Your vision will serve as a checkpoint every time you are facing a challenging decision. Just ask yourself, will this help to actualize my life vision or not.

Your mission is different from your vision. Your vision is how you see your future, while your mission is how you will live your days. Your life mission statement helps you stay focused, and spend your time and effort in all the right places.



Your Life Vision and Mission—Articulated

Don’t get intimidated by the word analysis. Analyzing your life will help you understand why things happen in your life the way they happen. In this stage, you will observe your life in the areas you determined. Then, you will focus on understanding what is going on, why it is happening, who are the key players, what is your role in it, is it good or bad, and so many other questions that will enlighten you and strengthen your understanding of your life.

When you start analyzing your life, you will take inventory of your blessings as well as the challenges you face. You will increase your self-awareness including your thoughts, your struggles, what makes you tick and what triggers your fears and put you under pressure.
