09 Feb Why You Really Need A Vision.
I was never the ‘type’ to create a vision statement. All a bit airy fairy for me! Too touchy- feely. A bit hippy-jippy. But then, as I started learning how to activate real change in my life and my habits, something really struck me. People avoid creating a vision for their lives because they believe the exercise is futile.
I’ve noticed something pretty profound over the last few years; so many interesting, accomplished, happy people I know have a vision for their lives, a clear, precise, colourful picture of their best life and what that looks like. I’ve also come across many more people who I meet and who I know, who are just exasperated with life, just cruising through, treading water, passing time. These people don’t have a vision. Many of them don’t set goals either.
Life without a vision can feel like we are drifting aimlessly with no purpose or direction. It really is pretty hard to feel a sense of energy or enthusiasm for life if you don’t know where you are headed. I help people get a clear wellness vision, a picture that focuses on health and vitality. It is an image of the way you see yourself living when you have put into practice healthy behaviours that will achieve your goals. It also has elements of other outcomes, usually the reasons you want to be well. This vision can mobilise motivation, excitement and immense satisfaction.
So Why Bother?
– A vision gives you clarity.
– A vision breathes life into your goals. The goals are the journey. The vision is the destination!
– A vision keeps you on track when the going gets tough.
– A vision is motivating and inspiring.
– A vision drives the decisions and actions that bring you fulfilment and joy.
– A vision gives you focus. It’s your true north, your light, your beacon.
– A vision gives you meaning and purpose. It’s your ‘WHY’.
A vision is always the starting point, the place where you should begin when you are deciding on goals. The sooner you gain clarity about what you want, the clearer you will be able to visualise it and the easier it will be to make it happen.
Book a Session.
