Clarifying a Vision for your Future

The First Step in Successful Goal Setting

Man With a 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. Everyone needs a vision!

You’ll be 100 times more motivated moving towards something you want, than away from something you don’t want. Clarify what you really want! All of your goals should lead you towards your vision or they shouldn’t be goals at all.

“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 find clarity and live out their bucket list. I ask questions that inspire them to dream about their ideal future in 7 different life areas. Here’s the worksheet I use.

Creating Your 2 – 5 Year Vision Worksheet

“Nobody gets to live life backward. Look ahead, that is where your future lies” – Ann Landers

How a Vision can improve your life

  • Opens you up to your potential
  • Helps you make the best decisions possible
  • Reminds you of what you have to be excited about
  • Makes you more disciplined and focused on the right things
  • Eliminates those activities not leading to your vision

It’s hard work planning a bright future, especially if you’ve gone through trauma, you’re anxious, or depressed.Your mind won’t want to go there, yet it’s just what it needs.

Download the worksheet and take 20 minutes for this activity. Any more than 20 minutes may cause “over-analysis paralysis”. Trust yourself and get your thoughts down. Create your vision summary and reflect on this each morning.
