Envision Your Vision

#1 of 3) How Vision in this coaching context works….
Vision incorporates your values, dreams, and ambitions. Vision is an ideal to strive for when goal setting, commitment defining and strategically planning. Vision is a very personal experience for you. Vision pulls you forward. Envision your Vision.
Your Vision is a powerful focusing tool. While almost inherently based on your purpose in Life, or “Life Purpose,” your Vision for your business and personal life may change over time, or become worn out and dated. Your Vision must be kept current to serve you.
With heightened awareness of your Vision, you can modify it as necessary throughout your life.
Vision is an idea committed to memory so well, that in your daily human experience you can call upon it at any given moment to help bring perspective or balance to your behaviors.
Fulfillment begins with your commitment to practice and mastery, as both teacher and learner, guided by your Vision. Only then, is your Vision with you through pain, joy, fear and success.
When you choose to master your present Vision in your life, you develop your “vision muscle.”
Removing the fear from daily life, your Vision opens the space of the moment to just “be.” Part of the fear of just “being” is not getting that next goal done in the “doing” of life.
Ultimately, without worrying about your next goal every single minute, your Vision engenders your trust in the process of life. Even in between goals, you still have your Vision out in front. You can make decisions that lead you to your next goal with your Vision in mind.
#2 of 3) Tips to Envision Your Vision:
- Get it down in writing.
- Refer to it often. You may even want to have it right in front of you by your computer or on your desk pad. Another idea is to carry it around in your pocket on an index card.
- Decide the time line of your Vision — is it 3 years? 5 years? 10 or 20 years? Start with a 3-5 year vision.
- Define your Vision in specific areas of your life such as: Career, Money, Fun/Recreation, Family/Friends, Personal Growth, Physical Environment, Significant Other/Romance, Health. Include any additional areas of importance to you.
- Use your Vision to map out the necessary goals, actions and steps necessary to achieve it. In other words, what do you need to do right now and on an on-going basis to make your Vision a reality?
- Keep it current. Make sure your vision really reflects who you are as well as who you are becoming.
As you focus on your Vision, you aspire towards an experience greater than who you are at this very moment. What is your Vision? And how does it serve you in your professional life? Your personal life? It is worth knowing your Vision.
