The Story: The Sculptor's True Mastery

How does a master sculptor work? When he is commissioned to create a sculpture, he begins by envisioning how he would like the sculpture to look like when he finishes sculpting it.

The next thing the sculptor does is to look for the right stone to create that sculpture. 

Instead of looking for the perfect stone to start with, he goes through the stonemason’s shop looking for the stone that resembles most with what he envisioned. The stone whispers him what it wants to become and he knows what he wants too. 

He looks for the piece of stone that needs the least chiseling.

After he found that stone, he always starts his sculpting by picking up his hammer and chisel and considering where the last polishing has to be done. Then he mimics all the sculpting in reverse until he finds the first spot where he actually starts chiseling the stone.

The Practical Shortcut: How to transform Your Vision into Action Steps

“If you don’t know where you are going, no road is going to be good for you.”
(Lewis Carroll)

There are many ways to get what you’ve decided you want. It helps you to decide what kind of impact do you want to have, how do you want to help people for you to get what you want.

What is that dream you have that, if you were to make it come true in this reality, would give you the most fulfillment?

To help you answer this question, think of the time you were a child and what you wanted to become when you grew up. Why? Because – wait for it… – now you grew up and you can transform into reality your dreams. It’s not about becoming exactly what you wanted to be in your childhood, it’s about the reason behind. That’s the essence and that essence is something empowering for you, even now.

Let me give you my own example:

When I was a child, I wanted to be a magician, to make magic and make people happy. Growing (up), I realized that true magic is when people create their own happiness and I’m very excited to do exactly that. By what I do, I actually guide people to live in authentic joy on a daily basis.

Have you ever heard of backtracking? The process of going from the end to start? Yea, that’s the one. Here is how you can do it:

After you defined your vision/ end-result, do the following:

  • Define the essential things you can take so that you know your vision has been made into reality. The essential thing here is the “end result”, what you want to do/get. Just for the purpose of this stage, separate the means from the end and just define your vision/ end-result.
  • Go from the last step you need to do in order to make your vision into reality back to the first one without focusing too much on details. Start with the end-result in mind. 
  • Then ask yourself this question: “What is it that I require to complete this step?” (You’ll see an example of this kind of back-tracking below from my own experience).
  • Answer the question “What is it that I require to complete this step?” and then write down your answer. 
  • Take the answer you just wrote down and ask again the same question: “What is it that I require to complete this step?” 
  • Continue to do so until you reach your present circumstances.
    • Each answer should be in a form of a single sentence. You’ll come back to them to add details after you’ve completed the steps that came before.
  • The last step you identified is the first step in which you can take action. If needed, add more details and define what exactly you want to do to complete this first step.

Keep in mind the following:

You can use this way of thinking for any kind of vision, whether it’s long term or short term, personal or professional.

Defining your vision is powerful because it engages your unconscious mind and all the energies you need to fulfill it.

I’m not going to promise you that there won’t be a bumpy ride. Instead, I promise you that everything you encounter in your life after you defined your vision is a way to help you get all the resources you need to get there. Even the challenges, obstacles or the parts you don’t like are there to help you, even if you don’t understand at first why.

Depending on how you progress, there will be a time when you won’t have parts you don’t like. It’s possible. Just keep in mind that all progress and evolution is possible without fear, suffering, drama, and struggle!
