PERSONAL VISION STATEMENT
If you are in a steering a boat, most likely you have a destination point. Your life should be the same way. You are essentially steering your life but most of us don’t have a destination point. A destination point is your personal vision statement.
Stephen Covey states “begin with the end in mind.” The end in this case is your legacy. It is what you want people to remember the most about you. It is your life’s destination point and should also be your vision statement.
More than likely is won’t be what you do every day. People will not remember Janiece Carlson for her radio show but they will remember her dedication to new small businesses and women. They won’t remember her for the number of listeners but how she touched their lives.
How to write your vision statement:
1. Determine what two things or events make you angry? Angry enough to take action or it keeps you up at night. Typically it is not the event or item itself, but the how it violated your value system. Is there a common theme such as loyalty, honesty, justice, etc.?
2. Think about your two favorite childhood memories. What values can you highlight in those moments?
3. If your friends could summarize what you mean to them, what might they say?
4. What is your proudest moment in your life? What values are represented in your moment? Review your answers.
5. Assess your life the new few days. What moments make you feel good? What moments upset you or make you angry?
As time passes and you begin to see a clear pattern what values matter the most to you, then you can determine how those values fit into relationships with people in your life.
