How To Write a Vision Statement from your PR coach (1109 hits)

Do you wish you knew an easy effective way to be as successful as possible? Do you want to be the leader in your field? Do you wish you could attract prospects easily and effortlessly to your

business? Then you need what Bill Gates, Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa and Martha Stewart have in common. They had a vision that propelled them and you can too.

A business vision statement is an inspirational, energizing idea that you can use to excite others. A truly successful vision is a conscious creation and has to be consistent and expressed in what you do and how you do it.

Ask yourself what you want to get out of having a successful business vision statement: what excites you about the future; where are you trying to take your business; how do you want to manifest wealth in your life?

Be bold and go where you have not gone before.

Why do you need to develop a vision statement?

Without vision, you will have nothing to aspire to, except the daily grind of work, not business. You will dry up, burn out and your spirit will die. Without a clear Vision, you are constantly reactive to life’s daily changes. You will waste time, become distracted, lose money and are unsuccessful.

Simple vision statements are the best. The easier they are to communicate, the more essential they become to you and your business. You need a vision to be more effective, more desirable and more attractive to your clients and customers. Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ original vision statement was very simple: “ A computer on every desk.” It worked well for over thirty years.

Clarity is the key to a simple vision statement, yet a simple vision can be very profound. Remember Mother Teresa? She just wanted to help the poor, and ultimately became a saint the Roman Catholic Church. It all started with a simple vision statement: easy to communicate to others and a willingness to do whatever it took to get her vision seen and heard by others.

1. Make the time to create a business vision statement.

You vision can come to you in the shower, when speaking with others, even while out for a walk. Take notes of every inspiration, thought, word and deed that comes to you during any aspect of your day. Do your best, and in no time at all, you will be able to create your vision statement.

a) What excites you about the future?

b) Where are you trying to take your business?

c) How do you want to manifest wealth in your life?

2. Create your first vision statement.

Your first vision statement may only be the beginning. Once you begin you will be able to create your vision statement in no time at all.

Create a quiet space without distractions. A quiet space is vital because the miracle of clarity comes from a quiet mind, a new relationship with yourself. Write down any thoughts or ideas you may have. Brainstorm inside your own brain. Ask yourself what you want to get out of having a successful business vision statement:

3. A Vision Statement has an impact on Business.

Remember, a vision statement is about the impact you and your business will have in the world. This vision is what pulls you forward. With a clear business vision statement, each day is effortless, with more satisfaction and prosperity in your life.

Simplicity, clarity, authenticity and inspirational are the cornerstones for writing your vision statement. Let these words work for you as well as they have worked for others.

I like Bill Gates. I love that it had no emotion and you can see the "numbers" in such a simple statement. How do you include inspiration without sounding preachy?

I would love a one liner.
