When you are going through your day to day operations, it’s easy to get bogged down by the daily details and lose sight of why you are doing what you are doing in the first place. If you are a heart-centered business owner, you most likely started your business to make a difference and an impact on the world with your products and services. You probably started with a big vision. That vision compelled you to start your business.
If you started your business out of a spontaneous moment or you started it because you have a particular skill set and your business just made sense, you might not be completely sure about your big vision of the world. If you are not sure about your big vision, observe the things that stir your passion. Are you always saving or rescuing animals? Do you find yourself donating to clean water projects? How does your business serve the world in a big way? For example, if you own a tutoring business, your efforts not only increase the self-esteem and achievement of individuals, but you are contributing to the world by increasing the contributions of the individuals you help. Your big vision might be ensuring we have a society where people reach their full potential and contribute to a better world.
When I say Big Vision, I mean something even beyond your personal or biz mission statement. Your Big Vision is the vision you have for the world. For example, my big vision for the world is that everyone does the work they love that truly inspires them. A Big Vision could be unconditional love, peace, clean water, healthy bodies, total well-being, wealth, a clean environment, and so on. It is what speaks to you on a deep level and it is what you would want for the world. It gives you a sense of higher purpose.

Whenever you do anything, whether it is sending an email, holding a free session, creating an article, speaking, planning, paying bills, etc… pause, and ask yourself, “How does this tie into my Big Vision?”
When you hold your Big Vision close, you can look to your Big Vision whenever you feel like you are losing momentum or when you feel frustrated and tired. When you don’t feel like making that important phone call, and you remember that you are in business for reasons beyond the small details, you will make that call. When you don’t feel like working on your next article or newsletter and you remember how your business fits into the big picture of your big vision, you will happily create that piece of content.
Follow this process:
- Notice activity (paying bills, creating social media posts, etc)
- Make the connection from the activity to your big vision.
- Is the activity connected? If yes, continue. If no, stop the action or tweak the action so it matches with your Big Vision.
- Let the passion for your big vision motivate your daily actions.
Your Big Vision will help fill you with enthusiasm and energy so you can continue to make a difference and build your success.Click to tweet
“The companies that survive longest are the one’s that work out what they uniquely can give to the world—not just growth or money but their excellence, their respect for others, or their ability to make people happy. Some call those things a soul.” Charles Handy
