ENVISION: imagine as a future possibility
If you were to ask 10 people what success means, you would likely get 10 different answers. That’s because success is deeply personal and subject to change as we journey through life. Regardless of your age, it’s important to have your own definition of success to inspire and guide you. Without it, your life will be directed by other people’s vision of success.
Give Yourself Permission to Create Your Own Definition of Success
To envision success is to tap into your imagination and create a mental picture of a future state. You can initiate the process by thinking about how you would like your life to be at future point in time (e.g., 1 year, 3 years, etc.). What have you accomplished? Who have you become? What have you gained? Where have you been? Who have you spent time with? How have you impacted others? Once you have a mental picture of success, get in touch with how it would feel to achieve your vision of success. Capture your thoughts and feelings in a notebook or journal.
You may want to consider creating a vision board/visual representation of your desired future state. Include words, images, and symbols that represent your vision and feelings of success. Keep your board where you can see it on a daily basis.
