Getting Clear on Your Business and Life Goals

If there’s one thing that keeps people stuck, it’s a lack of clarity.

You know you want to quit your soul-sucking day job in favor of the freedom of self-employment, but you aren’t clear on the steps to take. You want to take an exotic vacation, but you aren’t sure where to go – or how to make it happen. You want to grow your business, but aren’t even sure what that means.

The truth is, with ambiguous “goals” such as these, in five or ten years, you’ll still be stuck right where you’re at today.

But with a little clarity, you can achieve any goal you can conceive – and even some you cannot yet dream of. And the first step is to simply visualize what you want.

How Vision Boards Work

A vision board is a planning tool that allows you to unleash your creativity and daydream in a tangible format. By collecting images that represent your biggest goals and keeping them within sight, you’ll be better able to focus on the next steps to take to reach them.

Not only that, but vision boards can serve to keep you inspired when boredom strikes (as it inevitably will), and remind you of why you’re working so hard when all you want to do is take a nap.

How to Make a Vision Board

Creating a vision board is easy – and fun! You can create yours with paper and other art materials, or digitally using one of many online apps, Pinterest, or even Microsoft OneNote or Evernote.

While digital boards are definitely more portable, physical boards are often more inspiring. There’s just something about engaging all your senses that makes a tangible vision board more effective.

To create your board, start by collecting images that represent your biggest goals and dreams. Photos from a favorite family vacation, ads for an expensive dress you want to buy, a playbill for a Broadway show you want to see, or even a dollar figure representing your desired bank account balance are all good ways to visualize your goals. Add them to your new vision board.

Next, be sure to include phrases and quotes that inspire you and keep you going even when things get tough. Sometimes a few words of wisdom from someone you admire is all it takes to get you back on track after a rough spot.

Finally, remember this: your vision board is a living document. Your dreams and goals will change. Some you will achieve and remove from your board to make room for bigger and better dreams. Some you will decide don’t matter so much anymore, and you’ll trade them for some others.

It’s your vision, and it’s completely up to you what dreams you choose to follow – just be sure that you do follow them!

The Most Fun You’ll Ever Have in Your Office

I admit it. I’m in love with my vision board.

It’s a beautiful, colorful daydream brought to life, and when I’m working on it, I get lost in my dreams and time slips away. But don’t make the mistake of thinking whiling away an afternoon with my vision board is unproductive.

Quite the contrary. Spending a couple of hours planning my future with a vision board leaves me feeling inspired and ready to take action. After all, the harder I work, the closer I am to seeing those dreams become a reality.

If you’ve heard of vision boards but haven’t tried your hand at creating one, what’s holding you back? Some people – especially those right-brained analytical types – find the very idea of creative goal-setting to be so overwhelming they simply don’t know where to begin.

For others, it’s the thought of collecting all the pieces that turns them off.

For both, though, the answer is simple. Begin with what you have on hand. There are no “rules” when it comes to creating a vision board.

Books & Magazines

We all have that stack of magazines we keep meaning to toss. Now you can put them to good use building your vision board.

Flip through them and clip pictures that inspire you, such as vacation spots you’d like to visit, homes you’d love to live in, museums you want to explore. Don’t be picky or too selective. You don’t have to use all the images you clip, so for now, just cut out anything that captures your imagination.

In fact, the images you collect don’t have to be photos at all. Inspiring words, beautiful typography, even attention-grabbing ads can all make for an inspiring vision board.

Colored Pens & Markers

Don’t be afraid to let your creative side show with some hand lettering or doodling on your vision board. Quotes you love, special dates you want to commemorate, and even the names of people you admire can all find a home on your vision board.

Stickers, Ribbons & Art Supplies

If you have kids, chances are you have plenty of craft supplies that will make great embellishments for your board.

Stickers are more than just quirky accessories. Use them to mark the most important items on your board, the ones you want to work toward next.

Ribbons keep related ideas together, and mementos such as ticket stubs or receipts can serve as reminders of the life you want to live.

Remember, above all else, your vision board is your own. Design a board that inspires you and lights you up every time you look at it, and it will work its magic on your life.

