I hate when women struggle, in fact one of my biggest pet peeve is when I see women struggle, and let me be the first to tell you, you donâ€™t have to.Â OneÂ of the biggest reasons why women struggle is because they havenâ€™t cast a vision of where they want to be.Â
WhenÂ I first start working with my clients to comeÂ upÂ with a vision.Â It my job as a coach to help you see the importance of creating that vision. Now, here’s whereÂ beliefs comeÂ in.Â I work with women over 40 and some of them say to me, Girl, I’ve been dieting since I’ve been 15.Â How do I finally, break free?Â Vision is a challenge for them, because for as long as they’ve been dieting, they know where they want to be.Â I get the frustration. I’ve been in thatÂ place where you want what youÂ want,Â and you want it rightÂ frickinâ€™Â now.Â Â
Now is the time for you to stop for 10 hot minutesÂ andÂ draw upÂ a blueprint of where you want to be.Â DREAM BIG! Do you remember when you were a kid you dreamed so easily and no one told youÂ yourÂ dream was crazyÂ orÂ impossible.Â Somewhere along the wayÂ thoughÂ we startedÂ to believeÂ that not everything isÂ possible,Â andÂ we can’t do it all. I’m going toÂ start chipping away at that belief.
Not sure how to create one, Iâ€™ve mapped out the blueprint right here. Â Click here to grab your copyÂ
Why Is A Vision?
AÂ vision is what helps you set your priorities.Â So many women jump around from goal to goal and never really settle on oneÂ thing. When you donâ€™t settle on something you canâ€™t see progress and when you donâ€™t see progress you get frustrated and you stop, or you are off seeking something else. Â
To avoid that frustration keep it simple, though not often easy question.
How do YOU define success?
What does an ideal day look like for you?
Can you sustain that and live a happy life without thatÂ roller coaster that many of us have gone through?Â
This vision helps you really stay focusedÂ on what matters most to us.Â It helps you define your why. My vision isÂ I believe every woman should feel comfortable in their body.Â Â
The best part about having a vision is thatÂ once you have a plan in place, you start to create this movie in your mind, and your brainÂ starts to think, “I’m that girl who just knows what to do.” It makes you ask yourself things like, “What is the one small step I could take right now and feel like I can do that for the next week, next 30 days?”Â Â Think big thenÂ bring it back to at least one small step you can take.Â
Â From there you focus in onÂ your motivation.Â Maybe your why is that you want to be able to go into your closetÂ and wear whatever the hellÂ you want to wear. Awesome!Â But is that enough to motivate you?Â When it’s freezing cold or raining outside, is wearing what you want to wearÂ going to getÂ you out of bed andÂ to the gym? And I’m not going to want to get out of bed and go to the grocery store. Is that enough?Â Â I’ve been very honest with anyone who asked, there are mornings when the alarm clock goes off at quarter five, and I was like,Â sweet Georgia Brown. Not today.Â Sometimes what motivates you is your overall goal. Other times, it’s being accountable to someone else, someone that you don’t want to disappoint, who will hold your feet to the fire, and won’t cave when you start to bat your eyes and throw a pity party.Â Â
Â So now, you know your why and what motivates you, but do you know what to do if you run into a challenge? It’s inevitable that somewhere, sometime along your journey, life is going toÂ happen. We all have challenges. I want you to think about what could come upÂ –Â childcare, work, spouses, other family members, sickness,Â etc.Â What areÂ the obstacles that can come up? Then,Â start thinking of plan B’s.Â Put contingency plans in place so when something goes wrong, you don’t get stuck in it. You always have a direction thatÂ you can move next whether that’s putting one foot in front of the other or you need to pivot to make progress.Â Â
