CLARITY

Emily P. Freeman, co-founder of hope*writers, gave a free webinar on clarity for writers. Before I was able to join, I had the option to answer this question:

One year from now…what do you hope to be true?

She was referring to my writing journey, but as usual, I decided to take the question to the next level and apply it to my whole damn life. I want to solve everything, but maybe that’s too big.

Maybe the writing journey IS the journey I’m on at the moment.

One year from now…what do you hope to be true?

I didn’t answer her then, but now I’ve had some time, and the benefit of her webinar to answer it more fully. I got my clarity.

Right now I’m not moving anywhere. I need to be. I want to be running toward my goal, not standing here stagnant. I thought first about saying I want to be published, but I want that to be a fact, not a hope.

One year from now, what do I hope to be true…

I hope to be running. Not held back by fear or doubt. I hope to be free from my current burdens and to have the luxury of choice.

Emily was absolutely right that I need some DIRECTION and the place to start is with my new VISION STATEMENT. That’s my next right step and I’m taking it today.

She says a vision statement should be 4 things:
1. Short
2. Simple
3. Hopeful
4. NOT ABOUT YOU

I’ve been brainstorming and this is going to be the header for my new website (coming soon):

EVALUATE. EDUCATE. ELEVATE.

What do you think?

What’s your vision statement? What’s your next right step?
