Map Out Your Future

I was getting ready to head over to meet a client and I found myself typing their address into my phone and being offered several ways of getting there with their estimated time and if there were hazards along the way.

The choices all had different obstacles requiring me to weigh the pros and cons of which route to take.

Take the faster route, but I can already see stopped traffic indicated with a hard red line or do I take the longer route, but being short on time and run the risk of being late to my destination?

The map is clear and defined.

It lays out all of the ways from point A to point B.

So many considerations in how and when to proceed and what you may experience along the way.

Some of it can be frustrating (like a last minute lane closure) or it can wind through beautiful scenery which expands your gratitude.

Without the map, you’re lost in getting to a new destination.

You’re left worrying how you’ll even show up because you are unable to see what your options are in taking the journey in arriving to your destination.

You may doubt yourself and feel stuck and left without options.

Lacking clarity leaves you ruminating on all the “grass is greener” scenarios.

You waste your time wondering about what to do, when you can make the choice in visioning on where you want to go right from the start.

Creating a visual representation of what you want is your map of what you want.

It’s a concrete way of laying down all of your options for what you want to achieve and it provides you a visual representation of where you want to go.

When you create a vision map of your goals, you can then start planning out on the routes you want to take to get to your destination, regardless how long the journey takes you.

The first step is creating your vision map, so you can start seeing what routes show up for you!
