Discover Your Vision – Two ways life is speaking to you RIGHT NOW

If you’ve been following my work for a while, you know that I talk a lot about the importance of having a vision. The more clear you are on your vision, your goals and where you want to go, there’s power in that.

One of the things I hear a lot from people is “What if I don’t know what I want, then what?” and there can be this feeling of I don’t know what I want, but I know vision’s really important, so then we tend to beat ourselves up, and it spirals into this place that isn’t productive.

Today I want to share with you how to discover your vision.

The Saturday I am hosting a Discovering Your Vision Masterclass. It’s free and it’s one hour. Join me for that because you’re going to walk away with even greater clarity on your vision (even if you already have an idea of what you want). And if you just know that you want MORE in your life, but you’re not sure what that is, this is where you want to be. So make sure you register to get started on really working on your vision.

So what if you don’t know what you want? And then, how do you then turn that into a vision for the life that you would love? Life is speaking to you right now and it is saying to you grow, grow, grow. It wants you to live a fulfilled life. It wants you to be happy. It wants you to be happy in all areas of your life. Know that there are ways that life is speaking to you right now to help you get greater clarity.

Your work to do is to really listen to what it’s saying to you. There’s two ways right now that it’s speaking to you, and one of the ways is in your longing. It’s in your desire, it’s in your interest for something.

I was working with a client, Lisa, and she always had a desire to find her soulmate. She had been in relationships before, but they were never quite what she wanted. She’d been alone for a long time, but she knew in her heart of hearts there was this yearning to be in a deep meaningful relationship.

If there’s ever been a part of you that said you’ve always wanted to visit a certain place on the planet, for me I’m so excited to one day walk the Great Wall of China. Those little ideas or inspirations where you just feel this “Hmm that sounds interesting. That would be fun!” Think about it as life for the universe saying this is a dream, this is a goal, this is something that you would love to do. The universe is speaking to you in those longings, in those moments of “I would like that! That would be fun! Oh can you imagine?” So that’s one way.

The other way life is speaking to you right now is in your discontents. It’s in your challenges, it’s in your problems that you’re facing right now. And this is where typically this shows up for people, in “I don’t know what I want but I sure know what I don’t want.” So when we really sit down and we evaluate our lives, looking at where we’re unhappy, what we’re struggling with, and start to pay attention to the times where we feel this dread, disappointment, or frustration. Then, instead of thinking of that as being bad, hard or awful, think about that as life saying “Hey, you don’t want this anymore! You want it to be different.” And that’s how life is speaking to you.

So what do we do with our longing and our discontent? It’s important to look at that discontent and ask “If it wasn’t this, what would I love instead?”

I have another client where her discontent was that she was successful in her career and achieving some really great results, but she was working seven days a week, well into the evenings. Friends and family would invite her out and there was a sinking feeling inside of her because she just didn’t know how she could fit it in. Family and friends is one of her core values, so she felt a pull that she had too much work to do, that she couldn’t do the things she wanted to – a big discontent in her life.

So in your life right now, chances are you’ve got some discontent, and you’ve got some things that you’re not happy with. So take that discontent and turn it into a vision – ask yourself, if it wasn’t this way, what would I be doing? Maybe it’s that you would have weekends and evenings off, and in those weekends and evenings you’d be visiting family, hanging out with my friends. Maybe you’re going for that run, or you would have time to read that book or work on your hobby. And that starts to formulate your vision. What you don’t want is really, really important to help inform that vision of what you do want!

Those two clients, the one with the longing for the partner, she is now married to the love of her life, and the one who was struggling with her time, she now has weekends off, she now has those evenings off where she’s got this balance in her life that feels really good to her. And it took both of them to really look at their longings, and look at their discontents to help formulate that vision of what it is they would love.

So what about you? What would you love in your life? Start paying attention and noticing life speaking to you through those longings, through those discontents, and use that to help you get clear about what you do want.

This is one of the ways that we really embrace that power of vision. Again, join me this Saturday for one hour for that Discovering Your Vision Masterclass, where I’ll be giving you other tools to help you get that clarity of your vision, because creating a life you love starts with having a picture of where we’re going.
