Creating the Vision for Your Future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The book of Proverbs says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The Ghanaian proverb says, “The poorest person in the world is not the one without money, but the one without vision.” The difference between the winners and the “also ran” are the visions and powerful images they create about their future.  This is true in athletics and it is even more important in life.

Whether you are 16 or 60, having a compelling vision for your future is absolutely vital for success and health. Research on aging has found that those individuals who have a higher sense of purpose live healthier and longer lives. In this session, you will:

Learn how to craft your life and design your future. Take the long view for your future to move beyond the day-to-day tactics that may keep you in the past. Leave with a vision of your future and specific actions you can take to propel you toward that future.
