I have a bookmark that says Vision is seeing life as it could be. It’s a great statement but putting that into practice is easier said than done. I imagine my life being a certain way in the future, but then daily life comes crashing in like a lion only to tear apart my dream and leaving me to muddle through my day.
Vision is part of leadership. Vision in your life is part of not only getting what you want but also part of wanting what you get when you get it. That’s the tricky part. A woman once taught me how to make a vision board to keep me on track. It was pretty simple and fun to do.
I took a bunch of old magazines and cut out things I wanted, how I wanted to be and what I wanted for my life in pictures. I stuck them to a poster board and put it in my bathroom. It got wet and covered in toothpaste. My kids pulled off one of the photos of the woman walking her dog carefree with nice hair and a handsome man by her side. Did I turn my life into my vision board – yeah I did. Not completely but it helped me focus and keep on track. I would make one if you are feeling overwhelmed, overworked and stressed out. If nothing else, it will pass a few hours and give you hope for the future.
Vision is seeing life how it could be.
