The Power of Visioning
It’s persistent. It’s nagging. It’s that little feeling in the pit of your stomach that tells you there is something “more” that awaits you. Maybe you are just not sure what that something really means. If this sounds and feels familiar, you need to understand the power of visioning and how it can help you realize and reach your goals.
What is a Vision?
A vision is a mental image, a daydream, or the imagination that allows you to think about your passion in terms of what you want to accomplish in the future – without limitations. Your vision is yours alone and your vision is powerful. Vision is also always about the FUTURE and never the past.
Having a clear vision helps you pursue those dreams and achieve your goals. A vision that is clear will open your mind to the endless possibilities of the future.
The Importance of a Vision
Ask yourself this question. What if your life and career stayed the same over the next five years with no new changes? How do you feel about that? Would that scare you? If so, that does not have to be your personal reality.
A vision is the most powerful way to keep you focused on what you want in life while keeping you motivated to achieve those wants. Visions help you remove roadblocks and open your mind to limitless possibilities. When you create a vision that makes you feel happier, healthier, more successful, and purpose driven, you are more likely to set into motion a plan so that your vision becomes reality.
Vision versus wishes
Living your life without a vision is like walking in the darkness; it’s hard to find the way. You stumble into obstacles because you do not know where you are going. A vision adds a positive direction to your life and creates your personal legacy. It adds a sense of accomplish to your daily routine as your vision become a reality. However, a vision without goals is only a wish.
How do you create a vision?
Imagine without limitations
Remember, your vision is yours alone. The first step is to know exactly what you want. Start simply and ask yourself where you want to be in five years. Feel free to vision without limitations and fears.
Feel passion in your vision
Write down specifically how you see yourself, your career, your love life, your family life, etc. in the future. You should feel inspiration and happiness about your visions. As you create your vision, you begin to feel passionate about it. The more passionate you feel about your vision, the more likely you are to achieve it.
Having a successful vision
The only way to be successful in your vision is to continually visualize it and set goals and a plan of action to reach your vision. Have long term and short term goals so that over time, you start to see more parts of your vision coming true. Then one day, you will wake up and find that you are living your vision in real-time.
Be inspired today. Find a quiet setting where you have a few moments alone and start imagining without limitations!
