Human beings control their own lives and destinies. To lead a good life, they need to have leadership qualities. One of the essential qualities is the ability to look beyond the past into the future. The true leader uses the experience of the past as a reference. It will not dwell in it, whether it is good or bad.
As Anthony Robbins has often said in his works “The past is not the same for the future unless you live there”. The leader learns the lesson from the past, but he is not obsessed with it. Neither he regretted it nor is he euphoric about the past. He only accepts the past as a fact. He just looks at the course of action he needs to take for the future. A leader must have visions. In this post, we will talk about how to create a vision for the future of your life.
To have a good future, we must have the ability to see what our desired situation is going to be. There are a few steps to take to create the quality of having that vision. The ability to look at your desired future will be critical to your success.
1. Write down what you want in each area of your life.
There must be many things that you want. Write your goals in each area. Your goals can be about your health, education, career, finance, relationship, spiritual, or self-improvement. Make sure to cover all the main areas that you think are important.
Writing down your goals will be the most important step in inducing the ability to see the future more clearly.
2. Create your vision.
Make your vision bylooking for some pictures that match your goals. They don’t have to be exactly a few photos that match what you want, but they have to be some more relevant. They can be from any sources like magazines, their own albums, the Internet, or other printed materials.
Gather all the photos and paste on a large board the way you want. This is your vision to make you excited about the future. This is where you will come back to see each time you want to encourage yourself to look to your future.
3. Visualize your success.
Look at each photo in the viewing frame and visualize what you have achieved in each area. Feel your feeling when you visualize. Visualization is the most powerful tool for success. It is also a way to practice your ability to look to the future and create your vision.
4. Take massive actions until you succeed.
You will not succeed without having attitudes. There is no vision for those who take no action. Because without action, your ability to see the future disappears. If you have no control over the future by not taking any action, how can you see what will happen? Make sure you take useful action if you want to create your vision.
5. Focus and employ the law of attraction
Focus on what you want until you get it. With an intense focus on your goals, you will attract the circumstances and attributes you want in your life according to the law of attraction. The more focus you have, the greater the chance of success that you will acquire.
Every good leader can see his future, including the future of his organization.
