What is a Vision Statement?

A Vision Statement is your ideal life.

When you’ve crushed all your goals when you’re living the lifestyle of your dreams, and you get to do exactly what you want to do with your time. What does that actually look like? Really, really articulate exactly what a day in the life looks like when you’re living your perfect life.

How do you craft a Vision Statement?

What does the best, happiest version of you look like? What would that person do, how would that person feel on a daily basis?

This is what your Vision Statement embodies. The mindset, the habits, the purpose of your ideal self gets put to words when you create one!

A good way to craft a vision statement is to think about what you want your legacy to be. Just like goal setting, we start with the end in mind. What do want to leave behind? How are you going to be remembered? The builder of legacy is the lifestyle you lead. Match your daily thoughts and actions (your lifestyle) to those required to create your legacy. Craft that into 2-5 sentences so it’s impactful and easy to remember. You want this to be something you can repeat to reaffirm who you are when times get tough!

How would you suggest starting to cast a vision? What state of mind do you need to be in? What activities are necessary?

When we’re doing our Ultimate Goal Achievement Process, the 1st Module is called “Start with Gratitude” for a reason. It’s all about getting into the right frame of mind because gratitude feels a lot like success. To achieve your goals, you want to give yourself a feeling of gratitude. Imagine how thankful you’ll be as you achieve more of your goals. You want to imprint that feeling in your mind, body, and spirit. It brings on more of the good stuff!

Having gratitude for not only all the great stuff (your wins) that’s happening in your life, but the trials and the tribulations (your failing forwards) as well. Those are the times you can look back on and see the lessons you needed to learn. If you can become the type of person who looks forward to and is grateful for all the “growing pains” you have on your way to success, you’ll get there that much faster!

Look for the lesson, appreciate the growth. Gain what you need to from this experience and move on to bigger and better wins!

After we’ve looked forward with gratitude, the next step is take a look inside with some “Value Exercises” These allow you to get in touch with a handful of core values or words that truly resonate with you. Your values help bring life and structure to your Vision Statement. If something comes a long and it doesn’t align with your values, you’ll be able to instantly know it’s not something for you.

How do you know if your Vision Statement is good?

It should stir your emotions. You should be amped up or ready to be in complete flow after reading your Vision Statement because it’s your best self articulated. Keep repeating it over and over. Your mind needs repetitive reminders of why things are so great. This helps your mind truly grasp your new vision.

Final thoughts from David

To show you guys just how simple and powerful having a proper Vision Statement can be, I wanted to share mine. It’s pretty short and sweet!!

“I live every day purposely to inspire and to empower others to step into their passion and live even more healthy wealthy and wise!”

That’s become my mantra, that’s become my self-talk. If you’ll repeat your Vision Statement and you’re diligent with it, mark my words, you’ll change your life! if you reverse-engineer exactly what the perfect life looks like to you and craft that into a statement that you can read to yourself every day, things will never be the same!
