Whether it’s for a personal need, business or group, you can create a wonderful vision and Vision Statement to have the future you desire! The statement can be adapted to just about any challenge or goal you want to achieve, and to help your dreams come true!

A Vision Statement can be short, from a sentence to a paragraph, so you don’t have to write a lot. But it’s designed to help inspire you and move you toward a goal; it gives you something to aim for. When you write a Vision Statement, aim high and dream big! Why limit yourself, your future or what you can do? When you do, you make success harder to achieve, not easier! Sadly, many people live their whole lives never realizing their full potential!

A Vision Statement is roughly defined as an image of the future we wish to create or achieve. It’s about making your dreams come true, helping you to move forward in your life or business when you feel stuck! And it can be written so it’s easy to remember. Keep it in your mind and focus on it as you drift off to sleep. (I can help you with all the details).

It can also greatly help to counteract negative thinking or feelings of helplessness in all aspects of life, health and business. And by including your passion, creativity, values, hopes and dreams, it can be very meaningful to you or for your business or group (also see previous posts about coaching and how it can help a range of personal, health and business issues).

Most experts say the vision should be years away but I think you can apply a Vision Statement to shorter term goals and objectives. Why not 3, 6 or 12 months? If it works for you and helps you to imagine a better future with more success, health or money, I say, “Go for it!”

Consider these questions:

1. Where do you want to be in the future (choose the time-frame that works best for you)?

2. Imagine that you are already there. What do things look and sound like; how do you feel?

3. Imagine that your needs are met and goals achieved. How has your life changed/improved?

These questions will hopefully get you going in the right direction. As you begin to see a better future, you can visualize yourself there, when your goals already achieved as you enjoy a better, more prosperous life, with great health and vitality. To help facilitate this process, read the examples of Vision Statements below (notice the passion, richness of adjectives and density of language).

Examples:

1. Amazon.com: 

“Our vision is to be earth’s most customer centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online.”

2. eBay:

“eBay pioneers communities built on commerce, sustained by trust, and inspired by opportunity. eBay brings together millions of people every day on a local, national and international basis through an array of websites that focus on commerce, payments and communications.”

3. Toyota:

“Toyota will lead the way to the future of mobility, enriching lives around the world with the safest and most responsible ways of moving people.

Through our commitment to quality, constant innovation and respect for the planet, we aim to exceed expectations and be rewarded with a smile.

We will meet our challenging goals by engaging the talent and passion of people, who believe there is always a better way.”

4. My example:

My vision is: I am one of the most effective coach/trainers in America. I have a complete commitment to every client and their needs to achieve or exceed their goals and dreams. I help every client create a better, more prosperous life for themselves, their family and their community!

If you read these various examples carefully, you can begin to see the style and language used. Each of these communicates a vision that can help to guide and lead businesses to more progress, growth and success! And you could apply the approach to yourself in a personal or small biz statement as the last example shows.

And keep this in mind when considering your future: I know many people don’t think they need a coach or don’t need any help. Many people have the false impression that asking for help is a sign of weakness. But the opposite is true! Successful people often seek opportunities to grow and expand their learning. They look for ways to expand their perspective and knowledge. When success is the goal, getting help and support is part of the process!

Successful people realize they don’t know everything and they look for opportunities to grow and increase their success!

Whether you need to put a compelling vision statement for personal growth business success, better health, or other reasons, I’m happy to work with you and offer some special, limited-term pricing: I’ll give you 2 coaching/training calls for $29.00! In those calls (usually about 45-60 minutes), we’ll outline the points and create an inspiring vision Statement! I’ll offer a few additional bonuses as well (contact me for more details).
