The most important thing you can do each day is to consult your vision map. The map is your vision of your life. It shows you where you are going. Without vision it's easy to fall prey to the heat of the moment and the whims of your habitual behaviors. Even if you begin your journey by setting small goals in different areas of your life, at least you will know in which direction to head. You need to revisit your goals, visions, and dreams in order to have a fixed reference point, a true north by which you can navigate and decide which steps you can take to bring your desires closer to becoming a reality.

Your vision acts as a reference point. Thus, it is essential to take a moment every day in which you focus on your vision and bring your goals into your conscious awareness. This process can be very simple. When you get up in the morning, before you begin your day:

• Take a moment of silence and meditation, and give yourself permission to have all that you desire.

• Tell yourself that it is safe for you to fulfill your heart's wishes.

• Remember where you want to go, why you want to go there, and what will be waiting for you when you arrive. Allow yourself to imagine how you will feel, how you will look, and how others will be inspired by you when your vision is fulfilled.

• Think about all the opportunities you will have during the coming day to make choices that support the fulfillment of your goals and dreams.

This daily practice will inspire you to make the highest choices for yourself throughout your day. Your vision will be fresh in your mind, and you will be clear about what you want. Then all you will have to do is ask the Right Questions and you'll effortlessly know what choices to make.
