It’s a new day, a new year and a new decade! What is your 2020 vision? To refresh our memories, the definition of vision is:
- The faculty or state of being able to see.
- The ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.
I would also like to refresh our memories of the definition of envision. It means: to imagine as a future possibility; visualize.
The occipital lobe, in the back of our heads, is responsible for vision and actually visualizing scenes never actually witnessed before. I think visualizing with wisdom is key to success. We need to figure out what steps we need to take to reach our goals. Taking the first step is monumental. It marks the moment you decide you are going to reach your goal.
Athletes have used visualization for a long time to build their strength, confidence, and results. The pole vaulter imagines him or herself clearing the bar even before he/she starts running towards it.
What successes do you see, hear, smell, taste, and/or feel yourself reaching? You can ask for help. Celebrate your successes no matter how small. Learn from your mistakes. May you have a happy and healthy new year!
