Create Your Vision Affirmation Statement

My SHINE vision board for 2015. Create yours with this fun activity!

Here’s a fun exercise to help you create your Vision Affirmation Statement!

Post was originally on my FanTABulous Women blog but I tweaked it to be less “life in general” and more “for 2015.”

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 2015.

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!

Download the worksheet here: Vision Affirmation Worksheet

Exercise: {write down}

(1) List words that describe what you want to do this year. We’re looking for ACTION words.

(2) What do you want people to say about you? What’s your legacy?

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

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

My example:
(1) SHINE, promote, reap
(2) she inspires me, she helps me live my purpose
(3) peace, collaboration
(4) creativity, opportunities to connect, strategies for living a whole-istic life

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

In 2020, I will (1) ____, allowing me to (2) ____. I am attracting more (3) ____ into my own life while bringing (4) ____ to the people around me.

My example: In 2015, I will SHINE, promote others and reap what I have sown, allowing me to inspire others to live their life’s purpose. I am attracting more peace and collaboration into my own life while bringing creativity, opportunities to connect and strategies for living a more whole-istic life 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?

  • Create a vision board! Take each set of words, decide on what images represent them to you, find those images and create your board! I did that in 2014, check it out here.

See my 2015 vision board pictured below.
