Embark on a Journey of Self-Discovery: The Power of Personal Vision Statements

August 26, 20232 min read

Empower your dreams with deliberate planning, for today's actions shape tomorrow's triumphs. - Chantelle Davis

Perhaps you're asking why creating a personal vision statement would be worth your while when your motivation and goals already remain strong. What benefits would result from creating this document, given all its time and effort requirements? Here are the answers:

Personal vision statements offer numerous advantages to those who create them, so here are the top three benefits from creating your own vision statement:

It gives you a sense of direction

Personal vision statements provide clarity of purpose. A personal vision statement gives you a sense of direction, so you know where you stand right now and the path ahead is clear and understandable - something which most humans crave in today's complex and chaotic society.

If you find yourself becoming disorientated or feeling uncertain of where your goals should lie, simply revisiting your vision statement can help bring reality back into focus. Don't underestimate its psychological advantages!

It helps motivate you

Motivation can come and go. Sometimes you'll feel more motivated than other times; other times you won't even want to work towards your goals at all - possibly due to being busy or frustrated about progress being made on them.

Lacking motivation requires discipline to bring about change; but recovering your passion should also be one of your goals.

Personal vision statements have been shown to provide additional motivation when motivation lags. When times get tough, this extra push may help keep pushing and get over the finish line successfully.

It provides a framework for decision making

Decision making can be challenging for adults, so having a framework to guide our decision making may make the task easier. Making decisions in line with our values will keep us moving in the direction we desire for ourselves and may prevent unnecessary detours along our journeys.

Personal vision statements provide a framework to aid decision-making by helping to evaluate options, particularly complex ones. An evaluation will reveal which options move you toward meeting your next goal or further away, which ones respect your values or which would require compromise to do so.

Use a yes/no framework to easily evaluate which options merit further investigation and which should be eliminated, taking the stress out of decision making and helping you make choices that will lead to success.
