1. Do you start “here”?
2. Do you start “there”?
I think many of us would say to begin by talking about the glories that await us once we are there! I cannot wait to get there! There is going to be a great place! Let me tell you how good it will be once we get there and motivate you to move from where you are in order to join me on this journey of getting “there.”
The shock factor.
Many of you would say that, and many of you would be wrong.
Its better to begin with the here before you ever move to the there. It is better to cast the vision of how bad it would be if we stayed here. It takes work, but in order to help people change you need to make it extremely uncomfortable for them to ever believe they would want to stay “here”.
People often dislike change and in order to help launch them on that journey instead of telling them how glorious “there” will be you need to begin by telling them how awful it is “here”. You must help them realize that they will never be happy if they stay “here” and then lead them to see the glories of “there”.
No matter what the “here” or “there” is for you, this is where you must start in your vision casting.