5 Ways to Use a Vision Board

You’re probably familiar with using a vision board as a tool for keeping your dreams and goals in mind. But did you know that you can use a vision board in a variety of ways, depending on your needs?

In fact, you might even want to have more than one vision board, to keep your dreams for the various areas of your life and business clear.

Business Planning

This vision board is where you’ll keep track of why and how you do what you do. You started your business for a reason – your “why.” But somewhere along the way, many of us lose sight of this goal.

A business planning vision board can help keep us on track.

On it, you’ll keep images that represent your ideal business, such as working from the beach, speaking in front of a large crowd, achieving bestseller status with your latest book, or even a big fancy office if that’s your thing.

Life Goals

Where do you want to be in five, ten, or twenty years? That’s not just a question from a bad job interview; it’s a critical consideration for anyone who wants to live a life of purpose and meaning, and a vision board is the perfect tool for staying on track.

This vision board – like all of them – is in a constant state of change. As your life goals change and grow, so will your vision board. Maybe you no longer want to live in Paris. That’s ok. Replace the city of lights with a relaxing mountaintop retreat if that’s your thing.

But do keep your life goals vision board updated and refer to it each time you have to make a major decision. It will help clarify the direction you need to take to achieve your life’s dreams.

Vacation Planning

Heading off on an epic vacation with the family? Don’t leave your journey to chance. Capture all your “must see” destinations on a vision board so you don’t miss anything.

Even better, invite your kids and spouse to join you, and create a fun planning tool the entire family can use. The kids will be excited about your trip, and you’ll be sure everyone gets to see and do everything they hoped for.

By planning ahead, you’ll ensure everyone has the epic vacation of their dreams.

Home Buying

Pinterest has built an entire business around what amounts to a digital vision board – much of it devoted to home décor. If you’re in the market for a new home, or simply remodeling the one you have, then a vision board is a great way to organize your plans.

Snip photos of the style of home you love, color combos to try, landscaping ideas, and anything else that strikes your fancy. Keeping your home-buying vision board close at hand will save you time in your search by reminding you exactly what you’re looking for.

Client Attracting

Every business has an ideal client, but this seemingly simple thing can be incredibly difficult to define. A vision board will help.

Is your client male or female? Young or old? Successful or not? Does he or she have kids or a home or a business? Is she confident or timid? Athletic or overweight?

Create a collection of images that represent your ideal client and refer to it each time you are tempted (as we all are) to sign a client who is less than ideal.

What’s Really Holding You Back?

It’s a rare business owner who – at some point – doesn’t feel stuck. Either you begin to experience burnout, or you aren’t reaching your goals and can’t seem to get past the income plateau you’ve found yourself on.

It’s a normal part of being in business, but staying there isn’t.

Successful small business owners figure out how to overcome the hurdles and “overwhelm” and continue to grow their business. And the first step is to determine what exactly is holding you back.

Lack of Clarity

When you don’t really know what it is you want from your business, you’re experiencing a lack of clarity. Maybe you aren’t clear on who you’re meant to serve, or can’t quite envision your product funnel. Or maybe you can’t even picture your epic training course in its entirety.

These are all symptoms of a lack of clarity, and they can stop a promising business in its tracks.

If you’re suffering from a lack of clarity, take a step back and do some brainstorming (or brain dumping) to get everything out in the daylight where you can see it. This alone can help you get clear on what your next step is.

Lack of Focus

If you’re clear on your goals but you’re having trouble moving forward consistently, then a lack of focus might be your trouble. You head to your office each morning with purpose, but by lunch it’s clear you haven’t accomplished anything you set out to do.

You’re not a bad person, or even a poor business owner. You just have trouble focusing on the next step that needs to happen to make your dreams come true.

Try this: With your end goal in mind, brainstorm the next physical action you need to take to achieve it. So if your goal is to build a 4-week e-course, then your next step might be to poll your mailing list about what they need/want from you.

No Excitement

Bored? Lost interest in that business you once loved? This is, unfortunately, pretty common among solo-preneurs. That’s why we see so many of them jumping from business to business, never spending enough time in any one endeavor to see it through to success.

