Life comes at you fast. It’s easy to feel like you’re always on the defense. Like you just keep on, keeping on without any end game in sight. That’s why it’s so important to create a vision for your life.
But, how do you do this? I broke it down into three easy steps you can take today to begin creating your vision and giving your life purpose again!
1: Come Up With A Blueprint
What inspires you? What’s your plan? Create something that you love to remind you of your vision and your goals.
What does this look like? Make it unique to you! You are the master designer of your life, and your thoughts are psychic. Think about what you want to do, where you want to go and what you want to do with your life, and create something special to you.
For me, my blueprint is a vision board. I stick it in my room and I look at it every day as a reminder to myself.
So, whether it’s a vision board like mine, or just writing on a piece of paper, have your blueprint somewhere you can see.
2: Start Before You’re Ready
This is huge.
“We waste our time waiting for a path to appear, but it never does because we forget the paths that are made by walking and not waiting. And we forget there’s absolutely nothing about our present circumstance that prevents us from making progress again, one tiny step at a time.” – Mark and Angel
I love this quote. If we just sit and wait on the front lines thinking “one day I’ll have the time to do what I need to do” or “it’s not time for me right now, I can’t have a vision”, you’re not taking those baby steps. You have to start before you’re ready to start!
3: Take Those Baby Steps
Each step counts. They count if you are on you are metaphorically on your belly, on your knees, crawling, inching forward. Congratulations! If you are even one percent better, that’s all you need to be. That’s all you need to do. Just take baby steps each & every day.
I was listening to Barney Brown’s podcast with Patrice Gordon, and it was amazing. Patrice Gordon said, “What is meant for me is not going to miss me.” That struck me so deep. We worry and we have anxiety, but if we’re trying every day to take those baby steps, you can take comfort knowing that what is meant for you, is not going to miss you if you are trying each day.
“What you think you become, what you feel you attract, what you imagine you create.” – Buddah
The grand creator of the universe is here. He knows your heart and He knows you’re trying. If you keep the faith in your belief, in whatever that looks like to you, you’ll attract what you want. So, imagine something, create something, design what you want for your life, get your blueprint out and take those baby steps to follow it.
And are you scared? Is it hard? I am, too. But even when the going gets tough, I wake up the next day and I try again. Why? Because I have a vision, and I have a plan. I know that I meant to do that. And it’s my purpose. So what is yours? That’s what you need to do – you need to find that out. In Isaiah 41:10, God says, “Fear thou not for I am with the bee, not just be not dismayed for I am. Thank God I will strengthen me. I will help the I will uphold the with the right hand of my righteousness.”
If you are thinking your baby steps aren’t enough, if you are feeling like you’re on the defense, remember these 3 things this week. Create a vision for your life and take those baby steps towards it. And remember, baby steps count!
