If your life were perfect, what would it look like?
Looking at least five years forward, how would your perfect life look? Where do you live? In what kind of house would you live? What would be the ideal job? How much money do you make a year? In what would you have invested your money? How are your relationships with your family? What is the state of your health? How are you growing personally and professionally? How’s your prayer life? What vacations are you taking? What is your perfect day? Who do you want to be?
The answers to these questions describe the vision for your future. Unfortunately, less than 10 percent of people are future-oriented, seriously contemplating the future. The other 90 percent spend most of their time worrying about today, seeking immediate gratification, or thinking about the past and what has happened to them. The law of cause and effect says that we become what we think about most.
Future-oriented people invest time in considering their future and what it will look like when they get there. They can tell you what they are working toward, their goals and why! Present and past-oriented people are fuzzy about the future and may even become defensive when asked if they have goals.
Creating a personal vision statement is like a social media algorithm. It opens your mind to the prospects around you that may contribute to achieving your vision, so you see them even when you aren’t consciously searching.
This week I challenge you to write a personal vision statement. Make it as detailed as you can. Think out at least five years, or as far as you can imagine, because the next step is to figure out how to get there.
