The Ultimate Personal Vision Clarifying Activity
Creating Your 10-Year Vision
It’s transformed businesses. Changed the direction of families. Taken people from addiction to sobriety, from anxiety to hope, and from depression to excitement. What the heck is it? VISION.
A positive view of what your future can become can transform your life. It’s hard work perceiving how good your life CAN be, especially if you’re anxious or depressed. Your mind won’t want to go there when in a funk, yet it’s probably just what it needs.
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” – Carl Jung
People hire me to help them clarify their dreams about their future. I take people through an intense process in getting them towards their 10-year personal vision. I ask questions that inspire them to dream about their ideal future in 7 different life areas. Here’s the worksheet I walk them through. It’s yours for personal use and to give away.
“Nobody gets to live life backward. Look ahead, that is where your future lies” – Ann Landers

Download the worksheet and take 15 – 20 minutes for this activity. Clarify your dreams and formulate a paragraph that summarizes the core aspects of each area. This is your vision summary. Reflect on this summary each morning.
For most, any more than 20 minutes on this activity will cause “paralysis by over-analysis”. Trust yourself and get your thoughts down. Complete this activity, then ask me anything on the vision process by commenting below. I will respond to each comment. Make me your dream coach.
