What is your Life’s Vision?
What would you like to have in this lifetime? Think big; remember there isn’t a right or wrong answer. This is your vision, not someone else’s.
What do you desire?
Remember the Genie in a bottle. Your wish is my command. If you could have anything in the world, what would it be?
What are some of the things you are grateful for?
Are you grateful for family, friends, your job, your business. etc.
Create a vision in your mind, of what you want.
Close your eyes and think about what you want. See it, smell it, taste it, be it. Imagine what you would do if your desires were meet. Would you be happy? Surrounded by beautiful things, places, people?
What are your short & long term goals?
Short term goals can be achieved within a short amount of time (i.e. a day, a week or a month) while long term goals are achieve over a longer span of time (i.e. a year, ten years, etc.)
Goal setting techniques
· Develop goal setting skills.
How to write your goals
-what do you want
-what are your dreams
-what are your desires
Create a blueprint of your goals. But be sure you write it down and include a time frame. If you don’t write your goals down, they are simply dreams. Use the SMART method when writing your goals.
Set Specific Goals
Your goals must be clear and well defined. Consider this, if someone invited you to their home and you’ve never been, how would you find them? Would you get in the car and start driving in hopes that you end up at the right place? Possibly not, so why would you not map out your goals?
· Set Measurable Goals
Include a month, day (if possible) and year. It’s always best to say “My goal is to hire a Professional Organizer and get organized by September 1, 2011, for example.” Having a time line will keep you focused and on target.
· Set Attainable Goals
Make sure your goals are achievable. It’s okay to set outrageous and bold goals as long as you have a plan of action. Don’t set yourself up for failure or “erode your confidence” if you have no desire of achieving that goal. However, you don’t want to set goals that are too easy-set challenging and realistic goals. This way you can “raise the bar” and your level of satisfaction.
· Set Relevant Goals
Your goals should reflect the direction of your life or career path. If you’re scared of highs and hate cold weather you won’t set a goal of “Climbing Mt. Everest.” Your goals should align with you-remember stay focused. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
· Set Time-Bound Goals
Always have a deadline for your goals. Having a deadline and a sense of urgency, will increase your success and allow achievement to come quicker.
Creating your vision board/treasure map
1. Get clear about your purpose-your spirituality, family, home, jobs. What would having a big home do for you? Is it security or keeping up with the Joneses.
2. Write a ‘W’ list. Manifest what you want.
I wish for…
3. Look through magazines for pictures of things you want, places you want to visit and people who inspire you.
4. Start at the center and work outward if you’re doing a vision board. For example, my center contains a spiritual picture and everything else branches out from it.
5. You can overlap photos. I chose not to because I prefer not to have a cluttered look. However, do what works for you.
6. Be creative. You can utilize professional images istock.com , unusual objects, sea shells, vintage items, leaves, poems, money, miniature furniture, or other objects.
7. Practice your vision/affirmation on random people i.e. I’m getting closer to having a multi-million dollar company every day.
