NOTES with Jay Conner Success
HOW VISION CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR 2018 GOALS
I hope you’re welcoming 2018 with open arms, because it’s a fresh start! No matter where you are in your life right now, you have the chance to guide your course and direction over the next year and accomplish some amazing things. But I’m not here to talk to you about resolutions. I want to talk about vision. Unlike resolutions or goals, vision is the fuel that motivates you to take action. When you’ve got vision, everything else in your life — your career, your relationships, etc. — falls into place. Without vision, you really have no reason behind what it is that you’re doing, and that’s a bigger problem than you might realize. Most of us know
To do it, accept where you are today without reservation and envision yourself in a better situation tomorrow. While you’re at it, eliminate those non-serving statements — the negative programming that’s designed to keep you where you are and justify your position. Here are a few common non-serving statements I tend to hear a lot.
• “You don’t understand where I’m coming from.” • “You haven’t walked in my shoes.” • “Jay, that’s easy for you to say — look where you are now!”
Whenever you argue your “story of limitations,” you’re only programming yourself to fulfill your own self-fulfilling prophecy. You have to let go of those limiting beliefs that keep you stuck.
what to do, and most of us know how to do what we need to do, but for some reason, the majority of us just don’t do what we intend to do. That’s what happens when we lack a driving force to guide our actions. I believe in my heart of hearts that the message here can transform the entire direction of your career and your life. It’s your vision that defines who you are. My friend Ray Higdon says, “As humans, we hunger for a vision. If we are unable to create a compelling vision for ourselves, we will latch onto someone else’s vision. With no vision for our future — ours or someone else’s —we extinguish our powerful internal fire. The good news? You can reignite it at any time.”
Where you grew up, your medical condition, a bad childhood, or lack of education: These just aren’t good enough excuses to avoid success. Let them go. Now, it’s important to distinguish between vision and goals. Goals aren’t enough to keep you going. Goals are not enough to get you past the tough days. You need to couple themwith a vision of who you want to become. Wherever you are now, you can get to where you want to go. And I will never, never, never believe anyone’s excuse as to why they haven’t achieved success. Because I know you have the seeds of greatness within you.
So, what does this vision look like? The vision can be a relationship you want, a material desire, losing weight, or a spiritual aspiration, but it’s all about making yourself better. In creating the vision, it’s not only what you see, it’s what you feel and what you hear. It’s your emotions. The vision needs to be written down in one paragraph, and part of writing this is thinking big. No limits! Do not worry about the how. The how will come after the vision is in place.

If you’ve been living and working without vision, now’s the time to change that. The first step to a strong vision is seeing yourself in a better situation than you are currently in — and doing so without justifying where you are now. Don’t make excuses for why you’re in debt, or why you’re unhealthy, or why you haven’t had a family dinner lately. You have the ability to reinvent yourself, starting now.
