Want to be someone who ‘has it all’? Create a visual vision statement!

Have you ever met someone super successful, happy, and fulfilled? Someone who just seems to have it all? You probably felt a little jealous of that person, right? Whether it was a long time ago, or whether you’re feeling that way now, what I’m about to share with you is going to ensure you stop wishing for what other people have and start experiencing true fulfillment!

You might be thinking that’s a pretty bold statement to make, right? Maybe… But as someone who’s experienced this transformation, you can trust that I know just the trick.

So, what exactly am I talking about?

I’m talking about vision statements. Not just any old vision statement, though – a personal visual vision statement.

The reason I believe in this so passionately is because it’s allowed me to have everything that I’m meant to do in my lifetime and has truly connected me to my purpose. Having a one-liner isn’t enough; you need a well thought-out visual that speaks to you and reminds you who you are.

See, a personal visual vision statement is a blueprint for life. It reminds you where you want to go. It acts as a source of inspiration, sparks creativity, and helps keep you aligned with your goals. If you want to stay connected to your purpose and build a foundation for everything you do, you need to create a personal visual vision statement.

Normally I don’t tell people what they need to do, I guide them and allow them to make the choice but this is one situation where people need to be prodded to say YES to finding their purpose in life. Living your purpose is not hard, but it takes discipline and reflection. Once you get past that part, visual vision statements are liberating and powerful.

I don’t want to spend too long trying to convince you here, because that’s what this video is about. It’s a little different from my normal videos; I felt like I had too much to say about this topic to organize it into tips. So instead, I’ll walk you through creating your own visual vision statement. Oh, and if I haven’t convinced you that you NEED one yet, I’ll do that in the video, too!

I’d also LOVE to hear your thoughts and experiences with vision statements. Let’s chat in the comments section. See you there!
