You may be wondering ‘what on earth is victorious visioning’? Well, it’s thinking ahead: looking towards a goal you have for your life, or creating a picture of the kind of person or character that you want to be.
So, what does that look like for you? In the video and blog below, I explore in a bit more detail why it can be really helpful and important to have a vision.
You might find it helpful to write your own vision or mission statement: two or three sentences that describe your purpose and your passion on this earth. This could be your vision for right now, or it could be something that you have in your head for a few years’ time. It might be a vision of how you want to look or feel in 5 months, or 5 years, or perhaps where you want to be in your career, and you can use this to your advantage.
When you have a vision that you are aiming for, subconsciously you work backwards to ensure that your lifestyle lines up with that vision. You are more likely to build habits that underpin that lifestyle, make decisions that line up with your habits and develop your mindset to line up with your decisions. So, by having that bigger picture vision to start with, it actually helps you to make decisions on a day-to-day basis.
Subconsciously or consciously, you know what you’re aiming for and the more that you dwell on that vision and how or who you want to be, then the more it will happen. Also, the more you think about it and the more you visualise being that kind of person, the more the pathways in the brain are created to enable you to move towards being that person.
That might sound a bit crazy, but these neural pathways in the brain are channels; the more you think about something the more those grooves get dug, enabling your thoughts to take the same direction in the future. And this makes it more likely that you will become that person who you are visioning.
And finally, visioning gives you a bigger picture perspective. So, if you are concentrating occasionally on your vision and the kind of person you want to be, it can really put any daily struggles that you might be going through into perspective. It can perhaps make you realise that some things that you think about a lot of the time aren’t actually all that important when you consider them in the context of a bigger picture.
And thinking about your bigger vision can also give you pleasure. It can help you to make sure what you are doing in your life day to day, lines up with that bigger vision of the person God has called you to be.
