It suggests that by looking at your vision board before you go to sleep, the images will imprint even further and may even feature in your dreams and thoughts. By repeating this process it’s like flexing a muscle that creates physical strength. Your vision board will become a reality. Be a crystal clear as you can about your vision.


6. Seek support:


Surround yourself with people who believe in your vision and can support you along the way. If you’re not sure who you need in your network, seek advice. Look at your business like a sport - professional and amateur athletes all have coaches at different levels, but they have the same goal to help the athlete become a better version of themselves. Being a business mentor is very similar, it helps others boost their business acumen. Gain further skills to achieve their goals and develop the knowledge needed to get to the next level or chapter of their careers.


7. Review and adapt:


Regularly review your progress, adjust your plan as needed, and stay flexible to changes that may arise. We are always evolving and part of growing, learning and developing is to adapt and be open to course correction as required.


One way that I use to review my vision board is to anchor it through a meditation that enables me to visualize that outcome that I’m looking to achieve. I close my eyes…. I visualize my goal - what does is feel like, what does it smell like, what does it sound like, what do you see when you achieve that goal? By revisiting my goals and reviewing this meditation it enables me to refocus but also to adapt if the outcome has evolved.


For example if you’re trying to achieve a monetary amount in your business you might start at six figures, that may then progress to seven… onto eight etc. Each time your goal evolves so does your timeline and tasks to ensure it comes to fruition.


Remember, working on your vision is a journey that requires dedication, perseverance, and belief in yourself. Keep moving forward and stay committed to turning your vision into reality. It will take dedication and perseverance to get through the journey, your grit and determination to achieving your success will help you to keep moving forward. You got this!
