The clearer your vision, the more likely you are to manifest the success that you want. So…what are the 4 steps to manifesting success in your business?
1. Get clear about your vision. The best way to do this is to ask the what, where, who, when, why and how questions. To provide you with an example, let’s continue with the New York Times Best seller analogy. What type of book will you write? Where will you do most of your writing? When will you complete your book? Why do you want to be a bestselling author? How will you get on the list? There are so many other questions you can ask yourself, but do you see how you can gain clarity simply by answering what, where, who, when, why and how questions?
2. Recognize the passion behind your vision. This step is important because your passion is connected to your why. If there is passion behind your vision, then you have the energy to manifest your vision into a reality. So, what are you passionate about? Are you passionate about serving others, leaving a life of financial freedom or being recognized as an expert? Whatever your passion is, recognize it and know your why.
3. Write it down. I can’t stress this enough. I once read that if you are serious about something, you will write it down. What an epiphany! Writing things down increases your memory and places it in your subconscious mind. Once something is in your subconscious mind, you begin to act as if it already happened! Also, just don’t write your vision; write your plan for your vision. I know you heard the saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” Let me tell you that this is very true. Without a plan, you will eventually become overwhelmed, discouraged and unmotivated. So, if you are serious about manifesting success, put it in writing!
4. Take action. Please repeat after me. “It all starts with my vision, grows with my planning and succeeds with my actions.” Say this to yourself, at least once a day and see what happens. Taking action is not only the fastest way to get clarity, but the ONLY way to success. Even if you don’t have all the answers to your questions, taking consistent action will eventually get you to the place where you envisioned yourself to be. Still not convinced? Consider this saying, “a vision without action is just an illusion.” So, what action steps will you take today?
