Back in June I enjoyed a short working vacation in Vail, Colorado a place I have visited regularly since 1981. My trip resulted in an amazing period of reflection, personal growth and many lessons which I have shared here in two earlier post. The first dealt with manifesting your perfect life and that was followed by thoughts on embracing your personal stories to break through events of the past that may have created self-limiting beliefs in your life.
Today, I want to share my understanding of another concept which may in fact be the key to obtaining the life of our dreams. The topic is holding onto the vision of what we really want in our lives. It is one thing to sit down with your journal and write out a set of goals or better yet a life plan, it is quite another matter to hold onto your vision against obstacles and setbacks.
I remember sitting next to the raging Gore Creek with it’s banks overflowing from the Spring runoff as the water moved swiftly toward the Colorado River to fulfill it’s purpose as a tributary to the great Colorado. When I looked downstream I could see many obstacles in the path of the flowing creek; boulders, fallen trees, foliage and I thought of these as an analogy of the obstacles we face in pursuit of our vision or purpose. I watched as the water found its way over, under and around every obstacle and challenge with a clear purpose to flow eventually into the Colorado River. We must maintain the same focus and determination to achieve our greater vision life vision and purpose.
Here are 10 actions you can take to achieve your vision and purpose in your business and life.
