Have you ever tried walking from your bedroom to the kitchen in the middle of the night? It’s pretty difficult to do when everything around you is so dark. But, if you were to make that same trip with the lights on, you’d probably have a better result…
…Plus, you’d avoid all the “shin killers” along the way.
The same is true in your professional life. Whether you’re a C-Suite executive at a major firm or the pool guy at the local motel, having clarity makes a massive difference in your ability to sustain high-level performance.
In the world today, many people are going throughout their days without much sense of a personal mission or vision. We wake up (probably earlier than we would like to), get ready, commute to work, sit at work, then drive home. Each day repeating the same mundane process over, and over, and over again.
By developing a clear vision statement, you essentially “turn the lights on” in your personal growth, development, and ability to sustain performance.
All of a sudden, instead of complaining about waking up early, you’re jumping out of bed with excitement! Instead of mindlessly going about your workday, you’re achieving like never before and enjoying every minute of it!
There’s a lot of power in the simplicity of having a clear personal vision.
So, how do you gain clarity? Where to even start?
Here are a few recommendations on developing a clear personal vision statement:
- Create a shortlist of core values – without knowing what’s important to you and what you stand for, it will be hard to develop a vision statement.
- Think about the goals and dreams you have for yourself – by understanding what you want, making a vision statement becomes very simple.
- Finally, begin writing your vision statement with an “I am.”
By saying “I am…” at the beginning of your vision statement, you are empowering yourself and creating new synaptic connections in your brain. It is much better to say “I am” than, “I would like to become…” or “Someday, I will be this…”
Do you notice the difference there?
