We have an illusion that when we make it in our business, life is going to be perfect - that our problems are going to disappear, but that isn't true at all!
Grant Cardone has a quote that I love, it basically says: If you're not creating new problems for yourself, then you aren't going big enough.
So in each new level you reach in business and in life you will have a new set of problems -- so what does this mean for living your vision?
In your vision, you might see yourself waking without an alarm, your children will be perfectly well behaved, getting themselves ready every morning without any screaming and then you eat an amazing 5 course breakfast that someone else made for you, and then you get into your nice car to take them to school and everyone is happy and excited to be going and then you get home and you work with only the perfect clients for you and there are never any problems. Unfortunately, that isn't living your vision at all, that is striving for an unobtainable level of perfection.
So what do you do, instead? To truly start living your vision, you must acclimate and align yourself to new levels of things that you didn't have before - new sets of clients, to a higher package or offer, or providing higher quality service.
How do you achieve this? Through incremental upgrades -- for example, while I would love to not ever have to set foot into my kitchen ever again and have every meal I eat cooked for me, the next best thing, is to have someone pre-prepare my meals for me and freeze them, so that I can easily prepare home-cooked meals for my family.
It also happens by setting clear boundaries in your life. If your vision includes being more present with your family, then you need to build in time to make that happen NOW. It isn't going to magically start happening when you hit your financial goals, so you need to create time and space for it to happen in your daily life. Whatever areas you want to have time for, be present for, or give more energy to, you need to start establishing that routine and boundaries today -- that is how you live your vision.
Your vision for yourself has to be something you can truly align yourself to - it can't be based on perfection. When you attempt to align to perfection, you are actually holding yourself back from achieving your vision. Why?? because you are attempting to align to things that you can't control!
