Creating A Personal and Business Vision That Is Uniquely You

Written by Maria Marsala

What do you see yourself doing a year from now? 3 years? 5 years? When you die, what would you like people to say about you? The answers to those questions, and a few more, can assist you as you preparerepparttar "first edition", of your vision. Whyrepparttar 125602 first edition you say? Well, if you are an evolving human being, your vision is apt to change as you do.

A vision helps to pull you forward - towards "something you've deemed is special". Without a clear vision, you may find yourself confused, stuck, stressed, overwhelmed, and drained. How can you get back on "your" track? The answers are as individual as you are. Use some ofrepparttar 125603 ideas below as starting points.

Take a look at where your vision is on your priority list. If it isn't high enough on your list... ~~ask yourself why ~~do something about it ~~let it go

Write down every reason (excuse) for why you don't have a personal or professional vision. Don't stop till you have run out of reasons. Then followrepparttar 125604 suggestion that fits you best ~~Celebrate by burning what you've written! Isn't it time to letrepparttar 125605 excuses go? ~~Celebrate by creating at least five solutions to each of your excuses. If you can't come up with five, ask your coach for assistance. Then get going.

Some people can create a plan and that plan never changes. They go for something and don't stop till they get there. Others change their plan often. Still others use both styles. Remember what your style is and do your best. Don't worry about everything being "someone else's idea" of perfect. Throw "doing it perfectly" outrepparttar 125606 window! Whatever way YOU do it WILL be ideal for where you are now. That includes waiting tillrepparttar 125607 time is right for you or not doing it at all!

Ask your friends and clients what they think your personal or professional vision is about, what your strengths are etc. You may be surprised at what you learn!

The Economic Revolution - How To Survive Into The Next Millennium

Written by Pamela Heywood

Obviously, I mean THIS Millennium now, but what follows is an article I first had published in a magazine in July 1996. So, why am I writing this introduction and re-publishing now?

May 2000: The other day, I was reading an article on MAY PLANETARY ALIGNMENT By Dorene A. Carrel a Seattle-area astrologer who provides consultations for natal, relationship and relocation charts. In her article, Dorene cites astrological reasons, due to these current planetary alignments, for changes in our banking and monetary systems and goes on to say that perhaps bartering may becomerepparttar wave ofrepparttar 125601 future.

I was stunned byrepparttar 125602 *coincidence* withrepparttar 125603 information I had researched some years before for one of my teeth-cutting articles in my new career as a journalist after spending 20 odd years in management accountancy and business administration.

We are seeing this all happening now, every day onrepparttar 125604 WWW, even though I didn't know I meantrepparttar 125605 Internet when I wroterepparttar 125606 original article. We barter daily for freebies, reciprocal links and more in order to promote our online businesses. There are many of us trying to eke a living in this way against a backdrop of rising unemployment and a lack of other support systems. And it ain't always easy!

Read on, I know it will sound like doom, gloom and bleakness. It isn't: I hope that in fact it will give you motivation, inspiration and confidence in what you are doing. I thinkrepparttar 125607 Internet isrepparttar 125608 *right* place to be. Follow allrepparttar 125609 advice you'll read to keep persevering in your efforts and don't falter whenrepparttar 125610 going gets tough. The only way you can fail is to give up.


In muchrepparttar 125611 same way as we are headed for enormous environmental changes, so we are headed for economic changes on a scale that none of us has witnessed before or will again.

Sincerepparttar 125612 mid 16th century,repparttar 125613 world's economies have suffered regular depressions and it is now recognised that there is a 60 year debt cycle. It doesn't take much to realise that sincerepparttar 125614 last, The Great Depression, fell inrepparttar 125615 1930's, that we inrepparttar 125616 '90's are therefore slap-bang in another.

However, there is also another cycle that is even more impacting. That is a 500 year cycle, which we are due to undergo aroundrepparttar 125617 year 2000. No-one has yet discovered any scientific reason for this cycle, but it certainly exists. In fact, it is already underway and it isrepparttar 125618 combination of these two economic cycles that is why there will be such an enormous revolution inrepparttar 125619 world economic structure as we know it.

We only have to look back into history to see what happened at previous 500 year intervals, to seerepparttar 125620 proof and measurerepparttar 125621 likely impact of what we will witness. History does repeat itself. It was between 50 BC and 50 AD thatrepparttar 125622 Christian religion began andrepparttar 125623 Roman Republic was replaced by an Empire. Around 500 AD,repparttar 125624 Roman Empire collapsed. At 1000 AD,repparttar 125625 Dark Ages ended to beginrepparttar 125626 Middle Ages.

In 1500 ADrepparttar 125627 Modern Age really began when great changes were brought about byrepparttar 125628 invention ofrepparttar 125629 printing press in around 1450. Imagine that impact of having been able to teach masses of people to read, write and communicate forrepparttar 125630 very first time.