Staying excited about your business starts with having a dream that keeps you going even when you’re faced with the day-to-day drudgery that every small business owner encounters.

Not everything is fun when you’re running a business, but if you keep your “why” in mind, it can help you get past the dull spots.

Want to know how to easily fix all these issues (and more)?

It’s a simple trick that the world’s most successful entrepreneurs have been using for decades: vision boards. These fun and colorful tools are often just what you need to clarify your dreams, work out your next steps, and stay excited about your business.

Vision boards can be as simple as a few images clipped from a magazine and pinned to a corkboard, or as complex as a framed poster with hand-lettered quotes and personal inspiration.

The choice is yours. It’s completely personal, super fun, and best of all, it works.

Give it a try next time you’re feeling stuck in your business!

Business Planning is Fun Again

When you think of a business plan, you probably think of pages of text and graphs and boring stats and numbers… you know, the kind of thing you’d nervously push across the desk to a bank officer in hopes of securing a loan.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of anything I like less than to have to piece together that kind of stiff, formal business plan. Luckily, I have better tools – and so do you!

The Business Plan That Isn’t

What if you could plan your business with fun, colorful photos and inspirational quotes and phrases instead? What would that do for your daily motivation?

Well that’s exactly what a vision board will do for you. By collecting images that represent your dreams and aspirations, you’ll have a constant reminder of where it is you’re going, and even why you started your business in the first place.

Maybe you want to spend more time with your kids as they’re growing up, or have enough money to finally take that vacation to Europe. What about that house in the country you’ve always dreamed of owning, or the sporty little red car that’s been calling your name?

None of these things will find a place in a traditional business plan, but they’re perfect for your vision board. More importantly, they’re critical to your long-term success.

Without your dreams, it’s nearly impossible to remain focused and on track when it comes to business growth, but with these reminders, it’s easy!

Why Vision Boards Work

Does all this feel pretty airy-fairy to you? You’re not alone. Lots of us were raised to believe that business has to be all about numbers and stats, and that there is no room for fun when it comes to making money.

I completely disagree!

In fact, some of the most successful people in the world routinely use vision boards to help clarify their dreams and keep their goals front of mind… and that’s precisely why vision boards work so well. They allow you to easily see exactly what it is you’re working toward, whether it’s a shiny new car or a big, beautiful home, or an exotic vacation.

By keeping visual reminders within sight, you’re constantly aware of your “why,” and that’s a powerful motivator, no matter what you’re working on.

Of course, no banker is going to accept your vision board as proof of viability and give you a loan based on it. But when it comes to clarifying your dreams, pinpointing your real goals, and getting excited about your business again, you just can’t beat a personal, colorful vision board.

Give it a try. You might just surprise yourself!

Why You May Be Your Own Worst Enemy When It Comes to Success

by Susie J. Briscoe

Have you ever considered that you may be sabotaging your own success? Whether it’s making a success of your own business, losing weight, or getting a college degree, you may be blind to the fact that you’re your own worst enemy.

There are many ways we sabotage personal progress. For example, if we need or want to lose weight, and load up the refrigerator with junk food like ice cream and pizza, we’re setting ourselves up for failure.

One way you may be sabotaging your business success is procrastination. Putting things off until the last minute can cause you to do the job in a shabby way so that it’s not as good as you could have made it had you put more time into it.

Saying yes too much or allowing interruptions when you should be working can also sabotage your success. In business, you have to develop boundaries that make it more possible for you to do your job and gain ultimate success.

Making decisions without the proper amount of research and thought can also cause failure. Learning how to make effective decisions involves evaluating your options and correctly assessing how you’re going to benefit or take a risk with each endeavor.

Are you a good communicator? Communicating with others effectively and respectfully can help to build solid business relationships which can help you go far. You may want to ask someone close to you about the effectiveness of your communication style and change things as needed.

You need others to help you succeed. No man is an island, and if you think that just because you’re on the Internet you’re going to succeed without others, think again. Affiliates, followers on your list, and others will help you with your quest to success. Community is a crucial part of success.

