How to Create a Vision of Who You Want to Be

Are you unhappy with where you’re in life right now?

If you’re unhappy where you’re in life, it could be you’re not creating the right vision about yourself. Think back to recent thoughts you had. Were they negative thoughts or feelings like you’ve hit a roadblock?

Shift Your Focus

Shift your focus to a life that you want or a person that you want to become. If you want to have a life similar to an idol of yours, read about how that idol has become a success and use that as a guide to help you accomplish something similar.

The Power of Positive Images

When you create a positive image within your mind, it’ll set up neural pathways to help you reach your goals. The more you reinforce this mental image the more pathways will be created. If there’s information available online that can help you with your vision, use it to your advantage.

When you’ve determined your vision and the steps you believe will help you get there, continue to imagine that vision. Do this on a daily basis. Your brain will get so used to this vision it will become a subconscious process.

This is not to say you can’t alter your plan or your vision.

There may be something you thought you wanted, but as you progress, you find this not to be the case. There’s nothing wrong with that. If this happens, create another vision and move on from there. Your brain will form pathways for this new vision.

Vision Great but Plan Not Working

If your vision is fine but the plan isn’t getting you where you need to be, don’t be afraid to make changes with it. Plans are guidelines only. They can be changed as needed.

This can happen when new information comes to light along the way, information which wasn’t available when you first got started.


Be prepared for criticism while creating this new vision for yourself. It is yours and yours alone.

People may not understand what you’re trying to shoot for. Hold to your beliefs and prove them wrong. Your critics aren’t the ones who have to live with the vision you make for yourself.

You’ll find when you reach your goals those same critics will suddenly be on your side. They’ll even claim to have been there for you all along.

It’s annoying, but that is how people behave.

It’s not worth the aggravation.

Just move on with your vision and let them think whatever they want.
