Your vision is the picture that you have of yourself, your life and your future.
Whether you like it or not, it is also what you are living right now. Whatever is your dominate focus in your life is creating your reality.
If you are experiencing lack in your life, check your focus. You will find that you are spending most of your time focused on what you are lacking. You can turn this around by focusing only on what you desire.
It’s impossible to have vision and worry at the same time. If worry is holding you back, you must replace that worry with vision.
Did you know that your mind does not distinguish between what is real and what is imagined?
Have you ever had a dream, and upon awakening, it was still so real and vivid in your mind that your heart was racing, or your emotions were charged?
So, what if you could fool your mind into creating your perfect life?
You can change the entire direction of your life by replacing worry with vision. And, it all starts with writing your vision down.
Take a clear look at your past. How much of it has been dictated by worry, fears, false assumptions, and a scarcity mentality?
Most people put their focus on what they lack, instead of clearly visualizing what they want.
The more time you spend in “feeling” anticipation for something great about to happen in your life, the quicker your life will change, and begin to look more like the life you desire!
Begin to write the vision of your perfect life, in addition to your dream book.
Ask and answer these questions while you do this –
If time and money was not an obstacle….
Where would I live?
What would my house be like?
What kind of car would I drive?
What would my family be like?
What type of trips would we take?
What type of charities would I donate to?
How would I spend a typical day?
What type of work would I do?
How would my health be?
What types of food would I eat?
What would be my greatest accomplishment?
What words would be spoken about me by others?
What would my funeral be like?
Now, the funeral part may seem a little morbid, I realize. But, when you think about it, your funeral really sums up the life you lived. How do you want yours summed up?
Have fun with this task and get VERY creative and dream VERY big. After all, life is known to give you what you ask for. You don’t want to discover you asked for the wrong things! It’s like going through the drive through – you better check your order before you drive off!
Get your vision VERY clear in your head. Write out your “perfect day”, answering the above questions. Make several copies of it. Keep one on your nightstand and read it each morning and last thing before you fall asleep. Your subconscious works while you sleep. Keep one in your day timer and one at your desk.
Your Vision is far more powerful than your goals, and will lead you to and through your goals. That is why you must have a very clear, precise vision and stay very close to it.

Tami, would love to hear more about your vision! Having it in front of you is powerful so go for it!

Thanks Jackie! The Ross Clan Motto is Success nourishes hope and at first glance that seems backwards… but I think it’s right on. As you step forward and accomplish the little tasks that move you towards your vision your hope increases tenfold and you become an unstoppable force. This has inspired me to write out my vision and put it on my desk. I may even frame it!!!

Vision is everything and whatever you can do to keep that vision in front of you is critical to success!
Thanks for sharing!

I love the way you lead us to take action! After doing a dream board for the first time ever, I’m working on just these things and allowing myself to dream big.
Savor life’s best,
Wow, great stuff Jackie. As the writer Alice Bailey says, ‘Energy follows thought’ Easy to forget and not always easy to do.
