Annie - Life Visioning Questions
Annie, I'm intrigued by the idea of recording my life vision with music backing and listening to it on my ipod.
Right now I have a regular rotation of motivational speakers I listen to on my iPod. After a few years of doing this, I now find myself not listening to them as much because I already know this stuff on an intellectual level, and it becomes repetitive. And also because, while being successful in the eyes of many, I still have not achieved the results I want, while many others have in that span of time.
What I want is to achieve the results.
I have a couple of questions:
1. What is the significance of hearing one's goals in one's own voice?
2. Do repetitive listenings increase achievements of goals?
3. Why do some business ventures fail, when clearly the owner's intent was to succeed?

1. Your own voice is THE MOST BELIEVABLE VOICE there is. I struggled with that at first, but then though about my own negative self-talk. When you think about what you tell yourself in your head on a daily basis and how you believe it and internalize it...that should help makes sense to WHY your own voice is so powerful. (Your thoughts....Geeze, I never lose weight. Why does this always happen to me? I'm just not lucky. etc etc)
2. The repetition is like putting it in front of your face on a daily basis. I suggest listening to your recorded lifevision once a day, but I will admit that on weekends it's hit or miss for me. But I am very consistent on work days. (I'm averaging 6X per week and my recording is about 32 minutes (average Lifevision recording is about 15-18). You don't need to listen to it more than once a day.
3. There's dozens of answers to this questions, but let's examine just a couple.
a) How concrete were you with the details of your business venture? My own LifeVision business section seems to some almost like a business plan. (4 pages single-spaced typed) If the business venture ends up like a small paragraph, how could you possibly visualize it in great detail? Affirmations & intent alone don't make a business succeed. It boils down to action. So the business section is FULL of details that inspire and motivate you to take concrete action in building the business.
I can't emphasize this enough and if you're up for a short consultation, I would be happy to spend a few minutes discussing this via phone rather than typing it.
b) other reasons include lack of the BIG WHY, emotional baggage that you haven't gotten rid of, lack of follow-through, don't' have a clue what you're doing and truly need to hire a business coach, numbers need to be realistic. (For example, "I am a massage therapist and make $300,000 a year" doesn't cut it if you don't own a massage school, and/or own a practice where other massage therapists give you a piece of it and you only charge $80 an hour). Your business venture in your lifevision must be backed up with the WHY, The WHEN,By When, the HOW and the business plan.
I am VERY thorough in coaching an action plan for a business. The fluffy intention is just not going to cut it. Business coaches, business plans, motivation etc are essential.
let me know if you want to talk for a minute via phone and I'll share a few examples of excellent business lifevisions.

Thank you for your reply
Annie, thank you for your reply. I will send an email to your business website, referring to this thread. I talked to some people about getting some coaching, and they said it was woo-woo stuff, but I disagree. I do have a good idea about what I want, and have had vision boards, goals written, etc. for some time, but I seem to have hit a ceiling.
Part of it is I have limiting beliefs about the ceiling for sales of my software. I do about 125K in sales per year, and would like to get to 250K. 250K would get me in the house I want, etc. I did speak with a couple of rounds of Angel Investors, and have had offers of startup capital. However, these offers left me very depressed, as part of getting financing is hearing all the doubts and negative thoughts of these investors. It put me in a bit of a tailspin. And I'm not sure if I want to take money and have to give away equity, and now have a partner. I do sell primarily in two languages, and over half my sales in are South America. My plans are to localize in the other major languages (localization built into the software) and do online product launches in Chinese, Japanese, German, Arabic, etc. The kicker (and I arrived at this after some meditating) is that instead of direct sales, I want to open up a massive affiliate, VAR, and reseller network. I'll give 50% as commission, and funnel all sales through resellers. If I do all of that, surely sales can at least double?

I personally don't think that investment capital is the answer (to hardly anything). There are LOTS of creative ways of creating capital without borrowing it.
Unfortunately, the things you typed in your last post gave me MORE questions, rather than answering them. Feel free to send me a PM or email (or call). you know my website....(below)
