We always talk about how important it is to set goals. It is the beginning of the year and of course, everybody is setting their New Year’s resolutions. So many people set goals at the beginning of the year without projecting their imaginations out into the future and thinking about how they fit into the big picture.
It’s important to set goals that you’re excited to achieve; however, the first step is to get clear about your vision.
Your vision is crucial to your success. You set the stage for your final outcome based on how hard you’re willing to work, and it all starts with being able to clearly see yourself achieving your goal. You have to visualize success.
If you are not crystal clear about your vision, here are some reasons to start now.
1) When you have a vision, it breathes life into your goals.
The process of setting goals is mainly about the journey, but your final vision is your destination. The destination of course, is the most exciting part. This is why we work hard. You are making a plan for success. Your vision helps your goals take on a new life.
2) Your vision takes you through the challenges.
There is no secret formula to success. It is going to be hard work. There will be obstacles and roadblocks, and there will be days where you just don’t feel like you’re up to the task. You will have setbacks but when you start thinking about success that’s on the other side, you will work hard and be motivated, and this will inspire you to keep moving forward.
3) Your vision keeps you focused.
Having a clear vision will prevent you from being inconsistent. One of the mistakes that people make is when they achieve success, they let up. They may have a great day and then they decide to take the next day off. This is a huge mistake because it makes you lose your momentum. When you have the momentum wave, it is vital that you keep riding it. Without vision, you can’t effectively execute your goals for the long term.
4) Your vision give you purpose.
It’s so important when you are on the road to success that you have a “Why.” It’s all about desire and determination. When you have purpose, it kicks your butt into gear. Make sure you write down the reasons why it is imperative that you achieve success. Keep reminding yourself of this daily.
5) Your vision gives you direction.
This is called clarity and we all need it. The reason why many people are not successful is because they are indecisive and they hesitate which blocks them from achieving their goals. It’s important you know where you’re headed before you get started, or you will be wasting time trying to figure out where you are and you will end up being lost. Be clear and have a direction.
Vision is very important. It is the starting point when deciding on new goals. The sooner you get clear about what you want, the clearer you will be able to visualize it, and the easier it will be to make it happen. If you haven’t done this already, get a success journal and start creating your vision.
Visualize success and go for it. Have an awesome week!