Take time for yourself. If you’re going to be the boss, you should keep yourself in good health by taking time to exercise, eat the proper diet, and get the mental clarity you need to make decisions for your business that are going to last a lifetime.

How We Limit Ourselves: Are You afraid of Charging What You’re Worth?

How childhood experiences can still linger long into adulthood, and catch us unawares… see if you relate to this and discover how you can change.

For years I felt awkward about charging clients for the help I was giving. For me, coaching is something I’ve done seemingly all my adult life without even realising that I was, in fact, coaching. It was a happy accident that I became aware that this was actually a profession and that I could make a good living by doing what I love.

There was, however, still a nagging fear that I was enjoying myself too much and that it wasn’t really like work – and I was reminded of an incident from childhood which was still impacting on me even as late as my 50’s.

I was on a training call with Linda, my wonderful US ezine mentor, and, as a result of one of our calls, I offer following:

Linda shared, with straightforward honesty, about her son going off to academy and the feelings this brought up for her. I related to this very easily, as well as to the list of fears that swirled around the fear this had provoked within her.

A couple of the fears stood out more for me:

  • that what I say has no value for others
  • that I may appear boastful and thinking I know it all

and, the big one for me…

  • charging for what I do!

I realised some years ago that this stems from a childhood incident…

I would have been about 4-years old and living next door to a bombed site in dreary and grey 1951 London (after the war everything was drab – I simply cannot remember colour at this time at all). My parents had a shop and an elderly lady used to come in regularly.

Her name was Daisy and she always had her black mongrel with her on a lead. This particular time she was shopping and as the evening was already enjoying the gloaming light of autumn, I helped her, merrily chatting as we made our way across the bomb-site to get to her mews house, carrying her shopping for her.

She gave me a shiny sixpence and I was thrilled to bits and happily came home to show my parents, only to be given an absolute roasting for accepting money.

The message? I should always help people freely and never think of being paid for what I do; and, to make matters worse for a shy child, I had to go back across the bomb site and return the sixpence to her… feeling very embarrassed and crushed.

It was an absolute eye-opener for me to recognise where this fear of charging stemmed from, but such a release to identify it.

I hope this will stimulate your own thinking… is this ringing any bells for you? How are you limiting yourself?

Let me know how this triggered memories for you and what you are now able to do with them as a result of identifying where the original fear came from.

And, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to explore this issue further.

How to Motivate Yourself Forever

Just as willpower is an essential factor in achieving success, at some point in time, discouragement and lack of motivation may hinder you from reaching your objective. And it is up to you – and you alone – to devise techniques that will help you keep that drive within afire.

It is helpful to have visual goals. Whatsoever it is you are working towards, make it visual. It may be something material like a car, or a vacation you have been looking forward to for the longest time.

Take or cut out a picture of it and post it in a conspicuous place at work or at home where you can see it often. So that when you feel discouraged, this will remind you of your goal and will help you keep your spotlight.

Make a contract with yourself. According to motivational research, people who write down to-do-lists are far more triumphant in achieving their intended goals than those people who just keep mental lists instead.

Putting something in writing somehow makes it more powerful, psychologically speaking. This may also be the basis why most cultures have such a high regard in honoring contracts.

In the contract, you may also include a certain reward that you will give yourself once you have accomplished the task. After all, everyone likes to be rewarded for completing a good job. Even a simple pat on the back, “good job”, or “thank you” may do the trick to give the person the additional push to carry on, but unfortunately, these may not always be readily available. Considering that these are also essential in keeping yourself motivated, you must learn to find a way to get that encouragement on your own through pleasing yourself.

Abusive people lower your self-esteem and bring you down. Get these negative people out of your life. Surround yourself with positive people. Imitate their example. Smile amply and think happy thoughts.

These will give you a brighter outlook and let you see a clearer picture of what you really want, as well as a fresh mind to know what steps to take to get there.

Rather than wait for things to happen, try to be proactive and make things happen. Inactivity idles the brain and stagnates your potential to reach your goals.

