      Well said. Once you change yourself, you pretty much achieved the second goal.

    Not sure I would refer to it as a "vision" but I definitely have a plan which I constantly refer to and revise when needed.

      Very important to have your goal revised more often.

    If you are like me, you probably pass a number of signs on the way to work each day that offer “words of wisdom” for all travelers to see and reflect upon. I passed one such sign this morning in front of a bank that read: “It takes someone who can see the invisible to do the impossible.” Pondering the statement, it seemed to me that what the quote was referencing was “vision”—the ability to "see" an idea or plan for the future. It also suggests the possibility of being able to predict the future.

    Hi Thinker1,

    I have always subscribed to the creation of visions or dreams to help me advance to a better place from any moment in time. Some of these have included traveling the world (tick), migrate to Australia (tick), sack my boss (tick), find my soulmate (tick), live in my dream house (and no, it isn't a massive villa, but a nice little Queenslander with a cottage feel)(tick), live in a caravan while running my business (still working on that one).

    Each of these dreams or visions have helped to keep me excited, happy and working hard in order to achieve them.

    I believe that in order to live life to the max we need to be inspired every single day. Inspirations can come from the smallest things, such as a blooming flower, a ray of sunshine on a cold winter's day, or the smile of a stranger.

    Allow yourself to dream and be inspired and life will take on a whole different meaning.

    Hope this helps.

      Wow, Monica thank you for your inspirational and encouraging words of wisdom. I love how you ticked most of the visions that you had set for yourself. The beauty is that you're still working on another goal or vision. This definitely keeps you inspired as well as motivated to keep going. Thanks for sharing.

    When you write down your goals, your primary aim is to create a new vision for what you desire to experience next in life, so that you can begin to make that vision a reality.

    Goal setting absolutely works! When you have your vision of what you want your brain will automatically think of ways to start achieving that goal. Its about taking the next step of taking action and believing you can achieve that goal is what will accomplish them

    I write down everything i want on post its and stick them on my computer, I also use a vision board to keep me focused. On it i have my dream house in hawaii.

    i pledge to thank your replies and educational posts and hope you will do the same for me!

    Most of the companies have Vision, mission, goals, objectives, strategies, and programmes which help them to stay alive in the complexly competitive business market and we as individuals need to adopt the same principles just to stay even or progress in our careers or business

      Never thought about companies but now that you brought that, you are right. That's way most of them are successful. When they don't have their objectives, goals, vision etc... not clarified they often go out of business. Thanks for the insightful comment.

    I have a vision, one that I see every day during my inner hour for peace. It is as vivid as anything I see with my eyes and it does make every day have a purpose.

    The vision bring clarity and focus. It sometime is the point that change a day from nothing to absolutely great.

    The vision is so strong that I can feel and taste the results. I am able to identify details so clear as if they already had happened and in someway they already have happened.

    And the path is clear. I visit the vision in meditation, in incantations, in my talking to people. The vision is shared and relived every day. What a great way to live.

      Wow, Michael. That's exactly what I want to achieve. I have a vision and I often visit it and enjoy it but I believe it's not as vivid as yours. So what other methods have you used besides meditation to achieve this level of deep vision.

      That's true. Without having a vision it may be impossible to stay focused and achieve what you need in life.

    Buying my own house and being able to afford all the little luxuries I want without thinking twice about when my next pay check is coming. That's what I can't wait for! Id say, 500,000 would cover that simple wish. Then I'll have to remodel my dream to bigger and better things!

    Now when I reach those goals I feel much more positive & motivated to reach my vision.

    Great topic & I don't think some people realise how important it is like me in the past.
    Not having a vision is almost not having a destination to go to. Without a destination even if you have a goal it can take you anywhere and sometimes to places that you didn't want to be. The vision is vital for finding yourself where you want to be.

    Of course, as long as you have something you work toward. Goals are ever changing that's the dynamic nature of it that keep us motivated and stay focused. Thanks for sharing.

    I sometimes have a hard time keeping my vision straight, so what I've done is created a visual representation of my perfect life- a vision board so to speak. I simply created a folder of my visionboard photos on my laptop, and I have both my desktop background and my screensaver rotate the images every 5 seconds. That way, in my downtime, I am constantly being shown visually what I'm aiming for. I also use a program for the mac called subliminal message pro- it rotates a bunch of subliminals that I wrote, and they're only on the screen for something like 25 milliseconds, so you don't really even notice them.

      Wow, you're going to achieve your vision in no time. That's definitely the best way to keep the vision in the for front of your head. I'm going to do the screen saver idea. Thanks for sharing.

    Having a vision is critical to your success. It's like having a map of where you want to go. I prefer to be clear on my goals and visions.

    Hence, start each day with a definite plan in mind and apply discipline. I know it's easyto say, but after a few weeks of determined effort, it will become ingrained. You will really laugh and enjoy the result in a few mionths and years from now. Look ahead, never behind.
