Vision so clear, fears become irrelevant

Make Your Vision So Clear That Your Fears Become Irrelevant

I recently attended an event by Brendon Burchard called “High Performance Academy”.

The above statement so rings true for me after that event. It was an opportunity for me to re-engage my life and business and get back in touch with my vision and dreams. When you have no vision and no goal, how do you know what you are aiming for? How do you take the next best step in turning your dreams into reality? How do you even remember what your dreams are if you don’t have a vision?

It is so easy to get lost in the everyday routine of life and lose sight of what drives you, what you want to accomplish and what things on your Live List you want to see and do before you kick the bucket. It is why I love attending events. They allow me to re-engage and help keep me moving forward. Events also allow me to connect with other like-minded individuals who are out there making a difference in the world. That alone is INSPIRING and depending on someone else’s vision and how big it is, that might just kick you in the booty to step up your game as well.

After all when the vision is clear, no fear will stop you from achieving it.

Action Step: grab a pen and paper and jot down your vision. Dream again. Make it so clear that you can see it and practically touch it, it is so real.
Then feel free to comment below. You never know, your vision may just be the catalyst for another to step up their game.

 

Many blessings,

Shay

Leaders & Starting a Movement

0

Derek Sivers’ TedTalk on How to Start a Movement
With help from some surprising footage, Derek Sivers explains how movements really get started. (Hint: it takes two.)

1. A leader needs the guts to stand out and be ridiculed but be easy to follow as well.

2. 1st follower has the most crucial role: They show everyone else how to follow.
In this step the Leader must embrace the 1st follower as an equal. It is no longer about the leader, it is about them…plural.

3. The 1st follower is the most underestimated one in leadership. They are the ones who call on more followers. The 1st follower is the one that transforms the 1st nut into a leader.

4. Enter in the 2nd follower and you start to have a crowd.
A Movement must be public. It is important to not just show the leader but the followers because New followers emulate the followers and not the leader.

5. You start having more followers and more followers and thus momentum and then a tipping point thus a MOVEMENT!

6. As more people join in, it is less risky. Those that were sitting on the fence before have no reason not to. They won’t stand out, they won’t be ridiculed but they will be part of the in crowd if they hurry.

7. Then you start to get the ones who like to stick with the crowd because they will be ridiculed for not being a part of it.

Recap:

1. If you are the 1st one, remember to treat and nurture your 1st followers and treat them as equals.

2. Leadership is often over-glorified. Yes it takes one to Stand Up And Lead but it is the 1st few followers who transform the “lone nut” into a leader.

Have the courage to follow and show others to follow. When you find a “lone nut” doing something great, have the guts to stand up and join in.

dreams-sleep or chase after them

Dreams…continue to sleep or chase after them?

2

dreams-sleep or chase after them Every day you have the choice to hit the restart button or the snooze button. I love this note because it speaks to just that. 1. Hit the snooze button and continue to dream OR 2. Wake up and Chase your dreams.

So which one is it for you?

If you are someone who is on path and purpose you know exactly what direction you are headed and what you are doing. You are probably someone who is jumping out of bed even before the alarm clock goes off you are so excited. Awesome, keep chasing those dreams!

What if you are the person who would rather hit the snooze button, just one more time? What if you don’t know exactly what you are meant to do in this lifetime, what impact you are to make in the world, things may seem drab and you just don’t have that “get up and go” excited feeling. Then what?

Well, let me ask you this…what DO you enjoy doing?

If time and money was no object, you had a bank account that was bursting at the seams and all the time in the world, what would you be doing?

If the answer doesn’t come to you right away, you deserve to consciously learn to dream again, just as children do.  Your task right now is to pull out a piece of paper and start writing down things in each of the following categories.

I am happiest when I am….?  Reading a book, having an “Ah-ha” moment, helping children read, hearing that I was able to help a friend with a problem, spending time with family, being in nature, traveling the world, trying to uncover a mystery, creating a new app or program, speaking in front of a crowd, rearranging furniture or loving on animals.

Travel-where would you go? Some place with white sandy beaches & crystal clear blue water, perhaps the rain-forest  a cruise, the mountains, a spa resort, hiking, Comic-Con, go stand on a glacier, go on a bike ride overseas and raise money for your favorite charity or maybe take a trip around the world and see all of the 7 Wonders.

Home-Where would you live and what would it look like? A big custom home in the Alps, beach front property, a country ranch with 20 acres of land with horses, a high rise in the big city with a infinity pool overlooking the night life or perhaps a home for every season.

Vehicle-What car have you always wanted to have? Be detailed of the color and all the amenities that it would possess. Have you ever driven one before? If not I highly suggest you make that a priority this weekend, then take a picture of you in the car! Feel what it feels like to sit in the seats, experience the way it drives and how that makes you feel.

Who would you help? We all have people in our lives that have assisted us in our journey and since in this example we have unlimited funds and time…what would you do for those people that have helped you along the way? Buy them a house, assist with medical bills (heck pay them off), take them on a vacation, spend time with them, watch their kids for them while they go on a all expense paid date-your treat, shopping spree, cook them a gourmet meal (or have a amazing chef do it for you), perhaps even ask that special someone to spend the rest of their life with you?

Pinterest is a great place to assist you in opening your mind to dream again. You can create your own mini “dream boards” for all of the above.

My goal is not for you to get caught up in the materialism of these things but it will jump start you to start thinking about what you enjoy doing again. We deserve to Dream just as children do and for those of us that lost that along the way (like I did) this helps to get us jump started. Then we can take it to the next level but we must start somewhere.

Enjoy the Dreaming process, don’t turn any idea down no matter how crazy or if you feel you may never be able to afford it. There is no harm in writing it down or saving it to a Pinterest Board.

May you always remember to DREAM BIG!

With love,

Shay Wheat

” The hirer you want to climb, the more you need leadership. The greater the impact you want to make, a greater your influence needs to be.” – John Maxwell, Author of “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” I had the pleasure of mentoring 4 juniors at a local high school for a few months and this was their gift to me. Thank you ladies for making an impact and influencing my world.
