How Clear Is Your Vision?
How looking ahead will clarify today.
What do you want to be when you grow up?

It gets more complicated when you ask an adult, “What do you want to be?”
Have you asked yourself that question lately? If so, what’s your answer?
Most of us have an idea of what we want to do, at least in terms of work. Sometimes it’s crystal clear and unwavering. Sometimes our goal is ripe for change. Clarifying what you want in your life — what you want to be — will make your life better.

Establishing your vision will provide a clear mental picture of what you want your total health and life to be in the future. This can be used as the foundation for the motivation to continue on your journey to your future self.
Starting point: Write your own eulogy. It sounds morbid, but it will give you tremendous power over your life. Who do you want to be? What do you want to be known for?
Quick tip: With every decision or challenge, remind yourself of what your vision is. It will give you clarity, and hopefully, reduce anxiety.
Whether you want to be an innovator, a volunteer, a great parent, go-to friend, a leader, a team player… it’s an exciting question!
