Maintaining your vision and having goals By Pegine Echevarria

You may not have a long term life vision, but you can have a six month or one year vision. The questions to ask yourself are:

– One year from now I will have accomplished … (add at least three things)
– When you do accomplish those things what will you have?
– What will you think of yourself?
– How will you talk to yourself?

Get a bunch of magazines and cut out words, pictures, articles and quotes that reflect your vision and what you will have. Put them in an album. Look at the album at least once a week.

Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of Chicken Soup of the Soul Series says you have to have “Bodacious Goals”. Make yourself dream large, seek visions of your life and find pictures and words that reflect that vision, it works!

Twenty years ago I started my album. I cut pictures of the view I would see from my house, What the family room would look like, some of the features of my dream house.

When I moved into our new home five years ago my girlfriend shrieked and told me to get my album. She showed me that the house has the same architectural details, the living room was almost identical and so was the view from my patio.

So many of my pictures and words have come true, so many that I realized I have to start a new one for the next twenty years of my life!
