7 Steps to a Passionate Life

Do you head off to work with a sigh, instead of a sense of eagerness?

Let Danielle show you the 7 steps to job heaven!

It's your life. Be passionate about it!

Step 1: VISION

In order to find that ideal job, you really need to know yourself very well. The job has to be a good fit for who you are. If it isn't you will easily lose interest and your employer might also very well lose interest in you. So the first stage is to help you figure out what your values are and especially, what your strengths are. These are the personal attributes that make you unique and special. At VCI, we help you define these basic elements. Once that is done, you can begin to think about your vision for the world. Next, we work together to outline the goals that will help you realize that vision, from the large to the very small steps. We work side-by-side with you, encouraging you all the way, so that you flourish and meet your goals.

Step 2: DETERMINATION

Have you ever wanted something so much that you refuse to give up before getting it? What was it you wanted, and why did you want it so much? What was the result? Did you get it in the end? What happened as a result?

In this step, VCI works with you to help you realistically achieve your goals. Most times people fail in their goals because they don't hold themselves accountable. Being accountable to yourself, or to your job, fosters motivation. We feel that by using the "buddy system" at the beginning, it creates this necessary accountability. Until you feel ready to do this on your own, we will be here to help you stay on target.

Step 3: FOCUS

Achieving your goals means being organized! VCI can help you manage your time and prioritize your tasks. More than that, we help you figure out what's standing in the way of your reaching your goals. Together, we'll examine the behaviours and issues that trip you up and put in place practical solutions for overcoming difficult situations.

Step 4: OPTIMISM

Is your glass half full or half empty? Do you wake up in the morning expecting the sun to shine? If not, what are some ways you can motivate yourself to keep at it every day? VCI has some useful exercises (your own personal mantra, or some special visualizations and guided imagery) that will help keep you on track. Optimism plays a large role in feeling productive, achieving our objectives and having a sense of deeper satisfaction at work and at home. Vision Coach International is here to help you see the glass as half full.

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."

Sir Winston Churchill

Step 5: TAKING RESPONSIBILITY

Motivation doesn't always come easily, but VCI has some simple and effective techniques to help you stay focused on – and achieve! – your goals. We have some tips and tools on how to stay motivated. These are universal and will work for anyone. Some are very simple. Yet others are designed to make you accountable on a daily basis. These tips and tools will facilitate self-responsibility for your actions. Ultimately this will put you in control, enabling you to meet your personal objectives.

Step 6: AWARENESS

The purpose of life is to learn and grow every day. When we raise our consciousness of ourselves and our place in the world, we can begin to understand and accept ourselves. This act of awareness increases our self-esteem. You'll laugh. You'll feel a renewed sense of joy and abundance in your life. With time, and using specific tools such as guided imagery and emotional intelligence, you too can develop a practice of becoming more aware... and enjoying life!

Step 7: LETTING GO

Forgiveness and letting go are a central part of moving on in life. By getting beyond the emotional baggage that each and every one of us carries with us, we promote better relationships and positive growth. It isn't always easy, but when we can let go we affirm the fact that we always have choice in our life and our actions. At VCI, we make it easier for our clients to be fully present in the moment and to live life passionately. Using guided imagery and journaling we tap into your emotions and help you understand them. When you do this, you can free yourself. This feeling of liberation can be one of the most fulfilling things in our lives, and VCI is committed to your new passionate life!
