Winging Your Average Life..
I want you to look at that heading and really think about what it means and subsequently what it means for your online income. That's what your here for right? To make a living on the internet, creating an amazing business which lets you take control of your life and make it by your own design.You can't make anything great unless you plan on making it that way, there's a saying that goes, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail". I'll be honest I have no idea who said that but the meaning behind it resonates with me so deeply, that every day I get up I know what I am doing and what I am working towards. But too often I speak with people and they don't know what they are going to do in that day, they might say "oh I'm just working" or "its my day off".
These are the same people who don't know what they want out of life and they end up winging every day they get through. Even business owners who have the motivation and drive to make something of their business, don't always have a clear vision of how they are going to grow their business and where it is going to be in 3, 5 or even 10 years.
I want you to think of it this way, if you plan on going on holiday you have to really plan that holiday in detail if you are going to make it a great holiday. The location, the activities, whether its hot or cold there, whether the accommodation is classy or cheap, whether or not there is a mini bar because you know you are going to want a drink when you arrive at your room. The point is if you don't think about what you want out of a holiday, you will probably have a rubbish one. What I want to show you here is exactly how you can create an epic vision of your future business and use it to map out your success over a 3 or 5 year period.#
Creating Your Vision
Whether it is creating your online income generating business, or even a combination of both online and offline, you need to start with a vision. The vision needs to be of you already having reached your end destination. When a plane fly's to another country, the pilot already knew where he was going and they have a ETA already calculated. They know where their going, why and roughly how long it will take, its the same with your vision.To enable you to create a great vision of your business, here are the steps that myself and many other entrepreneurs are using to create great businesses with a purpose.#
Step 1 - Create your picture
We think in pictures, so sometimes the best way of seeing the future you want is by drawing it. Now this doesn't have to be picasso grade work, it just needs to work for you, enabling you to put what you want your business to look like in years to come in drawing. This will be the starting point of writing your vision so think about the different components that would make up an ideal business for you. I remember I drew a picture of a laptop and a hammock on a private beach to begin with, I love travelling and if I can run my business like that, which many other people do in the same way then I am going to do so. The same goes for you, what do you really want out of your business and what do you want it to be?
Step 2 - Collect some photographs
Creating an online income or for that matter any other business is extremely ball breaking at times and it does drag you down if you rely on will power alone. Sometimes you need to remind yourself of why you are doing it, remind yourself of why you are putting in the effort in the first place and collecting photos is a great way to do it. Collect photos that reflect what you want out of your business, if that means you want a flash car and a mansion as a result of the online income you generate, then you need to find some pictures of these things. Do not under estimate the power of this step, seeing visual reminders of what you are working towards is great motivation to keep on going even when the going gets tough.
Step 3 - Describe your perfect day
Now were really getting into detail in this step. Now you need to describe your ideal day and what you want it to look like. What would you consider to be a day that just goes right for yourself? One that you come home and just can't stop talking to your other half about, a day that has been formed from lots of hard work and graft. Write it all down in detail so you can come back to it on a daily basis.
Step 4- Imagine what life will be like
Now you need to imagine exactly what your life will be like once you have created your ideal business. When you think about something already having been done, your subconscious will do everything it can to make it a reality as it does not know the difference between make believe and reality. Once your subconscious begins to work for you to make it reality, you have the most powerful tool on your side. Be as specific as you can, remember you need to make it so real, because when it comes down to it, the time in between you achieving your vision and now, simply becomes the buffering time of life.
Step 5 - Get clear about the value you deliver
You need to decide now exactly what the value is you are providing to your audience. Not just the features themselves, you need to explain the benefits of your business and what it can do for your customers. When you wake up knowing what you and your business is all about, you can create an online income unparalleled to any other income source, because you have a business that fuels the fire of your passion and a limitless platform of which to promote it. Know your features and benefits like the back of your hand.
Step 6 - Write your vision
Now it is time to write down the vision for your business. Don't worry if it isn't perfect, you can tweak it and add to it in time, it just needs to be believable, like it has already happened. Just start writing now!In time you will be able to emotionally charge it in various different ways, using language that really gets the hairs on your neck to stick up. If you have a strong vision written down now, giving you a reason to get out of bed every day to make it happen, if you read it every day and make it a part of you, well you are on your way to achieving your desired online income, business and lifestyle.
