Are you ready for 2020? Many people begin to create goals while others assume goals are a waste of time. Henry Ford was once quoted, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right.” I believe in order to move forward one must have a clear vision and everything will line up. I used to set goals and I rarely achieved the level of success I was hoping for and eventually let the goal fade away. I am encouraging everyone to create a vision statement for 2020.
A vision statement is a simple statement of what you want, or how you wish to be. For example, my vision statement is, “I awaken people to their light and empower them to fulfill their soul’s purpose.” I created this statement in 2017 and it has served me well, meaning that I really enjoy what I do as I help people see their light and know how to walk in both worlds; spiritually and physically to fulfill their soul’s purpose. This year, I am going to tweak the vision statement, “I awaken people to their light and empower them to fulfill their soul’s purpose with confidence.”
You might be wondering why the slight tweak to the original visions statement? I am sensing that as people are experiencing chaos, drama, and fear on their path, they can begin to take a step back from their soul’s purpose. People often share with me that the energies around them are intense and filled with anger and fear. Basically, it normal to feel uncomfortable shining their light around people who prefer low vibration of judgment, criticism, and separation. I am hoping to help the warriors of light to feel confident to shine brighter in 2020 so that the people around them can consider stepping into their light as well.
Why a vision statement? I have found that the vision statement keeps me focused. Much like many businesses and corporations who have implemented mission statements, it is a conscious agreement to achieve your soul’s or heart’s desire. In my experience working with businesses, corporations, and individuals, the vision statement helps create a line of sight and focus during mundane activities, chaos or challenges. You see a personal vision statement is a reminder of what activities, intentions, and focus that is needed throughout the day. Steve Jobs once said,” If you are working on something that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.”
A vision statement is personal. It is easy to go online to look at vision statements used in business and even get a glimpse of personal vision statements of popular authors, actors, and politicians. However, you decide what your personal vision statement is, know that at the end of the day it is a statement that holds a feeling of desire and drive in your heart. I have discovered that personal vision statements made from the heart pull people forward, while ego-based vision statements require a lot of controlling, forcing and even manipulation energy. In my experience the ego-based vision statements tend to be draining while the heart-based vision statements are filled with passion, excitement, and enthusiasm. Tony Hsieh reminds us to, “Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.”
As you ponder what, how and where you want to make a change in the world or in your life, consider writing it down. Play with the words until you feel the energy in your heart explode with life, passion and excitement. Then write it down. Write it on several sticky notes and even take a picture of it. Place the sticky notes everywhere to remind you what you are focusing on for the day. I had mine placed on the bathroom mirror and would tell the universe, “Today, I awaken people to their light and empower them to fulfill their soul’s purpose.” As I began to own this statement, people and opportunities to fulfill my personal vision statement showed up in my path. I did not have to run around Charleston looking for clients or people to help awaken to their light. Rather the universe placed many people in my path so that I could fulfill my personal vision statement.
Actually, it was very simple, because through the Law of Attraction, what I focused on every day, showed up in my path. I made it a point to only focus on my personal vision statement. The more I was excited about my personal vision statement, the more people showed up in my path to awaken them to their light and empower them to fulfill their soul’s purpose. Each day my momentum towards success increased as I remained focused on what I held in my personal vision statement. Tony Robbins shares my thought process as he has stated, “People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more thy find a way to succeed.”
Now I share my passion and process for creating a successful 2020 by encouraging you to spend some time creating your own personal vision statement. 2020 is your time to shine, inside and out. What do you need to do to shine? Who do you need to be to shine? Step into your heart, get clear, and act by keeping the line of sight focused on your personal vision statement. Your personal power determines your destiny and you are the master of your destiny in 2020. You probably know what you want to do however you will need to decide today to step into your power and take action! “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Wishing is not enough; we must do.” Johnann Wolfgang Von Goethe
