Webinar “How to bring your vision to life”

Resources, Slides, Innercises, Notes and Extras from 18th April 2020 Webinar


1) Ask yourself what is that you really want to achieve, and what’s the bigger goal behind it. You don’t want to be more confident for the sake of it, do you? So what is that makes you feel you’d like to be more confident? What will you do with such confidence? What will you achieve, build, run? THIS is what you need to focus on. For each goal you have in mind, ask yourself “what’s important in this? what will be possible for you when you achieve it? where will it lead you?” dig deep and keep asking these questions till you have a clear vision of what is that you really, really want to achieve through developing such level of confidence (see innercise 3 and practice visualisations as you’ve learnt in our webinar of the key moments of your desired future – make your brain believe it’s happening NOW) .

2) Bringing on board all the insights you collected throughout the previous days, ask yourself what they mean in the wider picture of your new vision. How does it all fit together? If you have insights, there’s always a reasons and they always mean something to you. Your job, now, is to start connecting all the dots knowing that each feeling and intuition are relevant and nothing should be disregarded as too difficult/impossible/unachievable or you loose the great power you’ve been gifted with. Learn to trust your thoughts, feelings, intuitions and see where they lead you: be patient and kind with yourself so that you’ll give yourself time and space to make sense of it all.  

To complete this week’s innercises, refer to the previous week’s innercises:

3) Build a grand, vivid vision of what you’d like to achieve in your new, upcoming life. Focus on your emotions. How do you want to feel? How will it look like being in that life/career? What will it give you? Where do you want to be? Who do you want to be surrounded by? What will you devote your time to? Build a comprehensive, exciting vision of you in the future and nurture it by visualising it. Mental imagery is your best tool here (sneak peak: you’ll learn more about this in our next webinar, shhhh!). For now, following the example we discussed in the webinar, learn and practice what mental imagery is. Steve Jobs has used mental imagery throughout his career to realise his vision to revolutionise the world. You see the power of a “vivid vision + visualisation”? 

4) Act as if…” you were already where you want to be. You want to be a healthier person? Ask yourself how a healthier person would behave, think, dress up, what she would do in her spare time, how she shows up in the world and, as much as possible, behave as if you were already the healthier you you want to become. 
Research has proved that by acting as if you were already the person you want to become is the fastest and most effective way to direct your brain towards that goal. It’s the most used tools by champions and entrepreneurs. Think about Muhammad Ali: by continuously saying “I’m the greatest” he learned to feel and behave like the greatest. And so he became the greatest boxer in the world. Never, ever underestimate the power of your body as it directly influence your brain, as much as the opposite is true. Use your vision to guide you in the “Act as if…” new behaviour.

Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.
