We see and hear a lot about how important it is to have a vision for our life. It is necessary to give ourselves guidance when making choices in the actions we take on any given day. It defines our goals and measures our progress.
What is a vision?
It is a mental representation of where we see ourselves in the future and what we stand for. It represents what is most important for us. If asked many people can tell you about their vision and can be very clear on the obstacles they need to overcome to reach it. But are they doing anything today to reach it.
If we have not taken an action towards our vision today then perhaps it is because the vision we have has lost it's power to generate action. We see it and want it but are not inspired enough anymore to take an action today. We have stopped asking at the end of each day what we have done towards our vision. We have stopped looking for alternate ways and possibilities for reaching our vision.
If this is true then we need to create a new vision that does excite us and moves us to take action right now. Remember that over time we change and our vision needs to change with us.
Are you still clinging to an outdated vision?
