Life can be hard sometimes, and when it is, it can feel easier to throw in the towel and give up than to keep pressing forward. But when you have a clear vision of what you want your life to be like (or even a hazy idea), you can spend your time and energy focusing on making those things happen instead of scrolling on social media, even if it’s all you feel like doing.
Your vision acts as an insulator for your goals and dreams from all the ups and downs of life.
When you slowly build your life around this vision, then even when things get hard and you don’t feel like showing up, you can move forward without having to make any decisions.
Instead, you just do the next thing: laundry, family read-alouds, homework, or making dinner. And, when life needs to stop – because sometimes it does – your vision makes it easier to jump right back in and pick up where you left off.
My vision helps me create a daily rhythm that we can walk no matter how I’m feeling. This rhythm I’ve designed allows me to feel successful by noon, no matter how much sleep I’ve had or any other life circumstances slowing me down.
This doesn’t happen overnight. It is built over the years as you continue to make little one-degree changes to make your vision a reality. Going slow makes things stick for you and your family and is a sure path to success.
For lots of practical examples of what my vision and daily rhythms look like in my life, check out this week’s episode!
