Having a vision is knowing where I want to end up and want I want. This is the quality of life that I want, my purposes or mission statement. When I make visions, I use images, descriptive word, and try not to get caught up in the specific details, but the general feeling.
Ideally, my life vision will include statements that will be true no matter what life throws at me and more than just a single occurrence or goal. For instance, a good statement would be, “To be healthy and full of energy, and be able to perform hard physical tasks,” rather than something that is more objective like, “Run a marathon.” (Don’t worry there is a place for concrete goals later!)
Family version: Be happy together, and full of love. Have faith in Christ, be a family forever. Be smart and well educated. Create beauty and solve problems. Show love to each other by serving and helping. Be respectful in all circumstances. Have healthy bodies and a clean, productive home. Be financially responsible.
Deciding what is desired
- Where am I going?
- How do I want to influence other?
- What are my ideal characteristics?
- Who do I want to be?
- What is my mission or purpose?
- What do I hope to achieve?
- What skills do I wish to have?
