In today’s episode we will talk about the importance of focus and getting everyone moving towards the same vivid vision or painted picture. We will share Cameron Herold’s tips in creating great visions and examples of some really cool vivid visions to help you create one for your company.

Creating a visual display of what you want actually does bring it to life. It has been proven what we focus on develops. When you create a vision board and place it in a space where you see it often, you end up doing short visualization exercises several times a day.

Visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. You have all heard or read about the book called The Secret, “The law of attraction is forming your entire life experience and it is doing that through your thoughts. When you are visualizing, you are emitting a powerful frequency out into the Universe.”

Whether you believe that or not, we know that visualization works. Olympic athletes have been using it for decades to improve performance, and Psychology Today reported that the brain patterns activated when a weightlifter lifts heavy weights are also similarly activated when the lifter just imagined (visualized) lifting weights.

So, what’s the big secret to creating a vision board that works? It’s simple: Your vision board should focus on how you want to feel, not just on things that you want. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to include the material stuff, too. However, the more your board focuses on how you want to feel, the more it will come to life.

This episode was inspired by an interview I completed recently with an amazing lady Sue Hrib. As well as being part of the Global Entrepreneurs Organisation, Sue Hrib became the CEO and founder of Signum Group in 1994. Since then the company leads in the integration of Oracle applications, namely Oracle EAM. Her efforts have landed her in the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America three times since 2008.

Over 20 years’ experience has shaped an expertise surrounding effective enterprise resource planning, deployment and strategy. Sue also partakes in executive consulting in implementing, managing and integrating maintenance and asset managing applications.

Sue is on the board of the Carter Centre as well as an advisory board member of the Women’s Leadership Exchange. Sue also serves on the committee board with Usher’s New Look, and is a mentor to some of the many students that are involved with the program.

Cameron Herold's Vivid Vision Tips: 

  • It’s important not to get caught up in the ‘how’ of things. Instead, dream big and worry about the ‘how’ later.
  • You’ll need to be free of the day-to-day worries of running your business. You need freedom to visualize your future
  • Get out of your office and go somewhere inspiring where you can let your mind wander (I wrote the Vivid Vision for my business from the hammock in my backyard).
  • Turn off your computer. No matter how much willpower you have, the temptation of email or web surfing will be a distraction
  • Get out of your comfort zone, think outside the box—choose whatever cliché works for you. Just be creative, even outlandish. You’ll be amazed at what you can come up with. It’s a sure fire way to create a fun, dynamic vision you and your employees will love to strive for.

Cameron has helped with hundreds of Vivid Visions in his career, and the ones that really stand out in my mind share a few common traits. They forgo all the mind-numbing corporate double speak and restrictive, creativity-killing metrics and get right to the heart of the exercise:

“What is really possible for my company?”
