It’s been very difficult getting any work done this past few days due to the building noise coming from the construction of a new house next door. And yesterday, I finally let it get to me.
No matter how hard I tried, how many deep breaths into my heart I took, I still could not focus on the article I was writing, so I ended up exploding in anger and frustration. You see, yesterday was a public holiday here in South Africa, and there should have been NO construction going on in the first place!
To cool off, I decided to go for a walk. This always helps when nothing else will – I think because walking forces your brain’s two hemispheres to communicate better. And it was while walking through yet another empty, and quiet construction site that a very powerful insight suddenly hit me…
The difference between the house being built next door, and this one here is that my neighbors have a very clear and specific vision about the house they are building and what will be required if they want to be living in their new home before the end of the year.
Isn’t this exactly how many of us react when we see someone achieve their dreams and goals in record time? We get angry, frustrated and even jealous as we wonder, what is it about them that’s so special that they get to manifest their ideal life, while we’re still trying to figure out what it is we truly want?
Helen Keller, the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelors of Arts degree once said, “The only thing worst than being blind is having sight and no vision.” I believe that what she meant by this challenging quote is that not having a clear and specific vision or purpose for your life, and a sense of urgency to go with it, is worst than being blind.
How many of us move through our fast-paced, “always on”, busy lives merely reacting to whatever is going on in your work and your life, solving problem after problem, responding to phone calls, emails and attending endless meetings, but feeling like we’ve not accomplished much by the time we’re back in bed? This is the blindness that Helen Keller is referring to.
The only way out of this blindness is to switch from the victim/reaction channel you’ve been in, and become the owner/creator of your own life experience by getting a clear and specific vision or purpose for the life you’re creating and what will be required to turn it into a reality.
In my experience as a coach, the most effective way to do this is to begin by asking yourself a very simple, yet powerful question:
What would I LOVE to create and WHY?
This is where creation always starts. And unless you begin there, you’ll continue to walk through your days blindly, and instead of creating your own vision, you’ll be helping others create their one. Which side of the television set do you want to be in? Do you want to “tell-a-vision”, or do you want to watch someone else’s vision?
In my Manifesting from the Heart online course, I explain in detail the process required to start connecting with the vision contained within your own heart, or as I like to call it, your HeartVision. This program, complete with audios, videos, and worksheets, is perfect for you if you want to learn on your own time and at your own pace, a proven system for reality manifestation that uses the intelligence, wisdom, and power of your heart. You can read about this program here.
Another option, if you live in Cape Town, South Africa, is to attend my upcoming The Way of the Heart Intensive on October 16 – 19, 2015. During this 3-day training, you’ll learn not only learn my Manifesting from the Heart System, but you’ll walk away with your own blueprint, strategy and action plan to start manifesting the life you know in your heart you came here to live.
If you’re ready to end 2015 with a BANG, with absolute clarity, about who you came here to be, and walk away with a new set of skills, a strategy, and plan of action, to manifest your heart’s desires in 2016, then I’d love for you to join me in this training, which is part of the complete Heart Intelligent Leader Program.
If you register before October 1st, you’ll take advantage of the Early Bird Discount of ZAR3,000 for The Way of the Heart Intensive (October 16-19, 2015) or ZAR7,5000 for the complete Heart Intelligent Leader program.

For years I’ve explored many systems of personal development and growth, and what I managed to put together for the Heart Intelligent Leader program is really the best of the best of what I know really works.
And, I know this simply because of the transformation my own clients have experienced, but because of who I’ve become as the result of doing this work.
So, what would you LOVE to create before 2015 comes to an end? And, what would you LOVE to create in 2016 and beyond?
