New Year Resolutions aren’t enough – You need a Compelling Vision


2022 is nearly at the end! I hope it’s been a great year for you.

Alas I know for many it hasn’t been. If you’re looking for one thing you need to do in the last few weeks of this month then I have a suggestion for you.

The first step in changing your life is to create a compelling vision of who you’ll become and what you want your life to ultimately be like. Your compelling vision will drive you as well as excite you – giving you something to look forward to on a continual basis.

Your Vision should be future-based. It should inspire you and give guidance and direction. It needs to stretch the imagination. Having a vision in life means we have a clear sense of purpose. It gives you the larger picture of what you want your life to look like.

Without anything to inspire you, what reason do you have to do anything? What reason do you have to get out of bed? More importantly what’s going to get you to raise your standards and excel.

I’ve found that what most people lack in life is a compelling vision. In fact, it’s not that most people are lazy or bored, it’s that they have no vision for the future other than living a life dealing with problems giving them nothing to look forward to.

A vision will provide you energy, focus and clarity of purpose about what 2023 is going to be about for you. It will get you crystal clear on your purpose and focus for the year ahead. It’s easy to get so caught up in your day-to-day life that you forget what inspires you and makes every battle have meaning.

THE FIRST STEP TO GETTING ANYWHERE IS TO DECIDE WHERE YOU WANT TO GO. That seems so obvious that you may be wondering why I bothered to say it. Well, for one thing, despite its obviousness, you’d be surprised to learn just how often we completely forget to do it. Oh sure, you feel like you’ve set a lot of goals for yourself, but have you really? Or have you just thought about how you’d like to be happier, healthier, or more successful, without actually deciding what specifically you were going to do about it?

You have desires, lots and lots of things that you want to happen, but how many of those wishes have you turned into real goals? Without being translated into goals, our desires remain just that—things we wish would happen. You too can start this cycle in your own life—the first step is to set yourself some very specific and reasonably difficult goals. And you can further enhance your chances for success by thinking about those goals in the most motivating ways. That’s through having a compelling vision.

So, as you’ve read this to this point, now is the time to get your compelling vision started!

Ask yourself this. What do you want your life to look and feel like 5 years from now? 10 years from now? 20 years from now?

Now let your mind find and visualise the answer. Just be an onlooker let your internal mind materialise the answer. Let it play out. Dream and dream big.

What kind of car do you drive? What kind of house do you live in? What do you want to do in your life? Do you have any major goals in life that you want to see yourself achieve? Why is it important to you? What do you want to accomplish? How do I want my life to look?

Trust the process and listen to your heart. There are no right or wrong answers. All you need to do is think, imagine, and dream.

As you get started, remember to stay in a positive frame of mind. You’re charting a course to your envisioned future. This is a time to be grateful, eager, and open.

Willing to do what’s necessary to unleash and uncover your hidden potential?

You’re here to find practical solutions to effect change.

Creating your compelling vision is key to change.

Personal development is about change. It’s about taking the steps that take you closer and closer to growing in the key areas of your life. It doesn’t matter whether you are a smashing success in one area of your life, if your life is completely out of balance, personal development is a lifelong journey.

Get your compelling vision actively pictured in your mind.

The best way to have the future that you want is to design it now. Tony Robbins
