Shownotes

A walk through early morning fog proved to be very enlightening.

"If you don't know where you are going, you won't get there" is the theme of this show.

I admitted I was overdue to capture my desires, goals, and dreams for the next stage of my life and ensure they are vivid and visible everyday as I achieve them.

The most successful process for me is a combination of visualization and journaling exercises, mind mapping, affirmations, imagery, and strategic planning.

I created a proprietary process is called a Visual Encore Plan that I have been refining for more than fifty years of a lifetime of adventures and accomplishments.

Transcripts

Speaker:

Hello, and welcome back to our corner of the Universe...

Speaker:

and today's weather forecast is cloudy with a chance of insight.

Speaker:

Yes!

Speaker:

This morning, on my ritual sunrise walk, which starts out so that I leave

Speaker:

home well before the sun is scheduled to rise and I can get to a certain

Speaker:

point on the lake and witness the sun rising in all its glory and majesty.

Speaker:

It was so foggy, no one was witnessing the sun.

Speaker:

The world felt fluffy.

Speaker:

I was walking in cotton balls for a while and it was quieter than usual, as the

Speaker:

fog was muffling the sounds around me.

Speaker:

With nothing to look at, I was alone in my head with my thoughts.

Speaker:

As I'm doing my morning walk, I'm meditating in my head.

Speaker:

I'm repeating an affirmation.

Speaker:

In fact, I did an episode not too long ago about that, where I shared

Speaker:

my whole process for starting your day with a walking meditation, and

Speaker:

I shared my Abundance Affirmation.

Speaker:

If you'd like a copy of that, go back to Episode 48 and the

Speaker:

information is in the show notes.

Speaker:

Go to FreeGiftFromIsabel.com and you can download the Abundance Affirmation.

Speaker:

When I'm not meditating or just enjoying the scenery, I'm listening to

Speaker:

an audio book or a podcast like this.

Speaker:

This morning, I was just alone in my head, amused with the fact

Speaker:

that the conditions outside were mirroring the conditions in my head...

Speaker:

Foggy.

Speaker:

It reminded me of being lost.

Speaker:

When they say lost in your thoughts they weren't kidding.

Speaker:

The expression, " If you don't know where you're going, you won't get there!"...

Speaker:

Also came up for me.

Speaker:

And that's when the light came on in my brain.

Speaker:

What I needed was some clarity, a clear vision...

Speaker:

To remove all this fogginess and indecisiveness, and sit down and

Speaker:

create a new Visual Encore Plan...

Speaker:

a new vision board...

Speaker:

for this next part of my life.

Speaker:

A lot of change has happened in my life in the last year, which I've

Speaker:

been sharing with you, and it stands to reason that has changed me.

Speaker:

I've been evolving and I have been, I hope, growing in positive ways.

Speaker:

I feel different now and I am different than the ME a

Speaker:

year or five or 10 years ago.

Speaker:

And more importantly, I have a strong desire to be a different me in the future.

Speaker:

I want to be a better me.

Speaker:

I want to continue to grow and evolve in positive ways, so

Speaker:

that I can help more people...

Speaker:

and that I can Lift as I Climb along my journey, and have a greater

Speaker:

impact and live my legacy now.

Speaker:

Live my legacy while I am alive to impact it, and influence it, and enjoy it.

Speaker:

That's why I also shared a podcast episode about Live Your Eulogy...

Speaker:

Because it's all part of that...

Speaker:

Don't wait until you're dead, for somebody to try and figure out

Speaker:

something nice to say about you or how you've left your mark on the world.

Speaker:

Live it now.

Speaker:

All of that was a reminder to me that I need to create a brand new vision and to

Speaker:

go through my own process, the Visual Encore Plan, create a new vision board...

Speaker:

Check back in on my values...

Speaker:

Cause they can change, as we change and grow.

Speaker:

What are my motivations?

Speaker:

What's my purpose?

Speaker:

What's the why that will keep me going...

Speaker:

Even when times are a little foggy.

Speaker:

Be very strategic with...

Speaker:

Okay...

Speaker:

If that's the vision that I have, that I'm aspiring to...

Speaker:

Then how am I going to get there?

Speaker:

How do I become the person that I need to be to fulfill that vision?

Speaker:

I've been doing vision boards and versions of vision boards and visualization

Speaker:

techniques for more than 50 years.

Speaker:

I started as that single teen mom, with catalogs and magazines, when I didn't

Speaker:

have money to buy any of those things.

Speaker:

I was still marking those pages and cutting them out and dreaming of the day

Speaker:

that I would be making enough money to buy those things for my little family.

Speaker:

I continued to read about, and observe, other people that were

Speaker:

using vision boards and the visualization process successfully.

Speaker:

People like Oprah, like Matthew McConaughey; people that have

Speaker:

accomplished a great deal in their life and continue to...

Speaker:

Did so, because they purposely had a path and a vision that they were pursuing.

Speaker:

Over time, I also recognized that there was a synergy between

Speaker:

visualization, vision board creation, and in business strategic planning.

Speaker:

I didn't leave to chance where my company was going in the next year, and we

Speaker:

spent a lot of time putting together a carefully thought out plan for how we

Speaker:

were going to grow, who we were going to become, what were the resources that we

Speaker:

needed, and we followed that strategic plan along the way so we could go...

Speaker:

Check, check, check.

Speaker:

It was a great day for me when I realized that if you married

Speaker:

the two processes together...

Speaker:

personal visualization and visioning, with strategic planning...

Speaker:

That I learned in business...

Speaker:

I could create a Visual Encore Plan for my own life and for how

Speaker:

I wanted it to turn out and where I was going and who I would be.

Speaker:

That's the process that I created, and I used for myself...

Speaker:

Used with my staff, used with clients and friends...

Speaker:

And then the pandemic happened and like a lot of people, I realized that you

Speaker:

could have a greater reach and a greater impact by making good things accessible

Speaker:

to many people by putting that content online and offering it up to people

Speaker:

whenever they needed it, wherever they were, whatever time zone they were in...

Speaker:

I created the online version of the Visual Encore Plan.

Speaker:

That's what I'm going to sit down and use again for myself because I know it works!

Speaker:

I know it works, I have the proof many times over of when I created

Speaker:

that translation of my subconscious desires with the goals I had for

Speaker:

having an impact in my life...

Speaker:

Magic happened...

Speaker:

Magic happened, again and again.

Speaker:

I would love to share this with you...

Speaker:

If you are at a juncture in your life where you're not sure where

Speaker:

you're going, or you feel like...

Speaker:

" Hey!

Speaker:

There's something much more meant for me...

Speaker:

I believe I have a purpose, and I have the passion to do it...

Speaker:

But I'm not quite sure how it's all going to turn out."

Speaker:

I encourage you to try the Visual Encore process and see just exactly

Speaker:

how that will increase your enjoyment and the probability of checking

Speaker:

off those items on your board.

Speaker:

Join me as we create our encore plans together, and have that

Speaker:

vision in front of us for a great future, and we'll Lift as we Climb.

Speaker:

If you're interested in knowing more about the process and what's included...

Speaker:

Check it out at www.VisualEncorePlan.com and I'll include the

Speaker:

link in the show notes.

Speaker:

I'd be really excited to see a snapshot, a photograph of what you create when

Speaker:

you complete your Visual Encore Plan.

Speaker:

I'll be sharing more about my journey and celebrating with
