Why Your Vision Statement Needs to Change

Confession, I have not always been committed to my vision statement. Of course, I am talking about my personal vision statement. What I want my life to look like when I am old and ready to recount my accomplishments to my grandkids or something. Yes, I will tell you over and over again, you need to have a vision in mind if you want to be successful, but the truth is that vision will change and if you are wise you will embrace that concept. We have miniscule control over our future lives. At the end of the day, the universe is filled with random chance encounters and moments that will entice or force us to pivot. Our wisdom needs to ensure that we take advantage of these opportunities. It is the wise that claim they know nothing, and to a point sticking with what your original vision was -no matter what- is a foolish practice. Refine your vision, remix your vision, grow and enhance your vision, but do not cling to it as if it is a difficult math test and only if you answer it correctly will you succeed. Life is not a test, but a testing ground. Experiment, commit to success, and stick to your values and you will find your vision growing clearer all the time.
