First things first, you must have a clear vision before you can do anything else.  Without it, you’re stuck.  When your vision is clear everything starts rolling in the direction of what you want to create.  Everything is born out of your vision which is why it’ so important, and whether you realize it or not, it’s a crucial part of the planning process. Without clarity, you have no vision and without vision, there is no growth.

At times, you may not know just how to get clear, and at others it’s possible that you avoid getting clear because intuitively you know that once clarity comes the doors open and at some point you’re going to have to make a change.  Sometimes it’s confusion that keeps people from being clear.  It’s quite easy to become accustomed to the way things are and doing what you normally do or what you’re expected to do and to get stuck in that holding pattern, keeping yourself from moving forward.

When you take the steps to create your vision and to bring clarity to that vision, it sets you free.  Free to create whatever it is you conjure up; free to explore and bring your vision to life.  That freedom asks you to be brave and step out onto the skinny branches and into spaces that you haven’t ventured before. Let me just say that if what you conjure up isn’t asking you to do that, you need to go back to the drawing board and cook up something else.  If your vision doesn’t stretch you or even scare you, then it’s not big enough.  It’s stepping out onto the skinny branches, into that unfamiliar territory that will have you avoid clarity, because inside you know that you’re going to have to make a shift; that change has to come.  If you find yourself unable to get clear about your vision, you might just be avoiding that clarity.  Ask yourself why you can’t seem to get clear.  Is it because you simply don’t know how, or is it because you’re avoiding it?  Once you have the answer, go through the process to get clear.  Clarity brings about the change that is necessary.  Welcome and embrace the change.  With it comes tremendous growth, the pursuit of your vision, and ultimately realization of your dream.
