I felt is was important to share my vision statement with you for this website. This is what I work toward every day, using it as my compass and motivator.
My vision is to accelerate the personal evolution of a thousand people in the next 12 months.
This means teaching my people how to shed the false limitations in their self-concepts. Then equip them with the knowledge, methods and means to decide on goals for themselves, and work to achieve them.
Personal evolution means becoming your true unlimited Self, being a courageous and passionate human being, able to create the life you deserve to lead with peace, joy, health and wealth.
I am achieving this through three channels:
- Free, content-packed, practical articles.
- Conscious awareness expansion with the Accelerated Meditation.
- And by helping private clients master Transformational Realization (teaching them how to create and manifest their dream lives) through an in-depth program working with me personally.
What is your vision?
Do you have a vision for your business? Or your personal life?
What are you on this planet to do? And does it have a positive impact on others?
And have you written it down? If it’s not written down, you’re making it much harder on yourself to realize. It’s like a little example for your brain. “I’ve had a thought, and I’ve materialized that thought onto paper. Now let’s bring it to life.”
One last thing about Vision
When you create a vision and decide to bring it to fruition, be prepared for any changes to yourself that you might be forced to make. If the vision is strong enough, and you are not the person that can realize that vision, it will force you to change into the person that will realize it.
Have you ever heard the story of a university professor went to visit a enlightened Zen master? While the master quietly served tea, the professor talked about Zen. The master poured the visitor’s cup to the brim, and then kept pouring. The professor watched the overflowing cup until he could no longer restrain himself. “It’s overfull! No more will go in!” the professor blurted. “You are like this cup,” the master replied, “How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”
So when you decide on a vision, be willing to empty your cup of your past preconceptions, and allow it to be filled anew with what is needed for your vision. Be willing to surrender to your grand vision, simplify, and allow it to drive you.
Do you have a vision? I’d love to hear it in the comments.

Great post. I will be going through a few of these issues as well.
Jim, I just recently started a Lawn Service in May. I have been doing pretty well so far. I am up to around 25 accounts now. However, I started this business with a friend and now I’m not quite sure if I really enjoy doing this anymore. It was something I sort of jumped into. It does bring in a small income right now and that’s nice but I really don’t enjoy it anymore. I ultimately would like to own a gym of some sort but I still get lost when I think about what I really want to do as my occupation. I’m a total fitness nut so I think something in that would be really cool. Anyways, any advice on what I should do or consider would help.
Hey Tommy, that’s great to hear. You’ve done well.
You have no limits when it comes to what you could do.
You’re probably well aware of the ‘cross-fit’ wave sweeping the world? It’s really taken off here anyway. People love it, it’s got a real point of difference (so people talk about it), and could be a great way of getting into the gym business in a totally new and different way.
You gotta go for it!! (btw, it doesn’t mean you have to give up your lawn service either. Why not have both?!)
Thanks Jim I agree
Great reminder about the importance of vision. Actually, I think goals and vision are very different things – I don’t like the former, but the latter is an important part of creating the life you want.
Interesting. Do you mean that the vision statement is a big-picture direction, as opposed to a detail-oriented goal, which is much more chunked down?
This is awesome. I am a big believer in defining and achieving specific, measurable goals. I know that you can change many souls. I also know deep in my heart that you will succeed.
Thanks Shilpan, your support really means a lot. It’s really great to have people like you guys (@Shilpan, @Mark & @Steve) to bounce ideas off.
It’s been proven time and again that goals written are much more often achioeved that those never comitted to paper. This covers goals from weight lss to wealth creation.
For that matter, keeping a simple to do list of the goals and tasks you wish to reach and complete each day will give you a tremendous productivity increase. Doing the same for your long term goals is just that much more powerful.
Hi Steve, yes I keep a “rolling” daily to-do list as well, and enjoy ticking the items off when I complete them. I do this because if I didn’t I default to my tendency to just ‘go with the flow’ in some areas. Which is great when you’re on vacation, but not when you need to get stuff done!
