Your Personal Vision Statement

| November 4, 2014 | 0 Comments

 

Question: Do you have a personal vision statement? 

You are probably asking yourself, “why do I need a personal mission statement?” 

That’s a great question…I’m glad you asked.

Vision has been a topic that’s been in vogue for quite some time now.  I’m sure you have heard the quote “where there is no vision, people perish.” We need a vision! Something that drives us forward—the spectacular that drives us to do the mundane. In fact, I always say that successful people are willing to do the things that unsuccessful people aren’t. I believe, just like companies have a vision statement, successful people need a personal vision statement. 

My personal vision statement is, “I will use my writing and speaking abilities to help others turn their potential into performance, succeed in every area of their lives, and to achieve their dreams.” 

Your personal vision statement should be based on your strengths. It tells the grand thing you are going to do, but it also gives you guard rails. It says, this is the channel in which you are working, right? But it also tells you what you are not going to do. If a company calls me up and says, “Hey Chris, we want you to come sing the national anthem at our event”, that’s not going to happen. It’s not part of who I am, it’s not my strength. So, you want your personal vision statement to be based on your strengths. 

Your personal vision statement states what you want to accomplish for other people. Zig Ziglar would say, “ you can have anything you want in life, if you just help enough other people to get what they want out of life .” My vision statement says I want to accomplish three goals in helping others. I want to help them turn their potential into performance, to succeed in every area of their lives and to achieve their dreams. So, when someone comes to me and asks “can you help me with this?” I have to ask myself is that in my wheelhouse, is that one of my strengths?  

My challenge to you is to start thinking about what you want to accomplish. What are your strengths? Once you have those questions answered, start writing it out, share it with key people you trust, find out what they think and what they consider your strengths to be. The main thing is to start! Write down the spectacular (your personal vision statement) that will drive you to push through to greatness.

Let’s Go Do Something Remarkable!
