LifeVisions...Why are they so important?

As I spent the first day of a 2 day workshop with Kevin Hall, author of Aspire and Ann Webb, I can't help but get clear on what it is that I want out of my life. Being clear is vital to manifesting. I have so many different things going on in my life. I know my weight loss has brought me to a place where I have a great desire to give back and help others and in the process of finding my own path, I have come across soo many different opportunities. My greatest challenge now is to find what I am great at and go for it. I know for me I am excellent at working with people one on one in coaching them in getting what they want out of life. Whether that is weight loss, business, improvement in relationships, improvement in self care and self love and acceptance, I walk people through the steps I took to get the success I have. For the first time in my life I feel like I am in complete integrity working these steps on a daily basis myself. I believe in order to lead anyone I have to be walking the talk and like I said... I don't think there has ever been a time in my life like now where I have been able to say that. It's a true miracle to see where I have come from and where I am now. I always tell people that I work with that I can't do their work for them  but I can be the one cheering them on with unconditional love and acceptance. Most of the time that is what we all have searched for our entire lives is to have someone love us for exactly who we are RIGHT NOW. This whole process is about acceptance of self. We can't move forward without knowing where we are. "You can not change what you don't acknowledge."

My intention for taking the LifeVision workshop is to get crystal clear on my life's purpose. So far we have talked about what it is that we want spiritually and in relationships. I know for me these two areas of my life are very important to me and I plan on spending a lot more time really going deep with what it is I want in both of those areas. It's interesting when I ask people what they want out of life or in a relationship they often can tell me what they don't want but it's much more difficult for them to tell me what they DO want. Why is that? My guess is that we know the pain that comes from what we don't want but what you may not know is that whatever it is that you choose to focus on expands and if you focus on what you don't want you end up with more of what you don't want. I would venture to say also is we haven't given ourselves the permission to dig deep to figure out what it is that we want. Most people have no idea how to tap into that. Well.. good news me and other's are out here to help. I am seeing more and more people dedicating their lives and their professions to this very thing. When we are doing what we are passionate about my father always told me it won't feel like work. It's true.

ACT NOW: Start by making a list in your journal or a piece of paper with 5 areas of your life.. which are:


In each category list the things you DO want. Don't use any negatives in your language. Kevin Hall who is the word nerd would tell you there is a power in words and you NEVER want to have negative words in a place where you are trying to manifest. We want to keep everything in the positive. Just check yourself. Get as deep as you can. Keep writing until you can't write any longer. The other thing we talked about today is think BIG. This isn't a time for you to play it small. For me I NEVER in a million years thought I would be at my goal weight of 138 lbs but I am. If weight is one of your goals, be specific as to how much weight and put a "BY WHEN" on it. Get detailed because it matters... just be careful what you ask for!!


  1. All such great advice. And you are absolutely correct about focusing on what you DO want. We can become aware of what we don't want as a way of clarifying what we do want, and then as soon as we are clear, leave what we don't want behind.

    Thanks for all that you do!

  2. Becky, one thing I found important to my language of being clear is to eliminate the opportunity to sabotage myself. The word...but... had to go. For example "I'd love to help you, but..." The word always allows for me to betray myself and create a justification for not allowing my self to be real. I still catch myself trying to use the word, and gives me opportunity to work my program and to be accountable.
