                                                                        The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

                                                                        The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

                                                                        Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

                                                                        your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

                                                                          Why You Need a Vision

                                                                          Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

                                                                          Advertising

                                                                          How to Create Your Life Vision

                                                                          Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

                                                                          What Do You Want?

                                                                          The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

                                                                          It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

                                                                          Advertising

                                                                          • What would you like to have more of in your life?
                                                                          • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
                                                                          • What are your secret passions and dreams?
                                                                          • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
                                                                          • What do you want your relationships to be like?

If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel.

Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

                                                                          • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?

                                                                          • What beliefs would you have needed to change?

Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

                                                                          It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
