What’s in a Vision?

How aware are you that you are living your life according to a vision? No matter how you answer that question, the fact remains that your life today is the result of the vision—conscious or unconscious—you had for yourself yesterday. Tomorrow’s life will be the result of your vision today.

Take a moment to write the vision that has been guiding your life so far. How do you feel about that vision? How about a vision tune-up or overhaul?

Creating, fine-tuning, or changing your vision completely is not a complicated process, although it does require time, honesty, and Soul listening.

First, give yourself the gift of time. Preparing your vision could take an hour, a week, or longer, depending on how clear and detailed you want to get. Set aside time by making a vision appointment with yourself.

Second, answer the following questions honestly and completely.

  • What inspires you? Look at the people and moments in your life that filled you with the most joy, that brought the most passion.
  • What beliefs do you currently have about yourself? Examine those ideas and beliefs that you have had “forever” and “know” are true. How true are they for you now?
  • What beliefs do you want to have about yourself? To change an old belief, you need a new belief to take its place. Having a list of new beliefs will help you in future vision reexaminations.
  • What values are most important to you? List your values in order of importance.
  • What intentions do you have for your life? Examine goals you want to accomplish and your life purpose.

Listen carefully to how your soul feels about your answers to these questions. You are creating YOUR vision, not one that will fulfill the dreams that your friends or relatives have for you. Your vision fulfills the dreams and purpose that your Soul has for you.

Third, write your vision. Look over your answers and create a vision statement. Use first person present tense to phrase your vision statement. Your vision is NOW.

Fourth, speak your vision daily. Choose a daily time to read your vision aloud. Hearing it will reinforce it both consciously and subconsciously.

Fifth, reexamine your vision regularly. Your vision is dynamic. Use these steps again to recreate, refine, or renew your vision. :o)

person in the world is the person who has sight, but no vision.”
