Step Into A Clear Vision
Before you can accomplish anything, you must set your vision and make the decision to step into it – and stepping into it is the essential part of the process. It is not difficult to come up with a place you would like to be or something you want to accomplish, but the decision to follow through is a whole different story. By simply stepping out of your comfort zone and following through with the process, you are ahead of 80% of the population that will never have the power to follow through because they are afraid to do it. Once your vision is clearly set, all that has to happen is to decide to go for it – to actually follow through with reaching your goal.
When you choose to step out and do something that you have never done before, expect fear to show up because it will. It is natural to feel an internal resistance because your mind tells you to run to safety. Your inner story, your subconscious, says you should turn around because you are headed to a place that does not feel safe, and you are doing something wrong. This is the first hurdle; you must overcome the first level of fear. You do this by telling yourself that these feelings are not true; this new vision will take you further than you are right now, and it will lead you to a better place: a place where you have set your vision and your goal.
Fear is conquered by courage, and courage is found in a firm belief that the vision you have for yourself is the right one. Courage happens when you take that step toward your vision, and you are all fired up – let’s do this! Unfortunately, it will take more courage than the first step. When things are getting complicated and you start to lose sight of the purpose, the second level of fear comes in to try and take you back off the path. The way to override this old programming is to execute the plan. A goal without action is simply an idea, not a goal. Use your courage to commit to the execution of your plan.
Hold Yourself Accountable
Once you step into the second layer of courage to commit to executing the plan, accountability becomes your key to success. When you begin to hold yourself accountable to the vision, commit to overcoming the fear, and push yourself to move forward and follow through with the actions to achieve your vision – you have found the recipe for success. That is precisely what has to happen to reach your goal. True accountability occurs when you learn to hold yourself accountable, and you don’t wait for someone else to do it for you. Self-accountability is something you must master; otherwise, you will continue to loop in the exact same results.
