Are you ready to create a vision statement of who you want to be? If so, get on board with these tips.

  • Shift your focus to a life that you always dreamed of or even a person that you want to aspire to.
  • If you want to have a life similar to someone you admire, read about how that person has become a success and use that as a guideline to help you accomplish something similar.

Did you know that when you create a positive image within your mind, it sets up neural pathways in your brain to help you reach your goals? The more you reinforce this mental image by thinking on it, imagining it, seeing it — the more pathways will be created. There is plenty of information available online that can help you with your vision, use it to your advantage. I love Dr. Caroline Leaf — she is a neurosurgeon turned speaker who is full of information about changing your brain and changing your life!

When you have determined your vision statement and the steps you to help you get there, continue to imagine your vision. Do this on a daily basis as often as you can. Your brain will get so used to this vision it will become a subconscious process like a habit.

If your vision statement is fine but the plan is not getting you where you need to go, don’t be afraid to make changes with it. Visions are adaptable. They can be changed as needed. This can happen when information that wasn’t available comes to light along the way.  

Be prepared for skepticism while creating this new vision for yourself. Your vision statement is yours and yours alone. People may not understand what you are trying to aim for. Hold to your beliefs and do not let them get in your head. Your critics are not the ones who have to live with the vision you make for yourself. Once your vision is manifested, guess who will suddenly be on your side? Those same critics! They will even claim to have been there for you all along. Yeah, I know it’s annoying, but that is how people behave. It’s not worth the drama. Just move on with your vision and let them think whatever they want. I believe in you!
