What is a Vision Statement? It isn’t the vision or dream you have occasionally about the car or house or lifestyle you want to have. It is not part of your “wish” list that says; someday I would like to have, “_____”. Psychologically you live in the present; you look at what you have, what you do and who you are in the “present” not in the future. You get up each morning and see where you live, what you drive, where you work and what you do each day and every week as it is right now.
To take advantage of your Dreams to Achieve Your True Worth you need to start seeing your life as it will be as you start living in your True Worth, your new lifestyle. However, how do you do this since you only see your life in its present tense? How do you use the power of your mind and start moving into the “YOU” you deserve to be? The answer is to create your own personal “Vision Statement”. This statement is a statement of your new lifestyle, the things you deserve, such as the house, the car, the ability to assist others, the trips, the vacations, etc. Everything in this statement is in the present tense as if you already have them and are living them. Here is where your Dreams become present tense and active because you are living it TODAY and it is awesome.
“The surround sound system fills the interior of my _______ (type of vehicle) as I am driving back from the airport. My trip to ___________ was just as I had imagined it would be. After spending, that time on an airplane the smell of new leather in my _____________ is so refreshing. Just ahead, I see my two story home that some of my friends call my mansion in the middle of nowhere. It is surrounded by trees and the lush lawn just begs to be walked on with your bare feet…”
Embellish as much as possible with all the details of your new life. Describe in minute detail the exterior and landscaping of your home. Describe the rooms and what is in each of them. Your daily routine as it will be and the things you plan to do next, (i.e. Trips, Vacations, visiting, learning, etc.) just everything you have ever dreamed of doing.
The greater the detail the easier it is for it to become part of you. The more you read it the more your posture and self-assurance will improve. As these improve your attitude will improve because you are becoming your Vision, you are the person that has and does all of these things because in your subconscious you are creating the You that you have always Deserved to be. Your self-confidence will increase and come to the top and you will feel so much better about yourself and your ability to improve your lifestyle.
Reading your Vision Statement every day is one way to begin this life enhancing experience. What works even better is to record your Vision Statement so that you can listen to it at least once a day. Studies have shown that there are two voices that have the most profound influence upon someone’s life, your mother’s voice or your own voice.
Day after day of hearing your vision your subconscious will start believing and as it starts believing so do you. That starts the process and keeps things moving in your life towards your new direction. This replaces the negative self-talk you might be doing. Any time something negative comes up in your mind (self-talk) your daily listening to or reading of your Vision Statement will eventually replace it with positive self-talk. This might sound awkward to some, but it has had outstanding results for those that have committed and followed through with Visions, their goals and their action plans. When do you feel it is time to write your vision statement and start hearing your new life every day? No time like the present. Start Today!
