To excel in life and business you have to have a vision of something that excites you, drives you. Something you can stick to, even if it's just for the short term. You need to have goals regularly that you can achieve and also goals that you work towards. You should align your vision with your passions and morals. This will help you to wake up with purpose each morning, ready to tackle the day and achieve your goals, even if it's just one step at a time.
Everyone Has a Vision
When you create this vision for where you want your business to go, it will help you to overcome any obstacle that happens to pop up in the way of your path to health, wealth, happiness, and personal freedom. It will help you to stay focused and on the right track.
Whether you're already employed at a job, or you're working for yourself, you have to have a vision of what you want from your business. Even if you're trying to align yourself with what's happening in your personal life, the vision should apply across the board. You need to have an exciting vision in order for you to truly feel like you have purpose in life.
Every Vision Has Challenges
With that excitement comes another challenge. How do you contain your excitement and align your goals so that they don't end up overwhelming you with long nights and weekends working? I know that overwhelming feeling of finding direction and balance in life can be a good thing, and also a bad thing. If you truly find the right thing and get your focus in line, it can create a level of “good” stress.
Good stress will fuel your motivation and keep your passionate towards bettering yourself. The problem with this is that too much too quickly can result in unnecessary stress in the form of a tight stomach, a more heavily beating heart, and so much more. Have you ever actually taken notice to the way that you body reacts to your different forms of excitement or stress, whether good or bad? When you start to get overwhelmed from what you think is good stress, can quickly turn bad.
Some of the energy is good, but it needs to be channeled in the right ways and then utilized only when you need it to give you that extra boost. So if you don't have a well planned vision or outlook at where you want to go with your life and business, all that good stress can turn bad real fast through anxiety.
Finding The Right Mindset And Channeling Stress
Alright, so with all of that said, the following tactic is an incredibly powerful way to actually channel that energy. Our focus here should already be to create positive stress and levels of excitement.
So now you should channel that energy to become more productive and reduce the general “wear and tear” that this sense of excitement can have on your body. So, what does this special trick consist of? Simple breathing technique. All you traders out there need to pay attention to this, lol. I know that I have had to do this many times lately with these wild markets and economic times... But I digress, back to breathing...
Now before you laugh, which isn't a bad thing, just bare with me here. When we feel stressed, our breathing usually becomes shallower. We tend to start breathing faster and less deep, and then ultimately only use roughly 20% of the oxygen in our lungs.
The result here is actually two-fold:
You only circulate a very limited amount of the oxygen that's in your body.
Your body goes into “defense mode” because of the shallower breathing which is often a signal of danger to our natural instincts.
To combat that scenario from fully taking over, you can simply try to stop what you're doing for just a few seconds. From there, just start breathing deep full breaths by inhaling slowly and rising (or puffing) your belly or chest out.
Put your hand on the top of your stomach and feel as it rises up and down. Breathe deeply, and slowly for about 10 seconds or so. Doing this sends signals to the body that the “coast is clear” and everything is okay.
This will allow you to hopefully take better control of the situation before it gets the better of you. In turn, you'll be able to maintain in your high-productivity zone of focus and direction. The zone in which you can actually clearly think and act rationally towards situations. At this point you may be thinking about how stupidly easy this is. And yes, it is! It's amazing the change in mood when you just stop and take a deep breath.

Follow Your Vision
Visualizing where you want your life to be heading is the first step in knowing how to conduct your business.
