Congratulations! If you’re reading this, then you’ve already taken the first step toward creating a vision for a better life. To some, a life vision statement can seem impossible, but it is a critical step in achieving your goals and, ultimately, changing your life.
When you’re unhappy with something in life, whether it’s your career, health, or accomplishments, it’s easy to get lost in your everyday routine and lose sight of your goals. If this sounds like you, then it may be time to reevaluate. It’s never too late to create a new vision for yourself.
If you’re unsure where to start, follow our 3 easy steps to create your new vision statement.
3 steps to create a new vision to better your life.
Decide what matters most in your life.
It’s okay if this question is hard to answer at first — people spend decades thinking about the true meaning of life. The point of this question is for you to think of some things you want to accomplish or parts of your character you want to improve. If you get stuck, simply ask yourself, what is my life vision, then jot down whatever comes to mind.
No matter what is on your list, each item will require support and resources, which leads us to step 2.
Put everything that matters into categories. Then work backwards.
Now that you’ve decided what is most important to you, organize your list into categories For example, if diet, wealth, and gaining more skills matter to you, we suggest using the following categories:
Feel free to break down your list in anyway that makes sense to you.
Once you have chosen the categories, it’s time to get even more specific. For every item on the list, think about what you need or want from them. Write it down if that helps you think. Next, decide what will be the most difficult achievement, and work backwards to see how your goals will work together — almost like a support system.
Write a statement that outlines where your ideal life will take you.
The final step in the process is to transform your lists into a well-rounded statement. In this statement, describe your ideal life in detail, include your list of important things, and, finally, create attainable goals. See these sample vision statements for more inspiration.
By creating a concrete declaration, you can more easily track progress or use it as a guide when you feel lost.
The best part? Whatever vision statement you create doesn’t have to be final. As you grow and learn more about yourself, you can adjust and add to it as needed.
