MVP stands for my Morning Visual Practice and is something I started over a year ago. The process has changed over time until I found a set routine that works for me.
A morning visual practice is exactly how it sounds. It is a way to start your morning with your vision on your mind.
I have tried several different tools, techniques and even timelines for myself and today I want to share with you what works for me.
Why do I have a MVP
I started my morning visual practice or my MVP because, at the time, I was working with an energy healer and I needed to start flipping a lot of my mindset on its head.
It was the first time I had chosen to work with someone on a topic I knew would be key to me succeeding. As we worked together she built out a practice for me, that I did every morning.
This practice was focused on changing my mindset.
During this time I was a mediocre positive person. I had some positive thoughts and some negative thoughts.
My negative thoughts had a lot of power over me and were taking over.
Morning Visual Practice
When I first started doing this practice it was all about Abraham-Hicks Focus Wheel, journaling a letter to my Angels and writing out a few other “things” that carried weight for me before I meditated.
I would wake up first thing and go run and after my husband would leave for the day I would sit down and start my practice.
I have tried over the last year to make this my first thing but my mind and body just don’t operate that way.
I have to focus on my number one task first.
So, even today as I write this at 4am my MVP is slotted for 5:30.
What is my practice now
As I have grown a lot over the last few years things that once carried weight no longer do. I have had to make huge strides, in fact I would say quantum leaps, in different areas of my life.
Today, my practice looks a lot different.
It starts with writing out my 90 day vision and then I write out my Be, Do, Have list. I do some forgiveness work and affirmations and then I open up my business journal and read my 90 day milestone goals, read my rules to keep them fresh in my mind and read my long term vision.
But, I don’t stop there.
I then close my eyes and for however long it takes I vision myself having it ALL now. This has been a key change for me.
I then meditate for at least 10 minutes everyday.
I do this every morning around 5:30 am. That is after I get 90 minutes of work in from 4am to 5:30.
The focus wheel I once used everyday now comes out when I need it. If I find I am struggling with something directly related to my mindset I break out my notebook and write out a focus wheel. I even still write letters to my angels but now I typically do this at night. It becomes more of a free flow process of chatting with my angels.
How has this made a difference for me
I start each day with my number one task and that gives me uninterrupted momentum. However, having my MVP in the morning, before my day with the family really starts, allows me to get my vision on my mind.
How often do you let your vision slip from your mind? How often do you find yourself working on projects that are unrelated to the vision you have?
It happens to all of us, which is why I keep my practice going daily.
You cannot rely on your vision once a month, or sitting on your vision board to keep you motivated.
You have to discipline yourself to place your vision in front of you everyday with intention.
This makes the greatest difference.
You then start to see where you are working on tasks that are unrelated to that vision. You start to think like a CEO who has somewhere to go.
And, you do because you have given yourself a destination.
Using this method I have reached more goals in a faster timeline than I ever thought possible. I have said no to more things with less guilt and I have spent my time more wisely.
Take a look at your vision practice, do you have one? Find out what is working for you and what is not.
Create time first thing in the morning to start practicing your MVP. This doesn’t have to look like mine.
Start with journaling out your vision for ten minutes everyday and let the practice grow with you.
