This post is for anyone who wants to develop a vision for their life. If you’re not sure what your purpose or goals are, or if you feel like your life lacks direction, this post will help you overcome those obstacles. It contains simple tips that will help you gain clarity about your future and improve it in the process.
It’s funny how we think that we’re too busy to reflect on our lives when in reality, it’s the most important thing we can do. You can never be too busy to think about what really matters to you and what direction your life is heading in.
Spend some time thinking about your ideal future—what would your ideal life look like? Do you want to travel the world? Have a family? Become an entrepreneur or start a non-profit organization? Write a book or record music? Retire early and spend more time with friends and family? Developing this vision will help guide all of your decisions as they relate to both career/work life and personal relationships.
What are some key values that define who you are as an individual (i.e., honesty, loyalty)? What values do people around you share (i.e., respect for others)? How does this affect how each person interacts with one another at work or home?
The first step in creating a vision for your life is to picture it. Imagine what you want your life to look like and how you want it to feel. What do you want to be doing? What are your goals and dreams? How do you want the world around you to change, or what new aspects of your life would make it more fulfilling?
Think about all of these things as if they were already happening right now. How would this feel, exactly? For example: If you were living on a tropical island with no obligations, who would you spend your time with and what activities would you be doing together? How much money could you spend on whatever you wanted without worrying about finances—and how would that make you feel knowing that everything was paid for (not just bills, but groceries too)?
What kind of people would fill your social circle—and why? Is there anything different about them than the friends you have now or keep in touch with? What hobbies do these people enjoy together; what activities do they get involved in; where do they love going out together as groups—and why does that matter so much for you now when looking back at this dream scenario later on down the road when reality comes crashing down around us once again after years pass by unnoticed?
Write down your goals.
Write down the reasons why you want to achieve those goals.
Write down the steps you'll need to take in order to achieve those goals.
Write down the time frame for achieving them (I recommend having a deadline).
In order to develop a vision for your life, you’ll need to think about what is important to you.
What do you want? What do you hope for? What do you wish for?
Maybe there are some goals that may seem far-off or out of reach at the moment, but write them down anyway. Write down all of your hopes, dreams and desires—even if they don’t seem realistic at this moment. The more specific they are, the better: “I want a job where I can make an impact” is better than “I want a job where I can contribute my skills and abilities to something meaningful.”
Once you have written down everything on your list (and it doesn't need to be exhaustive), take some time off from thinking about it and let the ideas percolate in your mind before moving on.
Think about your future to boost your confidence and achieve greater things.
You can't be successful without a plan, and you can't have a good plan without thinking about where you want to go. That's why it's so important to spend some time pondering your goals and aspirations for the future. Doing so will not only help you set those goals in stone but also get an idea of what steps need to be taken in order for them to come true.
It’s not an easy task to develop a vision for your life, but with the right tools and techniques, you can make it happen. By writing down goals, cultivating self-confidence, thinking about what’s important in life and getting out of ruts, you will find yourself living more freely with a greater sense of purpose.
When you understand yourself better, you are more likely to make better choices so that you can focus your time and energy on the things that have a greater impact on you and your family. I can help you get more clarity, focus and structure for your working days to give you more time to spend on the things you love to do.
Your first step is to book a discovery call and let's have a chat.
