As you can see I enjoy talking about vision – I love hearing about new ideas, listening to people excited about new ventures and great opportunities that they are pursuing. My life as a leader and as life coach is all about helping people help themselves to get from where they are today to that place where they would like to be. I also enjoy gathering other peoples thoughts about vision and visionaries.
My major frustration though – still talking about some people after 10 years about the potential they have to be something, to achieve at a much higher level, to be come a better leader, to have seen changes in their home, work, business or marriage.
Listen, I certainly don’t write this as a finished article – in fact, some of my friends might put me in this ‘great potential’ category so I have to be careful to make sure that I am continually evaluating where I am at and whether I am moving forward, improving, changing, growing – in many areas.
I like to think of this as ‘THE PUSH’.
If your car battery is flat – you give it a ‘PUSH’ to start it.
If the team are behind they are encouraged to ‘PUSH’ forward.
When you get stuck, you ask for a ‘PUSH’.
I need a PUSH from time to time. To keep me moving on stuff and not get stuck. To not allow the distractions of life become an excuse for not doing the things which are necessary to help me become what I could be. To help me in this I have made sure I have great people around me who have permission to make comments, challenge me and ask the difficult questions I don’t always want to answer – tell you what though, it helps.
Vision needs a PUSH from time to time. Allow yourself and the team time to reflect, evaluate and realign. Don’t be afraid to make changes where required.
I am committed to PUSH myself this next month to see business opportunities grow, to see my home/kids/marriage grow, to see Xcel Church Darlington grow – this is a bold, accountable to everyone who reads it statement, but I must PUSH through on some stuff, get over myself and make it happen. If I don’t – in 6 months time I’ll still be the same person, thinking about what I wouuld love to become. I cannot afford to be like the majority of people and not doing anything. I would imagine that you are the same.
What are you committing to PUSH through on this month? Let’s stay accountable to one another.
