What is Your Vision for Your Life in 2017?

It's not too early to be thinking about your life vision for 2017! No one else is going to do it for you.

 I invite you to check out our ebook, Create Your Powerful Vision Board - 10 Steps to Success.

Here is the first chapter to get your started.
Step 1-Bring Your Purpose to Your Vision Board
Your vision board is most powerful when it is a visual expression of your life purpose. As you plan, design, choose content for, and build your vision board, keeping your life purpose in mind will shape not only the content of the board, but also will infuse power into your vision board.

As a practical aid for this part of the process, we suggest choosing a single image and possibly a single word or two (at most a phrase) that expresses your purpose as you currently understand it and put the image (and words) on a piece of paper and place it where you can easily see it while you work on your vision board. It also can be helpful to hold that piece of paper in your hand and gaze at the representation of your life purpose for a minute before each work session on your vision board.

“But wait!,” you say, “I’m not sure of my life purpose.” Well, that’s OK. You can use the process of building your vision board to help discover (perhaps the better word is ‘uncover’) your purpose. It’s very likely that the statement of your life purpose is a fairly general expression – and that’s OK too – the wonder and the power of it are in the details.
You can create your vision board before you have total clarity about your life purpose, but in that case, think of it as a first draft. Include as much as you can on your vision board of what you’d like to do, be, and have in your life. Don’t hold back; dream big!

If the whole concept of a life purpose throws you, as in you haven’t a clue what we’re talking about, maybe this will help. What we’re talking about is a conscious sense of your destiny. In other words, if it could be that there’s a reason for your existence in this life, what might that reason be?
For example, Marge’s life purpose is “to love, help, and lead others with relaxed confidence as she continues to create more and more for her family and her community.” She created her life purpose statement in a leadership seminar over five years ago, and it has held steady since then. Each year her vision board newly expresses her life purpose statement as her understanding of it continues to develop and as each chapter in her life unfolds around this theme.

Now perhaps you’re not ready or interested in that line of thinking and just want to create a vision board. Well, as stated above, that’s OK, too, but if your vision board ends up looking like a shopping list (or even your family’s shopping list or someone else’s plans for your life), we’d like to plant the idea that maybe there’s more in store for you, if you choose to seek it and go for it.

Focusing on your life purpose while you create your vision board can transform both the process and the product into something that is truly magical and marvelous.
