Creating a picture of the future that is better than the status quo

Developing a vision for your life means creating a picture of the future that is better than the status quo. If your vision does describe a better future and, although challenging, has a realistic chance of being achieved, it will be a great way to motivate you.

Having a vision for your life does not mean having to set out on just one path and one path only and sticking with it. In fact, the opposite is true. In pursuit of living a life of self-leadership, many things may change along the way, such as your views on success and happiness, your views about yourself as a person, and the circumstances in which you find yourself.
Remember when people are at the end of their lives, it is the relationships they formed and the difference they made in the world that they value most highly. Towards the end of their lives, most people agree that the greatest things they have done, and the legacy they are proudest to leave behind, are what they did to help others.
When you set out on a journey, it is vital to know where you are headed, even if you don’t know how you are going to get there. It is important to start with the end in mind, but there is a need to guard against the end being a dead end. There is a great danger of this happening if you are in such a hurry to set a path for yourself that you do not connect this with what you have set out your vision.

If you have a vision for your life, you have a direction with focus and clarity. It means having the power of a written structure against which every decision concerning the most effective use of your time, your talents, financial resources and your energies can be effectively measured.
Vision is the ability to see into the infinite future, past the boundaries of your conditioning and present circumstances, to what could be. It means being able to see the life you truly want and how you want to live it, seeing life and what it could be, not just what it has been. It is about being willing to see the present and the future as not just being the same as the past but as something that can be changed for the better.

Do you love the work you do?

‘Do you enjoy your job? Do you love the work you do?’ Questions you maybe just be asking of yourself as you look to the future and the New Year ahead. If 2021 is going to be your year. Then maybe it is time to recommit to the work you are doing. Alternatively, maybe it is the year you change your job and pursue what you truly dream of doing to make a living if you are to set out to achieve the life you need to be living for it to be one of true success for you.

If you want to achieve true success in your work, then loving what you do will assist you in getting there. For you to love your work, it must reach into your heart in a personal way, to unlock all you have to give. “Love” is a big word. Therefore, while you need to love what you want to do and achieve, you do not have to love all of it all of the time: in fact, it is highly unlikely that you will. To love most of it most of the time is more than enough.

Every job can be tough, and there will be times when it will leave you tired, stressed out and complaining about it, regardless of how much you love it. That is just work and life.

If you want to have success in your work, you need to figure out as best you can what you love to do and are strong at, then go and put these strengths to work. What seems to come so naturally to you and it is as if you are not trying when you do it. This is what happens when you do something you enjoy, and which therefore holds your attention. To take time to consider which activities come naturally to you, where you feel ‘in flow’ and are able to focus easily on what it is you are doing. If you can discover what these things are, you can be sure that this will lead you to achieving success in your work as you have found where your strengths lie.

Until next month, when I will write more on this. Take good care of yourself and I truly do hope you and all your family get to have a great Christmas.
