How to turn your vision into practical steps
Once you have your vision firmly in your mind, sit in there for a few moments (or longer) and really feel it and revel in that feeling.
Then make a list of steps to reach there with your book with the first stage. There are often not as many moves as you might assume you should take to get there.
When you establish your goal as the final step, and your book as the first, there’s often not as many steps as you might think in between.
I call mine my ‘Six Steps to Success Mud Map’.
In my case, I have my book in the first box, then the stages of getting smaller speaking gigs, and finally, applying to international events and ending up on stage in San Diego in front of 1500 people.
It’s not going to happen overnight (is it just me or do you always think of Pantene shampoo when you hear that phrase?), but it’s only half a dozen steps.
It may take months or even a year (or more) to get there, but now you have concrete steps to follow and get to your vision.
You can write your book with purpose.
And this, my friends, is the most important first step, which most people miss.
