Suggestions for Revising Your LifeVision
Sit down with the written copy of your LifeVision and while following along to the recorded version, make notes in the margins, indicating the Revisions or additions you would to make. Reconstruct LifeVision statements that lack power. This is evident if it becomes boring to listen to or if the words do not elicit much emotion. Other indicators a ReVision would be helpful is if you are having trouble visualizing the stated goal or if the desire to achieve it isn’t there anymore.If you experience any of these symptoms, analyze the obstacle by asking yourself the following questions:
1- Is the goal too overwhelming? Should it be broken down into smaller steps and only include the first step in this LifeVision.
- Statement: I own a successful Massage Therapy business with 10 Therapists working for me. My overall business clientele includes 100 clients.
- Revised Statement: On June 30, I am a Certified Massage Therapist. Two years from now, I have 40 regular clients.
2- Do I doubt myself because of habitual ways of thinking or lack of self-confidence? What can I do to add more belief and credibility to this particular goal?
3- How can I state this goal is a way I can visualize it better? What details are missing?
Keep a record of new LifeVision ideas and goals you wish to achieve in your journal. It is inevitable that new ideas will come to you. Write them in your journal so you don’t forget them and add them to your next ReVision. You will be especially motivated when you start seeing your goals are being reached, encourage new and bigger things to accomplish.
Every two to four months, you will more than likely feel the need for a ReVision as you reach your goals. It is not necessary to update every time you accomplish a goal, however when there are many things that have been accomplished, that is a good indicator to revise with new goals and ideals.
