Living your truth is knowing who you are – and living in alignment with who you are. It is knowing what your values are, what your goals are and whats your vision for the life you want to live. Do you have a clear vision, an image in your mind, of who you want to be, what you want to do and how you want to live?

Vision is the image of the person you want to BE, what you want to DO and how you want to LIVE. Jesse Stoner Semel said this about vision, “A vision is a clearly-articulated, results-oriented picture of the future you intend to create. It is a dream with direction.”

Create your vision and build the image in your mind. Your goals are made from your values, your guidance system, to achieve your vision. Once you have your goals in clearly defined statements; read your goals daily, think about them and keep them in front of you. When you focus on your goals, you will take action, and you will achieve what you are thinking about!

Goals are the seeds that you plant in your mind, your mind is like soil. Define your goals and feel a burning desire to achieve your vision and goals. Keep your mind positive as you think about your goals and imagine yourself having achieved your vision.

Taking action to achieve your goals is like watering the seed, encouraging your goal to become and to be by accomplishing goal achieving tasks every day. Henry David Thoreau said, “If a person advances, confidently in the direction of their dreams, and endeavors to live the life they have imagined, they will meet with success unexpected in common hours.”

Visualizing and imagining your goals is like sunlight for the seed. Let your imagination go wild and free, dream and dream BIG. Imagination allows you to be open to new ideas, new creativity and more expansion. Imagination is all the infinite possibilities in reality. Napoleon Hill wrote in his book Think and Grow Rich, “…imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.”

As your goals grow becoming your vision, negative thoughts, like weeds will begin to pop up around your goals. When you become aware of negative feelings or negative thoughts, they are an indication to you that you desire for things to be different, to be changed. When you become aware of this desire that is causing negative doubt and worry, focus on your goals. Think about your goals and how you will feel when you achieve your goals and vision. Earl Nightingale says, “It stands to reason that a person who is thinking about a concrete and worthwhile goal is going to reach it, because that’s what he’s thinking about. And we become what we think about.”

Feeling the emotions of gratitude is like loving the seed that is planted. Feel the gratitude you will feel having achieved your goals NOW. Why do you want to achieve your goals, your vision? Become emotionally involved, see yourself as having already achieved your goals and vision; this creates the attraction, manifestation, desire, motivation and action within you to achieve your goals and vision.

Life is a journey! It is not the destination that brings growth, peace and happiness – it is your journey and experiences, your values and goals guiding and directing you to achieve your vision, that bring excitement and energy, your happiness and success into your life.

Are you living your truth? Are your choices and decisions made to live by your values, to achieve your goals and vision? Are you being who you want to be? Are you doing what you want to do? Are you living how you want to live?
