If you’ve got kids then you might be familiar with this scenario: I seem to have 2 extremes of reaction when they bring home a project, which you just know, you’re going to have to help them with….
1. Cool project, can’t wait to do this with them
2. Urgh! I have to do boring homework again, I thought I was past this
My daughter’s most recent project was ‘India – 70 Years Since Independence’. On reading this I jumped straight into reaction number one – “Yay! We can watch ‘Ghandi’ together”. As far as I could see there was no better research – three hours of watching the hugely talented Ben Kingsley playing out an epic story, whilst cuddled up on the sofa with my daughter.
I’d watched the film years ago and loved it, and relished at the thought of watching it again. I cried just as much at the end as I did the first time. SPOILER ALERT - He gets shot! The tragedy of a life lived in peace that ended so violently, but having made a huge impact on the world that will never be forgotten.
What really struck me was Ghandi’s unerring vision for kicking out the British Empire and leading India to independence. All done through inspired, creative, peaceful means over years of dedication to the cause of civil rights and freedom.
It then had me reflect on people who make a difference in the world. They all have one thing in common; they have…
A Crystal Clear Vision
…and they follow that vision through whatever creative means, unswayed by the twists and turns of day to day life.
The years can seem to go by very fast, especially if you have kids. The dream of what we once wished for (if we can even recall it) can get lost in living day to day, bogged down in the minutiae of life.
So if you haven’t ever created a vision for living your most inspired life, then now is the time. Paradoxically the more we think about the bigger picture of what we want to create in this world, the more authentic and in touch we are with our true selves. There is a ‘True Self’ in all of us.
So if you'd like to take a leaf out of Ghandi's book and put on your metaphorical sandals and loin cloth to step into your truest, highest self...
And want help on getting crystal clear on your vision, along with clear guidance on the steps you need to take to make it happen…
