Personal vision statement examples always have to be from big companies?

Individuals aren’t allowed to live their lives based on their own personal vision right?

Wrong.

There’s something to be said about groups, companies, and individuals who have them.

Everyone who’s ever made a serious impact or achieved personal success has had a vision of how the world would be once they were successful.

What is a Personal Vision Statement?

The best examples of a personal vision statement will have the following as their key components:

  • A Mission statement
  • Core Values & Beliefs

Your mission statement is what you do each day (short-term goals) to reach the end result that you would like to see someday (long-term effect).

A personal vision statement is not only your GPS guidance system, but it serves as a reference point for all the decisions you make in life.

Companies use vision statements to be the deciding factor when it comes to making basic and strategic decisions.

In a world where you have endless options that could occupy your time, getting results in your personal growth requires that your actions be effective, and a personal vision statement gives you a map for making this so.

Personal vision statements are:

  1. A strategy for getting the results you want in life
  2. A map that shows you how to reach the summit of your dreams
  3. A story you tell about the impact and mark you will leave on the world
  4. Your guide for saying “yes” and “no” in a sea of endless options

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

For High Achievers

Vision Statement: A world where everyone has precisely what they need to accomplish the huge goals and dreams they have or their own lives

For Nurturers

Vision Statement: Seeing that the world’s children and those suffering always have the care and emotional protection they require to get through tough times.

For Brainiacs

Vision Statement: To increase the value and scope of mathematics and scientific discover in the third world, where geniuses are left undiscovered.

For Rulers

Vision Statement: To increase the standard and quality of the worlds leaders through rigorous training and strengthening of character in today’s youth.

For Introverts

Vision Statement: That society will see an increased popularity and need for work at home jobs.

For Extraverts

Vision Statement: A world where walking up to someone and starting a conversation is no longer seen as weird.

For Adventurers

Vision Statement: Lower air fare, and increased availability for young people to travel and see the world during their youth

How to create a vision statement

So how do we create our personal vision statement? Easy

1. Focus on the Future

What do you want to have accomplished in the future? A vision is you looking to the future and seeing the result of your actions. Think of what change you would like to make, visualize it in the future tense, and use that in your vision statement.

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“A world where people are judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin – Dr. King (paraphrased)

2. Pick a Direction

Consult your life plan. How is your vision statement going to compliment the path you’ve chosen to take in life?

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

Helping people overcome their self imposed obstacles by overcoming my own and reaching all of my goals

3. Make it Relevant

Make the vision fit nicely. There’s no reason to make up some fantasy world just to waste time. Guide your vision statement so that it’s relevant for your life and society.

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“Reaching a state in the world where we are no longer relying on fossil fuel to power our civilization”

4. Fill it with Purpose

Find a strong reason for doing this. A vision statement doesn’t just sit on the shelf; you need a good reason for doing it. They also require effort and time. The effort required will get difficult at times, so make sure you have a strong sense of purpose attached to this vision or you might break when the going gets tough.

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“To rid people of their concern, because life is too short to be stressed all the time, and in the end, what concerns us right now rarely holds the same importance to us in the future. – Jim Carrey (paraphrased with some added)

5. Include your Core Values

Name the ideals that matter to you. When you know what you value, you can then work to add more of that into the world. You could inspire others to be more courageous or fight against the dishonesty you abhor.

Take the Core Values test

Personal Vision Statement Example:

“To instill a sense of responsibility and adventure in all the worlds children”

6. Strive to Create Rewarding Experiences

What internal reward will you get from your vision? Life is not all about having an impact on the world or living solely for others. It needs to be deeply fulfilling for you too!

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“To have impacted the lives of a million people living in the third world so I can feel like I gave something extraordinary to my home country.”

7. Make it Challenging Enough

Create a vision that will make you sweat. Everyone feels better after a hard workout. Part of creating fulfilling vision is working toward something that will challenge you. It’s a good way to make sure you never get bored.

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“To achieve and remain at my ideal weight for the rest of my life and show others how to do the same.”

8. Make sure it Inspires you (& others!)

Create a vision that causes jaws to drop. There’s nothing better than accomplishing something that will bring tears to peoples eyes. Create a vision that people will be fascinated and inspired by. “Don’t be afraid to dream a little bigger darling.”

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“Showing women politicians around the world how to command the respect of their male counterparts and occupy a serious space in the political arena”.

9. Be Clear and Concise

Be as simple as possible. Don’t “beat around the bush” in your vision statement. There’s no reason to overburden your vision statement with jargon, or add a million huge words. Avoid creating a vague statement that nobody can understand. You’re not a company, but if you were, anybody in the world should be able to read and immediately understand your vision.

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“To ensure that various nations on planet earth give proper consideration and attention to the safety and care of it’s various kinds of downtrodden individuals…” (too wordy)

“A world that is makes taking care of the homeless a serious concern!” (better)

10. Have a Timeline in Mind

A timeline means  a finish line. Don’t give yourself any reason to put your vision off until tomorrow. If you’ve paid attention, and followed all the rules when creating your vision statement, you should feel no trepidation in starting now. Give yourself a time that it needs to be done, or at least a timeline where you need to have made a certain amount of progress.

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

“Decreasing the amount of sprayed foods consumed (wherever you are) by the year (5-10 years from now)

More on Vision Statements…

We go through life a bit differently. We don’t always feel unstoppable. We certainly don’t always feel fierce.

But still, you and I both want to live life like we’re the superhero in our own movie.

We don’t necessarily want our name in lights, but we do want to die feeling like the world is a better place because of us.

This is not a post about the vision statements of companies.

Instead, we’re going to go over a basic formula and discover how to craft our very own personal vision statement.

Personal Vision Statement Examples:

  1. “To inspire the worlds youth to think big, have serious impact on society and overcome obstacles using my experience having to do it all on my own.”
  2. “To live life as fully as I can, grow my reality to match my internal growth and die with no regrets.”
  3. “To transform the world of business into a customer-centric environment that is focused on exellent quality service and ideal capitalism rather than instant gratification and profit.”
  4. “To educate parents all over the world how to raise children that will be well prepared for all the challenges they will face in their generation.”

A good Personal Vision Statement example:

  1. keeps you on track
  2. helps us push through times of laziness
  3. something we can cling to when the fear comes
  4. gives us a feeling of pride when we see it manifest in the world
