Envisioning our Future

Our ability to see or envision our future is a major step in bringing us to where we want to be. It begins with our vision or a vision statement.

Our vision is a way of describing our thoughts about the future we might want to create.

But how do we do this?   Lets jump straight in!

  1. Imagine that 2013 is coming to an end; you are really satisfied with all aspects of your life.  You’ve made all the changes you wanted to make and have achieved everything you set out to do for the year.  What would that look like?
  2. Write a detailed description of your life as you would want it to be at the end of 2013.  (It’s important to write in the present tense, as if it has already happened, and be as specific as possible).
  3. In addition to your written words you could put together a visual representation of your year by drawing, painting or cutting pictures and words out of newspapers or magazines.
  4. Be as creative as you can.  Its your vision, your creation!

Research confirms that the more able you are to envision your future, the more likely you are to succeed.
