As we look to the future, it’s important to create a clear vision for what we want our lives and work to look like in the coming months and years. Here at SimTech USA, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to achieve their dreams. That’s why we’re encouraging our community of readers to take some time today and think about where they would like to be in the future.
However, many people feel overwhelmed when it comes to creating a vision for their life. They don’t know where to start or what to include in their vision. This blog post will discuss using Young’s Vision Formula to create a clear and concise vision for this year and beyond.
Young G Chung, the owner of MindMapper and the creator of the Young’s Vision Formula, identifies happiness and success as the two main components of a fulfilling personal vision.
Step 1. Happiness
Happiness is a goal we all strive for, and this exercise encourages us to recognize the moments when happiness enters our lives. Taking the time to document these occasions will allow us an opportunity for reflection, so let’s get started!
Reflect on the moments in your life when you felt the happiest. Take a look at how happiness manifests itself across Self, Family, Work, and Neighbors, this includes Friends, Society, and the World. Once completed, analyze these results to uncover any patterns that may have emerged from your findings. Is there something noteworthy? Summarize it with one sentence and enter it into topic 1.
Step 2. Success
Achieving success can mean different things to various people, however, for many of us, it means living a life with no regrets. To build that kind of future, we need to focus on cultivating personal values and striving towards making positive contributions to our society; these are the key ingredients needed for having zero qualms about your past decisions.
To ensure success on an individual and social level, reflect upon your personal values for Self, Family, Work, and Neighbors. Once these have been identified, list and select the three most important ones and type them in topic 2. Next, envision what success in each category could look like from a social standpoint and write them down. After reviewing any patterns or standouts that arise, create one summary sentence and enter it into topic 3.
Step 3. Vision and Mission Statement
With our hard work completed, the next step is to assemble the three aspirational goals we have just created in topics 1 to 3 and combine them into one meaningful vision statement, a sincere declaration of intent. To make this statement more actionable, we further break it down to a mission statement which serves as a roadmap to realizing the vision. It details the major steps necessary for achieving the vision.
Crafting your own successful vision requires more than just the main ingredients; there is also a secret ingredient, dreaming big and knowing how to execute the plan. Combining this with purposeful projects and staying organized as you work through the details will enable you to realize your vision on schedule and, ultimately, your dream.