Read inspirational books and literature. These will help you improve your attitude and heal your mind. A book of success stories also proves to be encouraging. You will not only learn from the experiences of others and derive confidence boosting insights from them, but the story will be instrumental in motivating you to go for your goal and move ahead with your plans. If this still seems to falter, get training or education.

Oftentimes, not knowing how or where to start is frustrating. Knowledge is power. Having a clear understanding of how and where to start is empowering and it will provide the extra drive needed to hit the mark you are aiming at and follow it through.

Have you implemented all these tips and tricks to attain self-motivation, but still you seem to feel you are lacking that much needed drive? There is one last thing that you must try.

Whatever it is that you have been meaning to do, or wanting to achieve, JUST DO IT! Keep on aiming high and go for it! Actually getting your hands dirty best solves the problem of motivation. By “forcing” yourself to just do it, your momentum will pick up gradually as you go along and before you know it you have finished the task or have finally achieved your goal.

Divide and conquer is the key. Break down the apparently unattainable activity to small, doable steps. Not only does it become less overwhelming, but seeing the “in the meantime” results will further your confidence that it can, indeed, be done.

Lack of motivation happens to us all, but if you do not encourage yourself to accept opportunities and be challenged, no one else will. It is most important to keep your eye on the goal and find ways to keep going… and in no time, you shall reap its benefits.

And, if at the beginning, you were just doing it for the material reward, you will also learn to realize the fulfillment!

Your Most Important Goal

Do you know what the most important kind of goal is for your life?

We all have goals that we set and we know the importance of goal setting. And it’s one of those topics that gets beaten to death and a lot of us don’t want to hear about goal setting anymore.

We’re sick and tired of goal setting. But we know they’re necessary as well, and that’s why we always come back to them.

You do. I do. We all do goal setting at one level or another. Maybe you just do it mentally and you think about them from time to time. Other people are like me; I’m very, very strict about my goals.  I’m always writing them down and refining them.

But there are different kinds, and this is a most critical aspect. 

There is a type of goal where you define what you want to do; there is a type of goal where you define what you want to have; and there’s also a kind of goal where you define who you want to be – the kind of person you want to be.

It’s the third one – the goals you set on the type of person you want to be – that are the most pivotal, most important, and most influential in your life.

Your material wants (or even bigger wants than that), the things you would like to acquire, the things you would like to eventually achieve in your life?  Some you’ll hit and some you won’t. Some will take longer than planned. Some you may get in less time than you planned. They’re going to be all over the map.

As an example, you may be at a certain financial position right now. Let’s say you’re earning $50,000 a year and you want to take that to $100,000. There are a number of different ways you could do that. You could set a goal to do that within the next year, the next six months, or the next three years, and you go after it. You may or may not hit the goal, and you may or may not try as hard as you can – although the whole point of goal setting is you do try and you go for it.

But this is a measurable, specific thing that you’re shooting for and you may or may not get there.

There are all kinds of circumstances and things that could come up that could prevent it from happening.

But think about the type of goal where you decide who you want to be, and the exercise of writing down your goals on a daily basis and reviewing them. Sure, you can have a plan that says I want to get from 50k to 100k and I’m going to do this, this, this, and this over the next X number of months or years and you do those things and that plan may or may not work.

But what if you started asking yourself or writing a goal down to say, “Here’s who I want to be.”

I want to be a positive and uplifting person. I want to be loving towards my family. Every time I see my family, I want them to feel excited in my presence. I want them to feel uplifted. I want them to feel inspired. When I meet new people I want them to feel like they just met somebody really interesting, and they want to get to know me at a deeper level. I want to set a goal to be the kind of person that follows through on every commitment I make to myself.

The goal of I’m going to achieve XYZ by a certain date (such as I’m going to lose 20 pounds by March 30th) is very results driven. It’s very achievement driven, and the timeline for that may change. You don’t know how quickly you can lose that weight and you want to be able to do it in a healthy way, so you may have to adjust that plan.

But who do you have to be to reach that weight?

You have to be the kind of person who commits to their goals, who does whatever it takes, who when they say they’re going to do something they do it and follow through and hold themselves accountable.

