Do you know how to set visions that are strong?
Setting strong visions comes down to setting a vision statement, or a mission statement. Knowing what your dream is and that it is so big that you want it to come true.
- Concise. While not as short as vision statements, mission statements generally still get their point across in one sentence.
- Outcome-oriented. Mission statements explain the fundamental outcomes your organization is working to achieve.
- Inclusive. While mission statements do make statements about your group’s key goals, it’s very important that they do so very broadly.
Example: My vision to help women find their strong voice and know that they have passions that can set them free.
I inspire others to take action in their lives and make a difference. Finding your true self can open doors and unscrew lids that you never knew were there. Living from within yourself, you can achieve any goal you set!
