Having a personal vision may seem like an unnecessary thing to work on, let alone think about. It may seem frivolous, pretentious, cliché or even an unrealistic feat. People often spend more time planning out holidays, dinner parties, (pre-lockdown) Christmas plans and birthday parties. Whilst these are memorable and important lifestyle matters, it’s even more meaningful and beneficial to think about, and write out a clear vision of the life you want to live and future you want to materialise. Question; Why live a life without a clear picture or vision of what you are aiming for? Why live day to day with no aspiration, goal, dream…vision

One of things that set successful people apart from others is that, they have a clear vision of what they are heading towards and wanting.

A personal vision can be for any area of your life, like body/health, business or home. I advocate and work with my clients to create a personal vision for every area of their life;

Work, Business, Marriage-Relationships, Wealth, Health, Lifestyle, Spirituality, Contribution/Charity, Home-Environment, Legacy

I believe a vision gives you many positive things, here are just 5;

  1. Clarity, no more fogginess or doing life by default
  2. Poise, with a vision you can move forward with confidence and control
  3. Inner Drive, which comes from within and so does not rely on external factors 
  4. Purpose, you have a reason, a “why” which gives your existence meaning
  5. Opportunity to release your creative potential, problem solve and unlock your imagination 

These quotes make for a compelling case to build a personal vision. Take a few moments and consider each one carefully for your own life…
