How to Plan for the Future AND Enjoy the Present

We’re taught from a young age to look toward the future. That life really begins once something in the future happens, such as once you become the person you’re going to be when you grow up. The problem is that this sets us up in a pattern of chasing, not having. Many clients come to me saying they have big dreams and want to make an impact in the world but they don’t want to sacrifice the present moment. They believe both is possible but don’t know HOW. It starts with relearning how to vision in a way that supports both the goal AND the journey.

 In this episode of Unlimited, I’m diving into how to engage visioning in a way that supports both achieving your goals AND enjoying your life.
 Some of what I’ll cover in this episode include:

  • What exactly IS visioning
  • Ways we learn to vision that actually sabotage us
  • Overcoming fear of failure/fear of success
  • The importance of having a purposeful vision
  • Ways to engage creating a vision effectively for yourself or with others

I’m particularly passionate about this topic because it’s been a big learning for me personally. For years I tried to build the life I thought you were supposed to have to be happy. I worked hard to be in the present moment and not get caught up in the future or the past. Instead of fully living life, I became really good at managing it. Learning how to vision as I describe in this episode was pivotal for me in feeling like I truly owned my life.
