Build a Powerful Vision for Your Life by Answering One Question

Daydreaming Girl

If you would like to know how to build a powerful life vision by answering a simple question, read on. It will take you about 10-20 minutes to go through this process…

After I posted about asking yourself the right questions I noticed how powerful questions really can be. They have the power to shift our way of thinking to a different level. Especially when you try to make a change in your life or you want to define some new goals to go after, coming up with strong questions helps a lot.

Introducing The “Perfect Day” Life Vision Exercise

The question:

What Would Your Perfect Day Look Like?

… will help you to build a vision of your life. It is a very visual question which immediately takes your mind to think in pictures. And thinking about this question can help to move your life into the direction.

So before we dive more into interpreting possible answers, please go ahead and answer this question in writing for yourself. Take 5 minutes and write the answers you’re getting down on a piece of paper or in your text-program. If you can’t write it now (which you should to make this little exercise work), at least take some time now to think about your answer…..

(Write down your answer to “What Would Your Perfect Day Look Like?“)

If you want you can write it in the comment below. I’d be delighted to read it!

Did you do it? If not, do it. Now! There is no point in reading any further when you didn’t do it. C’mon, it will only take 5 Minutes.. so do it now…..

Now you may say “But my perfect day is not reality. This is not how my life can be all the time!” But this is the point of this question. Because what it does shows you is exactly what you really would like to do and be. If there is a huge gap between how your days usually look and what your perfect day looks like, answering this question will make you think. And maybe you will find some ways to move into the direction of your perfect day. At least from time to time.

Ok, that was nice, what’s next?

Here is a powerful follow-up question:

What Would Your Perfect Life Look Like?

Ok, please go ahead and answer this question in writing!

(Write down your answer to “What Would Your Perfect Life Look Like?“)

Again, if you dare use the comments to post your answer. I’m sure other people would be inspired. At least write it down for yourself.

If you haven’t done it, please do it! You will be surprised of how much value you can get out of answering these seemingly simple questions. I mean, it’s your life, not mine… so please, do it.

What did that do to you now? You just have created a powerful vision for your future!

This “vision” may seem a little out of reach for you right now. But again, that’s the point: The point of answering these questions is to get a new impulse and to see something in your mind, that COULD be your reality. All that this does is creating ideas and hopefully some drive to create the life that you truly want to live.

If you are willing to go the next step from here, a perfect follow up would be to break down your vision of your perfect life into some goals you can then work towards: Goal Setting: 7 Steps to Set Your Life Goals.

    My perfect day would start with waking just outside of Boulder, Colorado. A quick cup of coffee with my wife before getting the day pack ready for the day’s hike in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area, meeting my sister and brother-in-law for the hike. We’d get started before sunrise so that we could watch the sun rise from the mountains. I’d have my new camera with me to capture some wonderful pics. After a hard days hike, we’d stop at the little Italian restaurant in Ward. Returning home that evening I would top it off with one glass of Shiraz.

    I hope to bring this perfect day to fruition in the next year. After that I’ll plan a new perfect day.

    Here is my perfect day:

    The sunlight wakes me up rested and happy with my wife at our big white house at the ocean at 7 a.m. Weather is sunny and warm as the waves flows gently into the beach. I start with a short meditation into my day.
    Then I have a short workout that I enjoy to be energetic and healthy: I will take a run or a swim for 30 minutes.
    We have a great and healthy breakfast with our 2 kids, have fun and also some meaningful talking. Love is in the air.
    I get into my own office at 9 a.m., which is just beside our house, to do what I love to do successfully. I meet with my like-minded colleagues to discuss very briefly how we can create more value with our business this day. Then I get to work in my spacious and radiant office with a great view over the ocean. I may shoot a new video or I may write or I may talk with my trusted business partners. I love what I do, enjoy the process and have a compelling vision I’m fulfilling every day.
    I have lunch with one of my best friends and enjoy a great meal and a nice conversation.
    I end my working day at 5 p.m. to meet and play with my family.
    At 8 p.m. we go to a local concert or invite some of our friends to have a wonderful evening.
    Before I go to bed a do a reflective entry into my personal journal and bring my kids to bed, reading something for them.
    Then I meet my wife. We have a glas of wine on the terrace overlooking the sunset. We will have a peaceful night.

    Roger, honestly, not so far away. The house by the ocean is still a dream to come true… But my family and profession are giving me a lot of joy at the moment :)

    My perfect day is the day that I am myself. I see only myself , my internal and inherent power and uniqueness that creator of me is put in me! I am pleasure for being myself. I am seeing my existence and I am happy that I am myself. Eventually I have realized myself.
