On Beating Dead Horses or Speaking the Vision

I was recently listening to “This is Your Life” by Michael Hyatt.  The blog that I am referring to is on leaders creating vision .  One of the best ways to do this is by speaking the vision until you are sick of it and until your people are glowing white hot from hearing it.

The same goes whether you have a group, or if you are trying to lead yourself.  You have to constantly speak the vision until it becomes part of who you are, and then you have to do it.  And then you repeat the cycle the next day.

Now this is a process, and like any process there is a time lag, and your mileage may vary depending up on your level of motivation or frustration you’ve had with achieving your goals lately.  The point is regardless of how painful a process seems on the front end, you are only going to achieve critical mass by sticking to the process.  According to the book “The Millionaire Fastlane” people who are on the sidewalk or who are driving in the slow lane live for events, rather than processes.  You have to retool your thinking to get to where you love processes, and hate events.  Or at least you value them with respect to the process.

Sometimes you will get tired of speaking the vision.  If you have people in your life that you are responsible for, they may get tired of it, or pretend like the are tired of it.  The point is, you need to keep speaking the vision to yourself, and to those around you so that way you will start speaking it internally and it just becomes part of you, and then you do what is necessary to get it done.


Have you ever gotten tired of speaking your personal vision to yourself?  If you did, what did you to get it back?  Please comment below.
