Are you living your bigger vision? If you are not, then why aren’t you? When you imagine your ideal life, what is missing? Now when you think about what is missing, how can you fill in the void? It is time for you to stretch your faith until it meets your bigger vision. Your bigger vision is the big picture of your life… whatever that picture is to you.
You are the one who gives yourself permission to succeed, you are the one who can bring your vision into manifestation, and you are the one who deserves to live a more meaningful life. If you don’t decide to live a more meaningful life now then when will you decide to? You can’t continue to put off until tomorrow, what you have been blessed to do today.
This article will discuss three keys that can help you live a bigger vision. This is that big vision that you have for your life. The one that makes you smile and feel amazingly accomplished from within. These are not the only three keys, but they are three power keys to help empower you to dream bigger, and live bigger.
1. Get a Picture of Who You Want to Be, and Then Move Into That Picture:
It is important to get a clear picture of your goals. Think of your goals as a picture of what you want to achieve in your life. Many people have goals, but having a goal, and achieving a goal are two separate things. It is critical that you not just have goals, but that you also achieve them.
Achieving your goals can help to live a bigger vision. This also helps you to feel happier and fulfilled. It is important to set short-term goals and long-term goals. This can help you celebrate small victories along the way, and keep you inspired and focused toward lifetime goals as well.
2. Document Your Goal Journey:
Keep a goal journal and keep track of your desired goals, the steps you will take to achieve your goals, and any blocks to achieving them. You can write down what you want to achieve in the next 3, 6, and 12 months, or even longer. The timeframe of your journal is up to you.
Make sure you keep a consistent journal, and don’t just write in it once every six months. It is a good idea to write in your goal journal a few times a week. It is important to visit your journal often, and document how you are doing, and the achievements you are making. This can keep you inspired and motivated along the way to your bigger vision.
Keeping a goal journal can also give you something to reflect back upon, as you are setting new goals. Because you can look back at your journal, and see the success you made toward one set of goals, and it can encourage you as you are working toward new goals.
3. Be Willing to Invest Time:
Realize that achieving goals probably won’t happen overnight. But realistically achieving goals take time. Set aside the time that is needed to put toward achieving your goals. If you need to wake up an hour earlier, or go to bed an hour later, then do it, in the end it will be worth the sacrifice. You must be willing to find the time to live your bigger vision.
4. Be Willing to Invest Money:
If it takes money to achieve your goal, you can set up a separate bank account, and save a little money at a time. You can also just start with things that cost the least expensive, as it relates to achieving your goals. For example, if your goal is to go back to school, buying school supplies can be less expensive than paying tuition. Another example is, if you want to start a business, buying a notebook and writing out your business plan, is going to be less expensive than renting a space. The key is to start with what you have, and build upon that.
Also, look for any ways you can put money toward your goal. For example, instead of eating out once a week, can you start eating out once a month? Or instead of buying that new outfit you want, can you wait until a later date? It might take a sacrifice financially, but just like the investment of time, in the end it is worth it.
5. Stay Positive:
Be happy about your vision, and don’t let anyone or anything rob you of your vision. Be aware of people and circumstances that bring negativity to your life, and don’t let it affect your self-confidence or drive. Negative people tend to have negative lives, and positive people tend to have positive lives. So thinking in a positive way better helps you to achieve your bigger vision.
I hope this article has inspired you to live a bigger vision, because that is something you deserve, and it is possible.
