The 7 Vision Categories For Success In Life and Business May 21, 2007

Posted by Darin Persinger in Business Planning, Coaching, Real Estate, Sales.

Awhile back I had the awesome opportunity to see Jack Canfield speak at the Keller Williams MegaManagement Camp, in Austin, TX. Jack Canfield is the author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living Your Dreams, The Power of Focus: How to Hit Your Business, Personal and Financial Targets with Absolute Certainty, and his newest book, The Success Principles(TM): How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.

Jack walked us through some amazing exercises displaying the power of mind over body. He shared with us his struggle to get Chicken Soup for the Soul published. Rejected 144 times by publishers, until finally someone believed in his product.  He gave some incredible examples of people dealing with adversity and overcoming.

He then share his Seven Vision Categories. He moved very quickly through the categories just asking us to write down one goal in each category. Not to worry about the how or why, just the desire. I will offer up some questions to help with the process of your goals but he was looking for just one simple answer. Here are the categories he shared with us:

1. Financial

What is your financial goal for the year? How much money do you want to make? How much income would you like to earn? Or how much money would you like to save? What would you like your Net Worth to be?

2. Business

What are you professional goals? How many families do you want to help achieve homeownership? Do you want to be the Top Listing agent in your office? Do you want to double your production? Do you want to become an area expert? How many people do you want to help enhance their lives through real estate? Help become investors? How much of your business do you want to be referral based generated?

3. Fun Time

What do you want to do with your time off? What do you want to do that will bring you enjoyment? What makes you laugh? What is stress free to you? When and where can you leave it all behind?

4. Health

With out your health nothing else matters. What would make you feel better? More exercise? Eat healthier? No fast food? Drink more water? Limit the cups of coffee? Join a health club? Walk more? How can you get more energy? More sleep?

5. Relationship

 What can you do to enhance your relationships with your loved ones? What can you do to be 100% where you are at? More family time? Game night with kids? Date night with significant other? Movie night? Weekend getaways? Start a family tradition? Renew a family tradition?

6. Personal

What can you do that is just about you? What can you do to be a little selfish? What makes you happy personally? What is a hobby you love? What is something that you have always wanted to do? Something you would love to learn to do? What would bring you joy and fulfillment?

7. Legacy

 What can you do to give back? What leaves your mark? How can you enhance the lives of those less fortunate? What do you want to be remembered for? What is a charity you want to donate time to? How can you make a difference?

After you have finished the one goal in each category then you can go back and get detailed and figure out the how to make that happen.

What would your life look like if you did focus on your goal in each category and that was your priority? What would you personal and business life look like? What would it feel like to hit your financial goal? What would it feel like to achieve professional success? What would it feel like to have great, fun, personal time? What would it feel like to make a difference?

Best to you with your Seven Vision Categories!
