I believe within you is a visionary. A visionary thats anxiously waiting to be unleashed. But in order to unleash it we have to understand what it means to be a visionary?
Although there are various ideas and definitions of what a visionary is, but to me, it’s someone who isn’t afraid to take risks, to forge their own path, and who questions everything.
A visionary creates when others doubt, they embrace who they truly are, and they see unlimited possibilities where others can’t.
But sadly, we aren’t really taught to think like this.
From an early age, we are bred to live life from a very limited template. A template that tells us what we need to learn to be successful, what kind of job we need to be accepted, and who we need to be to become in order to live a happy and fulfilling life.
But the truth is, we are way too vast to fit in such a small box. What we truly need is a container that allows us to play wholeheartedly, experiment boldly, and lead with curiosity.
A container that pulls out our truest gifts and reveals our deepest talents so we can embrace the self we were meant to become.
Ultimately, we need a container that encourages freedom! And that freedom can show up any that fits within your contatin.
Whether it’s the freedom to work when you want, with who you want, and get paid what you want.
Or the freedom to devote the time and energy to projects that fuel your creativity.
Or simply the freedom to live life on your own terms instead of living up to the expectations of others.
I know what you’re thinking… that sounds too good to be true right? I mean yeah that all sounds great but is that really possible?
You see, I used to believe that the higher I worked up the company ladder the happier I would be. I believed the more money I made the more fulfillment I would feel, and I believed the longer hours I worked the more I would feel accomplished
But the truth was…
I was tired, overwhelmed, overworked, and on the brink of burnout. The quality of my work was starting to suffer and I began questioning my path altogether. I was at a crossroads and I didn’t know what to do.
But despite all the hardship and challenges I was facing in my life, I came to an important realization that I still live by today: You can’t elevate your business and life on just talent alone.
I knew if I was going to have to make some radical shifts in my life that my toolbox was going to expand.
I knew I had to become someone else. A bigger version of who I already was. And before I knew it, I was on my path of unleashing the visionary within.
So enough about me. Let’s talk about you. What can you do bring out the visionary that lies within you? I have 5 tips to help you get a jumpstart on your journey.
1. Know Yourself Deeply
Being a visionary takes a deep self awareness. You have to know your strengths, honor and leverage your weaknesses, and contemplate what that highest vision of your life not only looks, but feels like. And If you don’t take the time to know yourself deeply, then how are going to be able to create the business and life you desire?
Yeah, diving into your psyche can get uncomfortable. But the truth is, growth requires you to get uncomfortable. Because if you’re not challenging yourself, then you will never change.
2. Get clear on your goals
Goals are dreams with a deadline and they have the ability to drastically alter the course of your entire life! But unfortunately, most people live in cruise control.
When you’re in the process of setting your goals, you have to be super specific. What does it look like fulfilling this goal? How does reaching this goal affect your life? And what’s the time frame of this goal? And the secret sauce to help achieve your goal even faster is to imagine yourself already having to achieve your goal.
3. Take Action
So now that you have your vision established and you have your goals set, it’s time to take some action! It’s not enough to know what you want! You to be brave enough to reach out and grab it.
But the sad fact is, so many people give up before they’ve even started.
So how do you know what actions to take? Listen to what inspires you and pursue it!
That feeling of inspiration is your internal guidance system. Think of it as you personal GPS. The more you follow what excites and inspires you the more opportunities will show up.
4. Hold The Vision
I’m not gonna lie, you’re going to be tested. You’re going to face challenges in all aspects of your life. And at times, it might feel like you’ve hit rock bottom. You will want to throw in the towel. You might be thinking that this path is too hard for you. These are your moments of initiation. And as long as you hold the vision and keep moving forward will you be able to breakthrough to the other side.
These moments are designed to see if the vision you are holding is really worth it. If you’re not willing to make the sacrifices then you might need to expand on your vision. Becoming a visionary is much like weightlifting. If you don’t have resistance then you are never going to grow.
5. Follow The Breadcrumbs
Now that you’ve devoted yourself to path of the visionary, you’re going to start seeing patterns unfold around you. It’s going to feel like the universe is conspiring to push you along your journey. And if that sounds too esoteric for you, here’s a more grounded example. Have you ever thought about buying a specific car? And after researching and reading the reviews, you start seeing this car everywhere? They didn’t just pop up out of nowhere. The cars have always been around. But now you have the consciousness to acknowledge them.
And that’s exactly how this works!
Opportunities have always been around you. But now you have the awareness to see it. And when you notice them, that’s a sure sign to follow the breadcrumbs. And if you keep following the breadcrumbs the more opportunities will start showing up.
