One thing I’ve learned over the years is, whenever I feel the need to re-ignite my passion and activate my ability to manifest what I want, I need only to return to the vision I am holding for my life. Your vision is a purpose-driven expression of what you want your life to look and feel like at a specific time in the future, which inspires you to take daily steps towards bringing it into fruition.
- Engages my heart, mind and spirit in the process of creating a great life.
- Helps me see the smaller steps and projects that will get me to where I want to be.
- Inspires me to stay focused on taking daily actions that lead to bigger wins.
- Gives my everyday life more significance, meaning and fun.
Yesterday we began the process of identifying the things we desire in each of the 8 areas of an extraordinary life. Using the wheel and a series of journal pages, we began to write out, in detail, the things we want to call into our experience. While in future blogs we will be focusing on our business vision, today we’re going to begin with an eagle’s eye view of the life we want to live. Too often our life experience is eclipsed by the demands of our business. Starting with a view of the life you want to live will ensure our life desires drive the vision, rather than the demands of the business.

Find a quiet spot where you will not be interrupted, ideally for one hour, but 30 minutes will do. By creating a comfortable and inspiring environment for this step you call in creativity and possibility. You may want to play beautiful music, light a candle, or pour a cup of tea or glass of wine to set the tone.
Step #2: Decide on the scope of your vision.
Pick a place and time in the future as your vision end point, it can be any timeframe you want – I will be creating my vision for one year from today, so I’ll be referencing one year in the step below. Write the future date at the top of a fresh page in your journal and write the following sentence beneath it (or something similar).
