What it means to create a vision?
Having a vision for your business is similar to your life goals. For some, their vision is to get abs they’ve been working out for, while others is to see themselves looking at their account and say, “someday this amount is going to be millions.” Having a vision for your business is similar, it’s just about figuring out what you want, then chunking that into smaller pieces to create small goals that help you get to your vision.
Why is setting a vision important?
Vision is also about clarity, you need to have a clear idea of where you want to go before you attempt to push your business to achieve that success. A business strategy is also a good thing to have, but in won’t help you achieve anything if you don’t have an actual idea of where you want your business to be. If you’re a small business owner or entrepreneur, you won’t be able to accomplish something until you have a clear picture of what your vision is.
You can’t only focus on the revenue your company will be gaining, but you also should try to see what role you’re going to play in the company you’re trying to build. Think about what strengths you have and why you enjoyed doing it in order to move forward with your plans. Set a vision that you want your business to be in the future because it’s your strength, it’s what you love to do, and enjoy your way to achieve great success.
What can you do to develop your own vision?
Here are questions you can answer by Andy Andrews:
- What do you really want to experience in your life?
- What are the most important things you would like to happen in your life before you die?
- Who do you want to become and what would you live for?
You may find that an answer that will revolve around your mind is freedom. You want to be able to do something that you enjoy doing and when you want to do them. Yes, you’ll need money or passive income to acquire freedom, but this is a type of vision you can put your mind to have in the future. This can be a reason why you’re pushing your business to be successful among other factors such as providing for your family or living a financially stable life.
Reticular Activating System (RAS)
Reticular activating system is network of nerves in our brainstem that filters out unnecessary information. This is so that only the important information gets through. This placed the science behind law of attraction.
For example, you’ve been doing on research on something you’re interested in learning, eventually, you’ll see more information on that topic as you go along. When you put your daily intention and focus on something no matter what is, you’ll be able to find it. Unless you put your attention to real estate or your business, information that may help you build on it, then you’ll never notice those billboards, commercials, or advertisements about it.
RAS allows you to filter out information that will not have an impact in your goals or your interests. The more you put your mind towards your goals and vision, the more likely you’ll be able to see the answers that are presented in front of you.
What we’re doing for our vision?
Entrepreneurial operating system (EOS) is a popular way of how to run a business. A book called Traction talks about how you can use EOS and implement that in your business and make it a reality.
A big part of the book is about its visions, how to create a compelling one, and with successful visions you will more likely be successful in your business. We’re using this book to get a better view of how to create our own vision. These guidelines will define the culture you want, what’s your core focus, and the reason for being in your niche. There’s a 10 year target you must set for your business, and each year focus on creating quarterly milestones to measure your progress and reassess where you are.