So here’s my challenge to you – or even call it a suggestion or tip…

Begin journaling on a daily basis, writing down where you currently are and, more importantly, where you want to go – goals. It’s very fun to set goals like the type of income you want to earn, the type of business you want to run, the trips you want to take, the material possessions you want to own. All those things are cool.

If you want to go to a conference next year to learn something new, write that down. That’s a great goal to have. You need to know how much money it’s going to take you to get there and all that.

But I also want you to start thinking about 2, 3, or even 4 “Who do I want to be?” type of goals.

What I found is when I started doing this, I started writing things down like:

  • I want to be an inspiring person to be around for my family.
  • I want my family to feel loved and excited when I’m around.
  • I want my family to run and give me a huge hug when I walk in the door after being gone for a long time.
  • That’s the kind of person I want to be.

When I write that down and remind myself this is who I want to be, I find that all those other goals come to me a bit more naturally.  They come to me more easily. It’s because I’m acting and behaving in a way that’s congruent with those goals.

If I say I want to be a committed, dedicated person who follows through on her commitments and then I set a really, really aggressive goal like doubling my income in what some may deem an unrealistic period of time, I’m way more likely to hit that goal if I’m the kind of person who sticks to her commitments and then goes above and beyond the call of duty and does whatever it takes in any situation to create whatever I envision.

So that’s the difference. That’s the key. You may not have done this before. I know it was a relatively new concept for me. I was always writing down my material wants. I was always writing down the achievement-based goals and not the who do I want to be? kind of goals.

When I started doing that, it had such a deep impact on a daily basis. 

In those moments of weakness where I wanted to break a commitment and go back into an old habit that would have prevented those cool goals from coming into my life, these being goals would remind me of the kind of person I need to be and I want to be and intend to be.

I want to live this way every single day, and so I write those goals down on a daily basis and it keeps me in check. It keeps me on track for where I want to go.

So do this. Have some fun with it. Think about the kind of person you want to be, write it down, explain it in as much detail and then do it daily and repeat it to yourself and start living this way.

All those material goals and wants are going to come to you and remember to include the intangible goals too!

Mid-Year Life Audit and Assessment

 


A mid-year life  assessment is a deeply important process because it’s so easy to slip into busyness that leads you away from where you want to be by year end.

In this blog, I will be sharing with you some of my favorite journaling questions, garnered from several of my mentors, and including some of my own, and share how I use them.

First, I take out a pretty journal like the one pictured above.

Then, I sit quietly and set my intention to listen to my inner self — my Wise Self or Rishi — trusting that she knows what the perfect choices are for me to make.

Next, I begin free-writing to these questions:

  • What is working? And what makes it work?
  • How is it working?
  • Is it making a positive impact?
  • Can I replicate this?
  • Where am I being powerful (in my life and in my business)?
  • What makes me most proud at this moment?

This helps me to remember the ‘why’ that makes my business more than just a business; how it keeps me inspired to continue the work that I do, with gratitude that I have found my life purpose at a deep soul level.


Next, I switch my focus to the coming months and journal the answers to these questions in my beautiful journal specially chosen for this purpose each year:

  • What is my vision for the end of the year? (When you do this, take the time to write out exactly what and how you want to create in both your business and your life, so remember to be clear and specific!)
  • What else do I want to manifest in my life? (Be very precise, and use tangible results that you have experienced before to answer this question.)
  • What am I committed to? (Commitment is the bridge between intention and action, and is a powerful way to create what you want!)
  • What information do I need? What do I need to know? (Answering this will direct where you need to put my time and energy.)
  • What daily action would I take if I were persistently doing what I need to do?

You can deepen the process and get even more clarity by asking “What else?” to each question, until finally you run out of steam and there is nothing more to add.

Journaling like this is a powerful catalyst for growing your business and is made all the more authoritative by not judging what comes up.

I repeat:  no judgement – just let your answers flow through you via the pen onto the page.

I promise at the end of this process you will have a much clearer understanding of what you need to do to stay on course for the final 5 – 6 months of this wonderful year!
