Have you ever dreamed of working with clients like fortune 1000 corporations, big institutions or government agencies? Did you immediately reject it because you had no idea where to start? Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right.” It can be fun to step back and imagine working with a big company. Often, business owners forget to envision their dream business. Now is a good time to create a vision.
Take a moment to envision your ideal business AND how it integrates with your whole life. Typically, there are five categories to people’s lives; health, relationships, vocation, time/money and spirituality. Your business is your vocation. How does it fit in with the rest of your life? Describe your idyllic lifestyle. Define as many details as possible, feel it, smell it, hear it. Write some notes related to the following areas:
Health practices – Relationships – Business – Time/Money – Spirituality
Once you have an idea of how your business supports your life, go deeper into your company. Envision your dream business. It’s okay to visualize clients like banks, technology firms, national chains-as big as you can imagine.
Consider these areas:
- Describe your team
- What kind of a leader would you like to be?
- Describe your ideal clients
- Describe your vendors and service providers
- Describe your business financials
You have now taken an important step. Do you feel energized? If so, you are on the right track. If you feel overwhelmed, notice if this is your dream or what you think you should be doing. Refine your vision until you feel light. Next, define an action to take toward your dream. When you act, desires and intentions take form.
If you can dream it, you can create the reality, stay focused and act. Find more ideas in my Free Strategy Workbook gift.
