VISION & VALUES

WHAT’S MY DREAM? WHAT MOTIVATES ME?

You already have all the connections, time and energy you need to do something truly audacious. This month you declare your inspiring vision. And you’ll set down the values to help you along the way.

This month’s case studies show that you’re not going anywhere without knowing your true motivations. The webinar will show you how to forecast your destiny, and the accompanying workbook translates that into a powerful vision & values statement that adds onto last month’s biography.

VOCAB

VISION: ˈviZHən

noun: To imagine potential futures and forecast one’s own destiny

Dreams are cool. Dreams are one of the most intrinsically human experiences. And dreams are powerful. They motivate us towards a future that has yet to come true.

Your biography from last month was a curated list of what has happened in the past. Your destiny is a future that extends authentically from that past. And life doesn’t necessarily have to make sense… there are surprises in life.

The saying “you can be anything you want to be” does not mean you can be everything you want to be. It means that if you focus on any one thing, then you’ll be surprised by the power of that dream. You will have to choose a future that you want more than any other, one that is truly the most motivating. This isn’t about choosing the easy path, it’s about choosing that one path that you wish to wake up to each morning.

VALUE: ˈvalyo͞o

noun: Something you always uphold, or something you always avoid.

We care about things. Some things we care about so much we’re willing to endure great sacrifice for them to come true. These are your values. They are your motivations. They guide you on how to (and how not to) achieve your dream.

Caution: Many creators are so unnecessarily burdened with other people’s values that they can’t uphold of their own. Drop what you don’t need. You must uphold your own values before you take care of anyone else’s agenda. Your values are not selfish.

INSPIRATION

A person who sees a problem is a human being; a person who finds a solution is visionary; and the person who goes out and does something about it is an entrepreneur.

In my life, I have given a fuck about many people and many things. I have also not given a fuck about many people and many things. And those fucks I have not given have made all the difference.”
