And tomorrow is our annual vision board a casting party within that community. So in that vision casting party, I’m going to walk you through a vision casting experience where you are going to learn how to cast an intentional vision that works.

So if you want to be there, be sure to jump into the community ASAP. And with all of my announcements out of the way, the time is now to jump in to today’s episode. Now, today’s episode, in case you missed it, and the title is a hype girl chat, my favorite podcast episodes to record because it is my time to light the fire under your AISs to get the ball rolling towards living a life that you love and a life that you cannot shut up about. Now in today’s episode, we are going to be talking about why you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t cast a yearly vision. Now, last week’s episode, I talked you through a vision casting experience that’s super simple, super boiled down, but also super effective. And if you listen to that episode, or you got like halfway through the episode, and you’re like, I’m not casting a vision, and you turned it off, one rude, so rude now it’s finished my podcast episodes and to this podcast episode is for you. Because I know that there are people who listen to the show who are very much anti manifesting and vision casting and gratitude practicing and all of these things, which I totally get, like I really, really, really get because at one point in my life, I was the same way I was very much anti woo girl, I was very much like that ish doesn’t work, and I’m not doing it. But here’s the hard truth is that when I kind of stepped over my own pride, and got over myself, and I’m putting it frankly, and I tried these things for myself, man did my life change. Truly, casting a vision year after year has helped me to get to where I am today has kept me on track to continue to improve and work towards self improvement. And honestly, it has helped me to realize all of the good that I have in my life during those moments of time, or during the week or during the day where I’m like, Wow, this sucks. Like, we all have those moments, right. And casting a vision is part of that whoo girl mentality that you’re kind of you might feel like you’re wishing for things, or you’re just really hoping that things happen. But that’s not how we play. In this space. We’re all about honoring the wounds, right, honoring the wound, while also meeting that with action and following up with that with intentional action. So if you’re one of those people who is very much anti woo girl, I want you to listen, open up your mind, be a little bit accepting to new ideas, and listen to why not casting a vision is actually doing you a huge disservice in life. So before we can talk about why you’re doing yourself a disservice, if you’re not casting a vision, I really want you to get clear on what a vision is. Okay? So to me and my definition, and you might have heard something different or believe something different. A vision is kind of the the big idea and the big dream that you have for your life, right? This big, for lack of a better word vision for what you want to what you want your life to be. When you are 99 years old, and you look back on your life. You want your vision to be what you would want your life to be when you’re 99 years old, and you’re like laying in a bed, like looking up at the ceiling because we’re old and dusty, crusty. That’s what your vision is, right? So goals go into visions, goals are not visions, does that make sense? So to get to your vision, you will achieve multiple goals to get to that vision. So your life vision, your vision for life is essentially what you want the culmination of your life to be maybe where you want to live or the kind of car you want to drive, how you want to feel, the type of relationships you want to have. If you’re a business owner, kind of the outlook and the overall successes of your business. It all goes into your vision. Okay? So again, your vision is the culmination of what you want your life to be when you are 99 years old and dusty, crusty like laying on your deathbed and you think back like was my life something worth talking about? Was my life something something I would want to live again? That’s what your vision is. Okay. So sorry to interrupt the show my dude but I have some exciting news I need to share with you right now.

Now, if you’re someone who doesn’t cast a vision, how are you going to know when you’re old and dusty, crusty? If you achieved what you wanted to achieve, right? If you don’t sit down to ask yourself the question of where do I want to go? Or what do I want my life to be? How are you going to know whether or not you successfully made it happen? Right? It’s kind of the same thing when you ask yourself, How do you know how do I know if I had a successful year? Well, I don’t know. Because I never set any goals for myself. It’s the same thing you guys, when you fail to give yourself a vision, you fail to give yourself something to work towards. Right. And when we do that, we fail to give ourselves a bigger purpose. Right? purpose to me. And having a purpose is essentially giving yourself something to work towards. Right. For me currently, in this current season of life that I’m in my big purpose in life is to create a community and a brand and a business. That’s entire purpose is to help women hundreds 1000s of women to figure out what their purpose is to then take action on it and make their life something that they love. Okay, your purpose might be to raise three beautiful children into being upstanding citizens of our world who achieve big things. Or your purpose in this current season of life might be to be the best partner or spouse that you can be, or be the best teacher you can be to your students. Right. Your purpose can change and probably will change based off of your season of life. But without first knowing your purpose. How do you know what you’re working towards? Right? Our purpose gives us a direction. That is the same with a vision for our life. When we cast a vision, and we put that out there into the universe and we say, I want my life to look like this. I want it to include these things. I want these specific types of people to be part of it. I want these types of emotions and beliefs and feelings to be the cornerstones of my life. It gives us something to work on. It gives us an end goal, it gives us somewhere to go. And when you fail to give yourself that direction, that place to work towards. What are you doing with your life, right? How are you improving? What are you doing to design a life that you love? Where are you going? Right? You don’t know that unless you cast that vision, you just don’t that’s just the hard and fast truth of it. A vision gives us direction, just like a purpose gives us something to work towards. And here’s the truth you guys. And you might not believe this, if you’ve never done it before. If you’ve never casted a vision before, you’ve never reflected on your vision before. Our visions have such a huge impact on our life. And I said this in last week’s episode, and I’ll say it again, a lot of the things that I have in my life right now are things that I once had on my vision board. My favorite one to share with you guys is an office door. And let me explain. I know that it sounds really weird that I had an office door on my vision board. But when I first started my online business owner life and journey, I was working out of the dining room of my 900 square foot apartment. Literally, I did not have an office, I had converted our dining room into my office. But it was right next to the living room and right off of our kitchen again in our teeny tiny apartment. And that feels like so long ago. Now that I’m like really thinking about it. I’m like, wow, it seems like forever ago, I didn’t have an office door. I didn’t really have a place that was wholly mine. Whenever we had people come over, we had company and I was trying to work. I had to try and work with my company like staring at me from our living room or our kitchen because I didn’t have a door. And so I literally put on my vision board one year, an office with a door and when we moved and we bought our house I made sure that I made that happen because I had given myself something to work towards an office with a door. Okay. And that is the the impact of vision. It gives us something to work on. And over time as we continue to reflect and work towards it. We allow ourselves to say, oh my god, I did that. Oh my gosh, I made that hoping for myself, thank goodness because I’m so grateful for that experience or in my in my life that office door. Visions give us something to work on visions give us something to work towards my friend, how are you going to make progress if you don’t first know where you’re going? Your vision, casting a vision is your first step to getting the ball rolling towards making progress in your life. And it gives you a direction to go. And if you don’t first give yourself that direction, how are you going to know which way to go? Right. So think about it, mull over it marinate on it. As I often say, think about this episode. If you are someone who is very much anti, you know, casting a vision or you’ve never really thought it was important enough to dedicate the time to use this episode as something to consider as we work towards the end of the year, and work into the new year. And in whether or not you should give yourself that space to dream. And ask yourself where you want to go and cast that vision in the first place. And again, if you are so like lost on where you want to start, or where you should even start to to get cast the vision right? Consider joining the sunshine squad community because tomorrow again, at 730 December 15. Tomorrow, I promise you 7:30pm I’m going to be walking you through step by step how to cast an intentional vision of purpose and joy, and one that is rooted in what you want to do with your life.
