Create your Vision Affirmation Statement

New Year’s resolutions, goals, a word or phrase…there are many options for the how to enter the new year with purpose and clarity. This one has to do with affirming what you want for 2014.

This is an exercise I did as part of a “The Story of Your Life Vision Board” class and I thought it might be useful to anyone looking for an affirmation of their vision for the coming year.

Vision affirmations are all about stating it as though it is currently true and if you’re not use to affirmations, it may feel awkward at first, but you may grow to like.

So grab a pen and paper and get started!

Vision Affirmation Exercise

Exercise: {write down}

(1) What words describe the kind of life you want?

(2) What do you want people to say about you?

(3) What do you want more of in your life?

(4) What do you offer the people in your circle of influence?

My example:
(1) Peaceful, creative
(2) She was a teacher, she blazed trails
(3) Love, joy, authenticity
(4) inspiration, opportunities to connect

Now, like Mad Libs, use the above to fill in the blanks and draft your Vision Affirmation statement.

I am living a (1) ____ life that allows me to (2) ____. I am attracting more (3) ____ into my own life while bringing (4) ____ to the people around me.

My example: I am living a peaceful and creative life that allows me to blaze trails and teach others by my own experiences. I am attracting more love, joy and authenticity into my own life while bringing inspiration and opportunities for connection to the people around me.

You try it!

Of course you can go back to tweak your answers and give your affirmation better flow and meaning. Have fun with it until it sounds like something you can really believe in.

What do you DO with your Vision Affirmation statement?

  • Print copies to put in places where you can read your affirmation when you need it.
  • Use it to guide your decisions about what to say “yes” and “no” to.
  • Share it with loved one who will help you bring your vision to life.
  • Use it to help you create a Vision Board. Take the words, phrases and word pictures you used and find images to go with them and create a board that serves as a visual reminder of your vision.

Stay tuned! Tomorrow’s post shows you HOW to create your vision board based–and I’ll show you mine!
