Creating a Vision for Your Life
Do you have a vision for your life? A passion that drives you to get out of bed every morning? A deep purpose that you just can’t ignore?
Maybe you’re wondering about the difference between a vision and goals. A vision is the overarching purpose for your life and the compilation of everything you hope to be. Goals are short term, action-oriented steps that lead to bringing that vision to life!
The busyness of our days can often distract us from truly living a vision-oriented life.
Here are my top tips for helping your vision come alive:
Set up a routine for your day. This applies whether you’re working from home, working in an office, or anything in between. Creating flexible routines for your days can support increased productivity and prevent burnout. Pro Tip: Find a non-negotiable time of day where you can plan for the day ahead (or the next day!). For me, this is first thing in the morning, but it could also be done as part of your evening routine for the following day. Don’t forget to jot down things you’re grateful for to remind you of the why behind your work!
Find a mentor. When it comes to a vision for your life, I believe in thinking BIG. Don’t allow yourself to shrink to what you think you “should” be doing. And find people who will support and challenge you in that journey! I think it’s so important to find a mentor/coach who can motivate you and help you lean into the best version of yourself.
Don’t do too much. Think big - yes! Stack your schedule so it becomes unmanageable - no! You want to set yourself up to be successful, so be sure to set challenging but realistic goals to hold you accountable along your path.
BONUS TIP: Believe you CAN. Your mindset plays a huge role in the realization of your vision. Overcome your limiting beliefs and speak positive affirmations into your life. I have tips for supporting a positive mindset in this blog if you need help getting started. I also love setting an alarm on my phone every day to lock in my vision statement. It’s a great reminder and way to keep yourself aligned.
