Creating A 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 124050 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 124051 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 124052 suggestion that fits you best ~~Celebrate by burning what you've written! Isn't it time to letrepparttar 124053 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 124054 window! Whatever way YOU do it WILL be ideal for where you are now. That includes waiting tillrepparttar 124055 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!

Know No Fear!!

Written by Rick Beneteau

The Greatest Wonders ofrepparttar World we'll never know for they were destroyed before they were even built byrepparttar 124049 great enemy of man - Fear!

That's my take on Fear but here's some notable and famous quotes:

"Our deepest Fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest Fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us." Nelson Mandella from his inaugural speech

And one ofrepparttar 124050 most insightful figures of all time sums up Fear in his normally humoristic manner:

"I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened." Mark Twain

Perhapsrepparttar 124051 most famous quote of all about Fear, andrepparttar 124052 one that hits home hardest with me, is this:

"The only thing we have to Fear is Fear itself." Franklin D. Roosevelt

I will continue alongrepparttar 124053 thoughts of what is a most profound truth about Fear:

"To live with Fear and not be afraid isrepparttar 124054 final test of maturity." Edward Weeks

The reason I decided to use "quotes" throughout this article is to fortifyrepparttar 124055 fact that Fear is nothing but an Illusion. It is imagined, as a dream is. But at least we wake up from a dream. Most people fall into Fear and remain frozen in its giant grasp all their lives! They either live in a constant state of paralyzing Fear or they have lowered their expectations to a level that they never feel Fear because they have "learned" not to risk and grow. How sad!

Fear isrepparttar 124056 minds great mortal sin.

And isn't it just at times when you have to risk something, that you Fear? Think about it! You've had a great idea but you don't tell a soul because you're afraid THEY won't think it's great. You've had long time aspirations to change careers but you cower atrepparttar 124057 mere thought of getting out of your Comfort Zone and out from underrepparttar 124058 safety net you've created for yourself (your job, your security, your routine). You've always wanted to start a business butrepparttar 124059 thought of putting together a business plan, getting financing andrepparttar 124060 unknown quantity ofrepparttar 124061 income you'll receive scaresrepparttar 124062 hell out of you!

How many opportunities have you allowed to slip by because you were frozen by Fear?

Do you know more aboutrepparttar 124063 things you Fear thanrepparttar 124064 things you desire?

Isrepparttar 124065 Fear of failure your biggest Fear of all?

Recognizing Fear!

Not a single person has ever accomplished anything of significance without first feeling scared to death!

You recognize your own tell tale signs of Fear. Might be a knot in your gut. Or a high state of anxiety. A flood of negative thoughts rush in and allrepparttar 124066 reasons NOT to do something hover over you like an ominous black cloud! The truth is, behind that cloud lay bright beautiful sunlight ready to nourish and grow your idea.

Fear is a loaded gun squarely aimed to slay you and all your potential. You need to be on-guard every waking moment to deflectrepparttar 124067 invisible bullet.

"Fear isrepparttar 124068 oldest and strongest emotion of mankind." H. P. Lovecraft

Fear isrepparttar 124069 cancer ofrepparttar 124070 human spirit.

Confronting Fear!

How many times have you had to, say, appear publicly to speak at a meeting or wedding, or attend traffic court, and you were just consumed by dreaded thoughts ofrepparttar 124071 pending event for days in advance? And when it was all over, a huge burden was lifted from your shoulder? The event went wonderfully without a hitch.
