Creating a clear 10-year vision for you is one that will impact your life path right now. Daunted?
You’re not alone.
We’re capable of creating visions of our personal/business goals, but at ArtSHINE we encourage clients to create a vision board that addresses where they want to be in 10 years, their achievements and the impact they want to have. Think big, get results.
Articulating your vision with excitement, emotional and fear means you care. But what stops people writing their vision? The word ‘how’! How will I get there? How will I accomplish that?
The good news is you don’t need to know the journey. When creating a 10-year vision, you’ll have time to map your destiny. You won’t know the answers, but the ability to spot the opportunities and to discover does. That’s the true excitement of your journey. Believe me it’s worth doing. Why?
Let me take you back 10 years ago: Where were you in life, what did you know at the time, what were you doing, where were you going, what had you learnt, and how have you developed?
Now add a decade to your life from today and visualise how much more you can grow and learn. The possibilities are endless!
Let me give you an example. When a friend, Kelly, left her job in Perth, she didn’t have any contacts in the film industry, but had a vision of living in New York as a Broadway actress.
Although she didn’t know her path, she didn’t look for any alternatives. She focused consistently and persistently on her goal. Kelly used every opportunity as growth, instead of setback.
After three years, Kelly is now living her dream: working on Broadway, passionately living and looking to achieve more goals. She achieved because she worked out what she wanted.
If you boldly declare your future and you’re seriously committed, you will notice opportunities you may not have recognized before. That’s why it’s so important to write your goals down.
Work out what is important to you, declare it to yourself and share it with the world. Focus on that vision and although the journey may twist and turn, the destination remains: your end goal.
If you’re starting out, act now. Remove self-doubt and don’t procrastinate. Do the tasks that you want to do, the tasks that really matter and you’ll reach your vision, effortlessly.
